You should give your feet as much care and attention as you do your face. There are a few tips that you can use to maintain healthy feet. One tip is to trim your nails short to avoid having dirt trapped under your nails. When trimming, you should always cut straight across instead of in a rounded shape. Another tip for healthy foot care is to wash your feet with a medicated soap and apply a foot cream immediately after. Drinking water and eating fruits and vegetables can also have a positive impact on the appearance of your feet.
Every day foot care is very important, especially for those that are lacking the proper foot care resources. For more information about everyday foot care, contact Dr. LeKeisha George from Forest Hills Podiatric Medical Care. Dr. George will assist you with all of your podiatric concerns.
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.
