How to Practice Everyday Foot Care

Tuesday, 01 August 2023 00:00

The feet are often taken for granted, and they are sometimes a part of the body that gets the least respect. The feet are most likely to get injured from absorbing the body’s weight. They are responsible for various things, including providing us with mobility and balance. Many people wear shoes that do not fit correctly, and part of a good everyday foot care routine is to choose shoes that fit well. The day can begin by washing and drying the feet thoroughly, followed by applying a good moisturizer. It is beneficial to alternate pairs of shoes worn each day, and this can provide an opportunity to air the shoes out. Additionally, limiting the time flip-flops are worn can help the arch of the foot. Women who are pregnant may find their feet become swollen, and relief may be found when the feet are frequently elevated. If you would like additional tips on everyday foot care, it is suggested that you consult a podiatrist who can provide you with useful information.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Jed Wells, DPM from Jed Wells, DPM Foot Specialist. Our doctor 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.
