Our feet are one of the most strained and used part of our bodies. We walk thousands of miles and put a lot of pressure on them in our lifetime, yet we often neglect them. Taking proper care of our feet is very important and simple. Here’s a few tips:
Wash feet daily: use mild or antibacterial soap, rinse off and dry thoroughly.
Moisturize: apply a foot cream daily to hydrate skin and stop heels from cracking. Avoid using too much moisturizer in the area between toes as it can lead to infection because a moist environment is ideal for fungus.
Use sunscreen: if you’re going to wear sandals or flip flops, then you must apply sunscreen to your feet to avoid UV damage.
Remove hardened skin: this will not only make your skin soft and supple, but will also avoid hardened skin to eventually crack. To remove it, use a pumice stone on the side of your heels.
Trim nails: trim them straight across and don’t cut them too short esp at the corners or they may dig into the skin and become ingrown. If that happens, go to a doctor.
Shoes: always wear shoes that fit. Also, vary the height of the heels to keep you calf muscles flexible.
