DIABETES AND NS 8
- People with Diabetes have reduced sensation in their extremities, particularly in their feet
- Using physical abrasion, such as foot files and pumice stones, is not recommended.
- Skin may be removed unknowingly, which can lead to diabetic foot ulcers which in turn can lead to amputations.
- NS 8 Heel Balm gently but effectively exfoliates thickened skin without the use of foot files.
- Skin provides a protective barrier against infection by secreting natural oils, such as sebum not only soften skin, but also maintain the normal pH balance to inhibit bacterial and fungal growth.
- NS 8 Heel Balm is an intensive moisturising complex which contains Natural Moisturising Factors which are more easily absorbed and therefore more effective.
NS 8 Heel Balm Complex is the best choice for feet and heels affected by diabetes.
