As important as it is to use detox foot patches for your feet, it’s also essential to understand the necessary precautions and steps which need to be taken in order to derive the maximum benefit from the foot patch and also to reduce the chances of side effects which may result from improper usage. The initial step which needs to be taken prior to placing the foot patch is to throw away the large sheet of the adhesive piece and thereafter place the foot patch on its center portion. Care should be taken to ensure that the words written on the sachet would face downwards to the adhesive surface.
Thereafter it should be firmly stuck on to the sole of the particular foot. Although the number of hours in which the foot patch should remain on the feet varies from person to person, it should be kept for at least six to twelve hours for best results. Certain individuals however are advised to have it for more than the typical time of twelve hours, therefore they could put on the patch a few hours before they go to sleep and wear them around the house till bedtime.
It’s a common misconception amongst people that the detox foot patches should only be placed on the soles of the feet, even though this area provides the best results, it could also be placed on various other parts of the body as necessary. As most people prefer to use it while they are asleep at night, rather than the day, it’s highly recommended to wear a pair of socks over these pads in order to prevent kicking it off during the night. It also increases the contact between the pads and the feet and thereby improves the absorption capabilities of the pad as well.
It’s also important that one should take the necessary steps in order to ensure that the foot patch is not placed on top of mucous membranes, open wounds, near the eye, or around irritated skin areas. All other areas, other than those mentioned previously, are safe for the detox foot patches to be placed, however, it’s strongly advisable to use band-aids or medical tape for securing the foot patch with the skin, when it is used near surfaces which are prone to be moved frequently or curvy and oily areas.
The benefit which one could obtain from the backing of these patches is that it helps to effectively secure potency and the purity of the ingredients used in the patch as its made using non-foil materials. Another benefit that the potential user of this foot patch could obtain is that it has a highly capable absorption pad through which the necessary substances and fluids could easily pass through safely without causing any harm to the individual. This is also one of the drawbacks which one would get by using an inferior quality foot patch, as the ingredients which it contains would most certainly produce results significantly lesser than that obtained from the high-quality patches.
