Summer means long, sunny days filled with beach trips, your favorite sandals and fun. It can also mean dry and even cracked skin and heels. I am in sandals as much as possible in the summer but between camping and swimming it can lead to very dry skin. All my usual tricks weren’t working so I went on the hunt for a cure and stumbled upon reviews on Atrac-tain Cream.
The bottle isn’t fancy, and it doesn’t look summery. Heck its even made from a chemical version of Urea aka pee. But I will tell you it works wonders. My feet were getting so dry that no cream and sock combo was working and they looked and felt icky. I ordered a tube of Atrac-Tain from Amazon and set out to see if it lived up to the hype. I took a shower to make sure my skin was hydrated and moist (eww word I know but accurate). Then I rubbed my feet from toe to heel with Atrac-Tain and slipped on some socks and went to sleep.
The next morning my feet looked a bit better but felt way better. The little crack on my heel and the dry skin was much smoother. I did this for 3 nights straight and WOW the results are amazing. Night one icky, dry heels and feet. By night 3 my feet looked and felt like I walk around in vats of butter all day. No dryness, no cracks just soft smooth skin. And it lasts for weeks, I do this treatment once a week to maintain and that has been enough.
The cream has not scents and absorbs surprisingly well for such a heavy hitter. The magic is how it attracts moisture and exfoliates at the same time. If you are struggling with dry feet this summer, give Atrac-Tain a try you will love the results.
