Do your feet work hard for you, literally going the extra mile?
Whether it is just day to day wear and tear on your feet or using them to propel you forward in your favorite sport, your feet really do need some regular care and attention.
There is a whole host of conditions that can affect your feet including: painful blisters; athletes foot; cracked heels; nail fungus; plantar warts; or ingrown toenails. You can find out more about these conditions from our earlier post
, including how to treat most of them with our own healing treatments.
But it is not just about treatment...
Protection is important too
- Keep your feet dry – and always try to avoid wearing wet shoes while changing your socks once or twice a day at least.
- Try to wear protective footwear in extreme temperatures, making sure that you buy shoes that fit properly.
- While it is not always advisable to walk barefoot for long periods, we are great believers that some barefoot is beneficial, letting your feet breathe. Earthing or grounding is the name given to the habit of going barefoot and something for you to try – weather permitting.
- Consider treating your feet to a foot bath by filling a bowl with warm to hot water to which you can add spices such as a teaspoon each of cayenne, cinnamon and ginger or a few drops each of some essential oils.
- Give you feet a really good soak until they are nicely softened. Then use a pumice stone or nail brush to scrub away all that dead skin. When completely clear, rinse off and dry well.
- Then treat your feet to a thorough massage paying particular attention to the arch of the foot. Massage each toe, making sure to press the points around the heel. Use a hydrating moisturizer for your massage.
- Trim your toe nails while they are soft and warm, cutting straight across the top of the nail in a neat line. Watch out for any symptoms of the nail fungus mentioned above.
- In cold weather and to improve circulation, you can add a dash of cayenne to your foot moisturizer or a sprinkling of mustard powder into your socks for added warmth.
