Effective Tips on How to Care For Your Feet

Tuesday, 24 January 2023 00:00

The average person takes hundreds of steps every day, which adds up to thousands per week. This can be one reason why people have achy feet at the end of the day, and practicing everyday foot care techniques may help to alleviate the discomfort. This can begin by washing and drying the feet thoroughly, followed by applying a good moisturizer on them. Many people like to sprinkle powder on their feet, which can help to keep the feet fresh by absorbing excess moisture. It is important to keep the toenails trimmed, and this is properly done by cutting them straight across instead of in a curved fashion. This is an effective way of preventing ingrown toenails from developing. Wearing shoes that fit correctly is another way of taking care of our feet. It is beneficial to choose shoes that have adequate room for the toes to move freely in, which may be helpful in preventing hammertoe and bunions from forming. If you would like additional information and tips on daily foot care habits, please confer with a podiatrist.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Shaun J. Limon, DPM and Lisa Griffith-Limon, DPM from Limons Foot & Ankle Care. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Everyday Foot Care

Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so 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. Without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks.

It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises 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 the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops. Wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent Athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.
