Health Tip: Protect Your Feet from the summer sun
Your feet can take a beating during the summer, notably from the high heat and sun exposure.
The Podiatrist recommends how to protect your tootsies during the hotter months:
- Always wear shoes or sandals, even at the beach or pool. Avoid going barefoot.
- Spread sunscreen over the tops of your feet, your heels and your toes. Reapply after getting out of the water.
- To help reduce swelling in the feet, drink plenty of water throughout the day.
- Frequently stretch, wiggle and flex your legs, toes and feet to help promote circulation.
