Today, we’re talking foot soaks. Soaking your feet in an Epsom salt solution is one of the oldest and most common remedies. But we can improve on even something as basic as this time-trusted foot soak. Today, there are soaks that will compliment other treatments for a variety of conditions, from treatments for athlete’s foot to toenail fungus. They’ll even help your overall foot health. And, today, we’ll highlight your options so you can find next level relief. 

Tolcylen Foot Soaks: Next Level Foot Care 

For the last few years, our podiatrist in Houston, TX has been recommending Tolcylen products. In our office, we carry all three of their original products, including a nail solution to treat fungal toenails; an antifungal cream used to treat athlete’s foot; and an antifungal spray that is used to treat your shoes, ensuring that they aren’t harboring fungus that could reinfect your feet. 

Recently, Tolcylen came out with two new products—both foot soaks—and both of which we carry in the office. We love these products because they are designed to rapidly exfoliate, cleanse, moisturize and rejuvenate your feet without drying out the skin or nails. 

First, there is the Tolcylen™ Therapeutic Foot Soak, designed to treat your feet to a spa-like experience. We love this amazing foot soak because it is specially formulated to promote optimal hygiene. Plus, it works alongside other skin and nail treatments, never compromising their effectiveness.  

We consider this the short-term soak to get your feet looking and feeling better. It is a combination of concentrated exfoliators, moisturizers and cleansers. It also contains protectants, essential oils, and salts, so it can protect your foot health while pampering tired, aching feet. 

The soak itself dissolves quickly in water, and it is perfect if you have eczema, athlete’s foot, toenail fungus, ingrown toenails and calluses. It’s also great if you have itching or flaking between your toes. And that’s mostly because this foot soak exfoliates and keeps the skin and nails clear of microscopic dirt, oil and debris that carry bacteria and fungus. 

At the same time, those skin protectants coat your skin in a silky layer that can protect vulnerable areas of your feet from drying and other forms of damage. Plus, because Tolcylen has a highly developed delivery system, this powerful combination of ingredients is able to penetrate deeply beneath the surface of your skin and nails, so your feet can feel refreshed, clean and healthy from the inside out!  

We recommend it for acutely treating athlete’s foot, abscesses and eruptions. We also suggest using after an ingrown toenail procedure. In short, it pampers your feet while preventing problems, or speeding up resolution of infections. 

Soaks For Every Day Use  Tolcylen foot soaks in pouches

Then there’s the Tolcylen Daily Micro Cleansing foot soak—our long term product recommendation. It combines moisturizers, cleansers and conditioners in a soothing crystalline salt base. You’ll benefit from using this daily foot soak regularly if you have mild skin and nail conditions. It’s also great to use after you’ve completed the course of the therapeutic foot soak described above. 

Moreover, this soak will keep your feet feeling clean, soft, and rejuvenated looking. They will just feel healthy! In conclusion, we consider these two Tolcylen foot soaks to be one-stop solutions for a wide variety of foot care needs. Whether you're fighting off toenail fungus, athlete's foot infections, or you’re just looking to refresh and soothe those tired, aching feet, we have a product that help your feet look and feel their best. In fact, when you’re done, you can even purchase a bottle of Dr.s’ Remedy nail polish, a line of nail-safe and nourishing polishes that can enhance your at home spa experience without sacrificing the strength of your toenail in the ways that often happen with traditional nail polishes and polish removers. 

When to Skip a Foot Soak 

While these therapeutic and daily soaks can be highly beneficial, there are some people who should be cautious before trying a foot soak. If you have diabetes, for example, we should discuss safe soaking practices before you try these products at home. 

Why is that the case? If neuropathy has impacted your feet’s ability to detect changes in temperature, soaking them in hot water could leave you with foot burns. Plus, if you have existing sores or wounds, we would need to carefully review any soaking plan before you begin one, in order to determine whether it will be safe for your feet. 
So, depending on your reasons for soaking your feet, we may suggest soothing alternatives, including massaging your feet; elevating them, or even gently rolling them over a tennis ball to relieve aches and pains. 

If you have a condition whose treatment could be complemented by a Tolcylen soak, but we’re worried about your foot health, we may suggest sticking to traditional treatment options for concerns like ingrown toenails, athlete’s foot and more. 

Final Thoughts 

If you want a soothing, spa-like experience at your home, one that can relieve your  aching feet, fungal toenail infections, calluses or just the stress of spending the day on your feet? Want to complement or speed up treatment for pesky ailments like athlete’s foot or fungal toenail infections? One of our Tolcylen foot soaks could be just what you’re looking for. So make an appointment today to come into the office. When you’re here, we can help you select the perfect product to suit your needs, and make sure that it’s safe for you to use given the current state of your foot health.
