Did you know it is National Foot Health Awareness Month? Probably not, but that's okay. However, your feet are pretty darn important as they not only give you a reason to buy shoes but also help you, you know, walk. But we do often abuse them with all the wear and tear (we walk an average of 1000 steps a day!) we put on them so here are a few tips for pampering your feet and keeping them in tip top shape.
1. Wash your feet
In the shower your feet don't often get much attention so why not give yourself a little foot bath? Soak them in hot water with a little liquid soap.
This is great after a foot bath and to do during those skin drying winter months.
3. Massage your feet
Massage those feet (it's especially nice if someone does it for you) with that moisturizer.
4. Watch those nails
Clip your toe nails twice a week, but don't cut too deep at the corners as this could lead to ingrown toenails.
5. Don't wear flip-flops and flats all the time
Hey, we all love a good flip-flop and ballet flat but they give our arches no support which does not help preserve our feet.
6. Don't wear heels all the time
Conversely heels will hurt you quite a lot over time as well. They will cause corns, calluses, neuroma of the foot or hammertoes and just general pain all the time. You do want to walk when you are 60 right?
7. Wear protective shoes
Especially if you are doing anything outside and always try to keep your feet dry and clean before putting on shoes. Sneakers are always a good option.
8. Treat yourself to a pedicure
Just make it is a good salon and all the instruments are clean!
9. Put your feet up
And relax! You deserve it!
