Recharge Your Feet, R88, stockist details: Dis-Chem, Clicks, leading pharmacies and health shops nationwide, www.rechargeyourlife.co.za

As a diabetic, foot care is of the utmost importance. Poor circulation in the feet and legs is one of the problems facing diabetics, and is characterized by leg pain and leg cramps. If this is not attended to, the result can be chronic ulcers, numbness and in severe cases gangrene, which can necessitate amputation of the affected limb.

Recharge Your Feet is the only Herbal Foot Cream that is specially formulated for Diabetic Feet. It contains herbal extracts and active ingredients that naturally help to alleviate the symptoms associated with diabetic feet; poor circulation, numbness and tingling, changes in skin temperature, swelling and changes in skin colour. 

How to take care of your feet:  

  • Exercise is important to enhance circulation
  • If possible raise your feet when you are sitting down
  • Check your feet every day for swelling, abrasions, red spots
  • Check your feet for ‘cold areas’ (a sign of poor circulation)
  • Check your feet for ‘hot areas’ (a sign of infection)
  • Make sure your “foot hygiene” is of a high standard
  • Dry your feet well after bathing, showering or swimming
  • Apply a good natural cream to the feet every day
  • Wear comfortable shoes that do not pinch the feet or toes
  • Keep toenails trimmed and file sharp edges


Recharge naturally assists with:

  • Poor circulation
  • Fungal infections
  • Cracked heels
  • Dry skin
  • Swelling in legs
  • Restless legs
  • Varicose veins or spider veins.
  • Minor cuts or burns


What makes Recharge Your Feet unique?
Recharge your Feet is a Herbal Foot Cream that uses a natural vegetable oil base instead of a petroleum one. This not only allows the skin to breathe, but it also allows the active ingredients to be absorbed effectively.

Active ingredients:

Recharge Your Feet is a natural herbal cream and does NOT contain alcohol, parabens, petrochemicals, animal products and synthetic fragrances.

The active ingredients in Recharge Your Feet include herbs, essential oils and vitamin A, E & B5 in a completely natural cream base.  These essential oils allow the skin to breathe and do not affect the normal functioning of the skin. As a result the cream is easily absorbed and is more effective than mineral oil based creams and you use less of natural creams per application.
