Ensuring that our feet are healthy is essential to our overall body health. Tips for taking care of your feet include inspecting them on a regular basis for any injuries such as peeling skin, especially if you’re a diabetic patient. Make sure that you wear properly-fitting shoes and that you wear shoes in public places that are prone to bacterial infection, such as locker rooms. When washing your feet, dry and moisturize afterwards. Wear sunblock when going out to places such as the beach. Also remember to maintain a healthy diet and an active exercise routine.

Every day foot care is very important, especially for those that are lacking the proper foot care resources. For more information about everyday foot care, see one of our podiatrists of Greene Podiatry Associates, Inc. Our doctors will treat your heel pain symptoms in addition to other podiatric-related needs.

Every Day 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. After all, 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 example.

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.

Also, 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.
