While the summer months were great for keeping the feet free in open air, it is necessary to take the appropriate measures to prep feet and give them that everyday foot care for the fall season. Before shoving your feet into a pair of boots this season, make sure to rid of cracked heels and keep them moisturized. Make sure your nails are trimmed and clean; if they appear to be unnatural or you just don’t want to take care of that ingrown toenail, make sure to schedule an appointment with your podiatrist for the best care.
Every day foot care is important no matter what season we are in. For more information about everyday foot care, consult with Dr. Howard Robins of The Healing Center. Our doctorwill provide you with the foot- and ankle information you seek.
Every Day 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. After all, 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 example.
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.
Also, 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.
