How do I use Baby Foot?
Check out our page on how to use Baby Foot for detailed instructions. After the application of Baby Foot remember to wet your feet thoroughly each day (a shower is insufficient here). While feet are wet, rub them with your hands to commence peeling.
Am I able to use Baby Foot when I have tinea, corns or psoriasis?
Yes, you can use Baby Foot when conditions such as corns, tinea or psoriasis are evident. Baby Foot is able to help with the management of such skin conditions.
I am keen to try Baby Foot, but have some intense sporting activities this week - am I still able to use it?
We do not advise playing intense sport immediately after the application of Baby Foot since the layer of dead skin on your feet is beginning to soften and more prone to peeling, and the new layer of skin underneath is more sensitive.
Do you recommend using Baby Foot each day over the next two weeks?
No, you apply Baby Foot once by soaking your feet for two hours. It can take between 5-10 days for you to see results and your feet begin to peel. This can take up to two weeks, although results will vary.
I have very rough heels - can I still use Baby Foot?
Baby Foot is perfect for people who have dry, rough feet or have cracked heels. However, the lotion may cause stinging if you have cuts and cracks on your feet, so please try a patch test first.
Is it necessary to wash my feet after soaking?
Definitely. Once you have soaked your feet for two hours in the socks, wash your feet carefully.
When I am applying Baby Foot do I need to sit down for the whole two hours?
You can walk a small amount if necessary, but we recommend limiting movement as much as possible when using Baby Foot - please also be aware of the possibility of leakage.
My feet were very dry after using Baby Foot, am I able to use moisturiser on my feet?
We advise people not to use moisturisers while their feet are peeling. However, if the dryness is very bad it is possible to moisturise your feet lightly with an oil-free product.
I used Baby Foot a week ago, and there has been no peeling - how long will it take to start?
Your feet will usually begin to peel after 1-2 weeks and be completed within three weeks. However, results are different for everyone and your feet may begin to peel within 2-14 days. During the 7-10 day period after your application it is important to make sure you wet your feet thoroughly each day. While you are doing this, rub your feet with your hand to stimulate the peeling, but do not use a foot paddle or brush.
I did everything that the instructions said to, but my feet have not peeled and it has not been three weeks. The skin on my feet must be too thick. Can I use Baby Foot again?
Absolutely. If you applied Baby Foot and saw no results we recommend you try again after four weeks. If the skin on your feet is extremely thick it may take 2-3 applications for it to achieve the desired results and settle in to the quarterly application process. Results do vary for each person.
Why has Baby Foot worked really well in some areas and not others?
When this happens, the gel may not have been distributed enough to the areas of the foot that needed a higher level of concentration. Once you have the socks on, make sure you distribute the gel to the areas that need the most attention.
