~How to Care for Your Foot😍~ Healthy foot care extends beyond a fresh coat of nail polish, and taking care of your feet should be a daily routine effort. So a good foot care routine should be a part of your overall daily plan for health and wellness. Below are some foot care tips for better and healthy feet.👇 -
1. Wash Your Feet Daily
Good foot hygiene starts with keeping them clean, but just getting your feet wet in the shower doesn’t count. Wash your feet regularly and dry them thoroughly to help prevent foot odors and problems related to bacteria and fungus. Take time to wash between each toe with soap. If you have trouble bending over in the shower, use a shower brush with a handle long enough to reach your feet. -
2. Wear Shoes That Fit
Shoes that are too tight can distort the shape of your toes, cause painful foot growths or blisters, and worsen existing foot problems. Don’t wear the same shoes every day. Skipping a day in your favorite shoes will give them more time to air out, which will help prevent foot odor and infections.
If you wear high heels, opt for heels that are two inches or lower with a wide, stable heel base and a wide toe box that doesn’t crowd your toes. -
3. Take Care of Your Toenails
Trim your toenails regularly with a pair of trimmers that follow the natural curve of your nails, and if you paint your toenails, keep an eye on the ingredients in your nail polish. Ingredients in some nail polish and removers can dry out nails and make them brittle.
Avoid ingredients like formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and choose a nail polish remover that doesn’t contain alcohol. -
4. Keep your Foot Moisturize toAvoid Dry, Cracked Feet
Keeping your feet moisturized with foot lotions, especially in winter months, will help prevent the skin on your feet from getting dry and cracked. Over time, dry skin can build up on your feet, particularly on your heels, which looks unsightly and can crack, leading to some serious health concerns. Cracked skin leaves your feet more vulnerable to certain infections.
If you notice a buildup of dry skin on your feet, use a pumice stone to gently exfoliate before using a moisturizer.
