MAPLE GROVE, Minn., April 13 Like the flowers beginning to bud, tootsies everywhere are coming out of their boots. Make sure your toes twinkle for their first appearance this spring with AmLactin® Foot Cream Therapy. Dr. Jacqueline Sutera, DPM, recommends the following five tips for tip top tootsies:
Lactic acid is an extremely effective humectant or a naturally occurring substance that attracts water molecules to the skin to keep it hydrated. AmLactin® Foot Cream Therapy contains the unique (patent-pending) ULTRAPLEX® formula, a high potency blend of three lactic acid alpha-hydroxy compounds that goes beyond moisturizing to exfoliate and hydrate. AmLactin® Foot Cream Therapy is available in a convenient three-ounce travel tube for the suggested retail price of $9.99.(1)
"Many patients I see neglect to care for their feet during the winter months because they are more concerned about keeping them warm than soft, silky and beautiful," said Dr. Sutera. "When warmer weather comes along and the boots come off, people are often shocked at the appearance of their feet and hesitant to slip on their first pair of sandals. AmLactin® Foot Cream Therapy is formulated with emollient and humectant ingredients plus lactic acid, a potent alpha-hydroxy acid, which exfoliates away dead skin and replenishes the skin's natural moisture. Not all moisturizers contain lactic acid, so it is important to check the label for this ingredient."
