5 Tips to Get Your Feet Summer - Ready
After spending the winter in boots, your feet need to be rejuvenated to get them summer-ready. If you are planning a beach vacation sometime soon and you think your feet need some pampering before they can strap on those beach sandals, you need not worry. With these five tips, your feet will be ready for the forthcoming sunnier weather.
Check Your Feet: After their long winter hibernation, your feet need to be given a thorough check to spot foot problems like corns and calluses, discolored nails, etc. Since you won’t want your feet to be covered up all summer, you should seek a podiatrist’s advice as soon as you notice any foot problem. Remember not to neglect them or leave them unattended. Else, they may become more serious and cause a lot of trouble in the future.
Check Nail Health and Trim Your Nails: Since closed shoes are an ideal breeding ground for fungus, check your toenails for fungal nail infections. If you feel there are signs of a fungal infection, visit your foot doctor immediately. Don’t opt for over-the-counter treatments as they may not be the proper remedy for your condition. In case your nails seem healthy, cut them straight across with a clean toenail clipper. Avoid having rounded toenails because they may cause painful ingrown toenails.
Get a Relaxing Foot Soak: Nothing pampers your feet like a relaxing foot soak, especially after a long, tiring day at work. Soaking your feet would also help reduce swelling, if any, and prevent infection in case you have blisters or cuts around your toenails or on other areas of your feet. Other than softening your skin, a relaxing foot soak would also make exfoliating your feet easier.
