To use these, all you have to do is remove each patch from its packaging and affix to the underside of the foot like a plaster, taking care to ensure the pouch with the ingredients is completely touching the skin. You go to bed as normal, removing the patches and disposing of them when you awake. The stickiness of the patch is strong enough to keep it in place all night (even for the most fidgity of people,) but delicate enough to cause none of that horrendous plaster-removal feeling you get with the ugly beige things. When you remove the patch you'll notice that the pouch has turned a dark grey colour, which is supposedly all the toxins that have been removed overnight. Now there's no scientific proof whatsoever that this actually works (and it isn't just sweat,) but it's supposedly based on the ancient practice of Reflexology - whereby your feet are manipulated and cleansed as a route to other areas of the body.
Using the detox patches I didn't feel any different whatseover, but with the sleep-aid patches I did actually seem to get a better night's slumber; I awoke feeling refreshed and as though I'd had a really good quality kip, something I rarely experience without a herbal tea and a natural sleep aid. I'm not going to disgust you with a picture of my used patches, but there was definitely something being removed from the underside of my feet and it seemed to help me sleep better. Realistically you should use these every day for a week to get the proper benefit, but even as a one-off treat they're quite interesting to test... I like to think of these like a face mask for your feet. Something we use out of curioisity and indulgence, rather than targeted skincare relief.
Have you ever tried foot patches? Do you think they actually work?
