Working hard at the best of times, our feet are known to carry a lot of tension, which is why a foot massage can feel so incredibly relaxing for the whole body. It’s common to have dry patches of skin on our feet at any time, but coupled with the side effects of cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, skin issues such as dry and sore skin or brittle, broken and damaged nails can also cause discomfort. Also known for their reflexology touch points, which can provide a sense of holistic as well as targeted wellbeing, treating your feet at times of stress can have a big impact on your sense of self.
Jennifer Young’s collection of skincare products for feet have been designed to help relieve mental and physical stress that can be caused or exaggerated by cancer diagnosis and treatment. Ranging from a cooling foot balm to a sleep-inducing foot soak, they make for beautiful gifts as well as providing meaningful support.
Popular products include the aforementioned Defiant Beauty Mild Mint Foot Balm, which moisturises sore and cracked heels, rejuvenates flaky feet, and uses essential oils that cool and moisturise. Also popular is the Confidence Gift Collection, which includes a bath oil and foot soak using a subtle blend of essential oils chosen for their uplifting as well as healing properties.
