It’s Spring and sandy barefooted outdoor adventures have just entered the chat! Before you chase the sun, we’ve got a little secret to share with you. Say hello to Real Happy – a Cape Town-based foot care brand committed to making you feel like you’re walking on sunshine all year round!
Would you like to leave rough, cracked heels and dry, unhappy feet behind? Here’s the lowdown on how to keep your feet soft and smooth with 4 easy-to-apply products from Real Happy – a go-to brand that has found its permanent spot in our beach-bags.
Exfoliate your footsies!
Exfoliating your feet is essential for sloughing away dead skin cells, calluses, and rough patches. It also enhances the appearance of your feet and prevents painful cracks and discomfort. Regular exfoliation promotes better circulation, prevents infections, and helps your feet stay soft and healthy as can be.
Infused with a natural bamboo powder called Tabashirex, Real Happy Exfoliating Mousse gently exfoliates to reveal radiant skin. This heavenly formula, with olive oil for skin health, combats bacteria and fungus, while lavender offers natural pain relief. Sandalwood’s warm aroma elevates the experience and leaves you feeling pampered.
Combat stinky, sweaty feet
Struggle with smelly, sweaty feet? It’s totally normal, and always worse in the warmer months. While exfoliating will help to combat those symptoms, taking the extra measure to keep your feet clean and infection-free starts with good hygiene.
Real Happy’s Foot Hygiene Spritz contains witch hazel for bacteria-fighting, skin-healing, and cleansing, alongside tea tree oil for potent antimicrobial benefits. Lavender oil adds anti-inflammatory properties for soothing and detoxification, while a warm, woody Sandalwood scent relaxes you while delivering anti-inflammatory and antiseptic benefits for sweaty or damaged feet. Yes please!
Pamper with a hydrating oil
Pampering your feet with a hydrating oil is a must for maintaining health and comfort. Hydrated feet are less prone to dryness, cracking, and discomfort. The nourishing properties of a good hydrating oil replenishes moisture and softens rough skin so you can step into those sandals with confidence!
Real Happy’s Hydrating Foot and Body Oil contains a blend of natural tea tree and sweet almond oils which deeply hydrate and provide antimicrobial protection to your feet. Fractionated coconut oil absorbs quickly and leaves no residue (so no slippery feet!) while also acting as an anti-inflammatory. Vitamin E promotes overall healing and shields from free radicals. Plus, you can use this hydrating oil on your body, too – amazing for arms and legs after an exfoliating shower.
Foot butter makes it all better
For the finishing touches to a deeply nourishing foot care routine, you can’t look past the power of a healing foot butter!
Combining jojoba and marula oils, this balm exfoliates and nourishes while offering an extra padding of antimicrobial protection. Rich in antioxidants, Real Happy’s Healing Foot Butter repairs cracks, soothes irritation, and moisturises skin. Plus, it smells absolutely gorgeous! Crafted with coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, papaya, and sandalwood, it softens, heals calluses, fights infections, and promotes nail and cuticle health. A great add-on after applying an exfoliating mousse.
