Everyday Foot Care
People tend to take care of their bodies, face and hair more than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to, after all we spend almost 80% of the time standing on them! Without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks and activities.
You should be checking your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises, blisters or cuts that you may not have noticed before. For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to any affected areas as needed. Wearing shoes that are proper fitting can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier and more comfortable to walk and do daily activities without any stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or flip flops. Wearing socks with closed-toe shoes is important to ensure that sweat & bacteria do not accumulate inside the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent Athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can assist in absorbing sweat.
Remember, your feet are one of the most used body parts you have, treat them well and they will return the favor!
