Soft Skin With Daily Foot Care

Monday, 01 February 2021 00:00

The feet can be susceptible to receiving inadequate care. Research has indicated the importance of performing everyday foot care techniques because they generally help the appearance and overall well being of the feet. Many patients enjoy soaking their feet in warm water while adding essential oils to the water, followed by using a pumice stone to soften calluses. Ingrown toenails may be prevented when the cuticles are pushed down, and cuticle oil is applied. Soft skin can gradually develop when coconut oil is used on the feet. This is most effective when done before bed, and warm socks are worn while sleeping. For additional information about everyday foot care practices, it is suggested that you speak with a podiatrist who can guide you with correct knowledge.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Paul Haluska, DPM from Mercury Podiatry, Inc. 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.
