Tips for Having More Attractive Feet

Professional pedicures are an obvious step to take if you want to have more attractive feet, but sometimes this is not possible. There are routines that can be done at home that an individual can follow to help to ensure their feet are healthy and looking nice  Following these steps for everyday foot care can save you time and money. This can begin with soaking the feet. Adding Epsom salts to warm water can cleanse the feet, soften them, and make the toenails easier to trim. After drying the feet, a foot file or large nail file can be used to file corns or calluses. This can be done gently until the skin feels smoother. Next, the feet can be exfoliated with an appropriate scrub that can remove dead skin cells and soften dry skin. It is important to trim the toenails straight across and smooth the edges with a nail file. This can be followed by moisturizing the feet and completed by polishing your toenails. In performing this process, if you encounter any wounds on your feet or areas of infection, it is suggested to see a podiatrist who can examine your feet and tend to any problem areas.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Michael Schwartzman, DPM from Illinois and Indiana . 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.
