Essential Guide to Healthy Feet


The average person is supported by their feet several hours per day. Certainly, the feet take a tremendous amount of abuse and daily pressure. People walk on their feet, dance, jump, run, jog, or play sports. Of course, some women manage to nudge their feet into shoes that pinch the toes and punish their heels to look trendy. All this pressure on the feet is unhealthy and will likely cause foot problems down the line.

Dry Healthy Feet
We cover our feet with boots and socks in the winter to keep them toasty and dry. Still, it is sensible to try and steer clear of getting the feet wet during the winter and other times of the year because the end result is a foot fungus. Here is the deal, avoid the issue all together by powdering the feet before slipping on a pair of dry socks, shoes, or or boots.

Moisturize Feet
Certainly, it is important to moisturize your feet too, paying particular attention to the heels and toes. Moisturize your feet at night with a thick, creamy moisturizer that was designed for the feet like Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Cream or Burt's Bees Peppermint Foot lotion. Other suggestions include CeraVe Renewing System, SA Renewing Foot Cream, Udderly Smooth Foot Cream, and Curel Foot Therapy Cream. Place thick cotton socks on your feet afterwards.
