Everyday Techniques for Beautiful Feet

Achieving and maintaining attractive feet requires consistent everyday foot care. Start by washing your feet daily with warm water and mild soap to remove dirt and prevent infections. After washing, thoroughly dry your feet, especially between the toes, to avoid fungal growth. Regularly exfoliate your feet using a pumice stone or foot scrub to remove dead skin cells and keep them smooth. Moisturizing is vital, and it can be helpful to apply a rich foot cream or lotion to keep the skin hydrated and soft. Pay attention to your nails by trimming them straight across to prevent ingrown toenails, and gently push back cuticles for a neat appearance. Wearing comfortable, breathable shoes helps to avoid blisters and calluses, while cotton socks keep feet dry and reduce odor. Finally, give your feet a break by elevating them after a long day to improve circulation and reduce swelling. If you have developed foot conditions from neglecting your feet, it is suggested that you consult a podiatrist who can treat multiple foot conditions.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Darline Kulhan, DPM from Scarsdale Foot Specialists PC. 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.
