5 Simple Ways to Care for Your Feet
by Alesha Wilson
Having two feet is the dream of those who had been born without them or who had lost them at some point. However, for those of us who have had them since we were born, these two feet seem unimportant. Don’t wait for you to lose your feet before you realize how important they are. Start by caring for your feet using these simple steps:
1. Wash your feet regularly.
After going out, make sure that you remove your shoes, let your feet rest, and wash them with lukewarm water. This will help relax the nerves on the feet and also prevent bacteria and dead skin cells from accumulating. Afterwards, wipe them dry using a clean towel.
2. Do not borrow shoes from others.
Borrowing someone else’s shoes is a sure way to have fungal problems. Even though the person you are borrowing from seem to have no problems, who knows whose shoes he/she might have borrowed too. Furthermore, avoid letting others wear your footwear.
3. Buy heel pads to make high heels more comfortable.
There are times when you really need to wear heels for some time. The good news is that you don’t have to walk around in agony throughout the evening. Heel pads enable you to walk with a cushion so that the heels won’t be causing you intolerable pain.
4. Choose the size that fits.
This should be easy enough to understand, but the thing is some people actually buy the wrong size for various reasons. Either they want to make their feet look smaller or they are settling for a smaller size because their size isn’t present. If you think that a few millimeters won’t matter, think again.
5. Moisturize your feet.
Aloe vera has that soothing property that helps relax your feet and hydrates them. You can also apply some lotion to make it smoother.
