Taking good care of your feet through the holidays is a wonderful way to thank them for all the hard work they do. They allow you to stand, walk, run, shop, and dance with often so little thought given to them, unless something malfunctions or becomes painful. Good foot care is a great way to pamper your fabulous feet and can help avoid complications down the road.
Here are some great foot care tips to help you pamper your feet:
- Daily foot check—One of the best ways to avoid problems with your feet is by catching anything abnormal before it has a chance to worsen. This can be accomplished during a daily foot inspection to look for cuts, scrapes, bruises, and ingrown or fungal toenail trouble.
- Keep your feet clean, dry, and moisturized—Carefully wash your feet every day with warm, soapy water and dry carefully. Keep your skin supple and smooth by applying an emollient cream to rough skin.
- Get a pedicure—A great way to pamper your feet for the holidays is with a professional pedicure. Be sure your salon follows good hygiene practices and that all state and local licenses are up to date.
- Wear comfortable shoes—Only wear high heels on special occasions, if necessary, and choose shoes that are comfortable, supportive, and with plenty of room in the toe box for your toes to move around. Avoiding high heels also helps prevent corns and calluses and other toe deformities like hammertoes and bunions.
