Foot care regime for winter- | The Podiatrist and yourfeetnz
It’s easier to protect your feet during winter, but one needs to look after them.
The tips should be followed religiously to get the best results, says The Podiatrist.
Here are the tips:
* Wash feet daily: Wearing socks and closed in shoes all day is when you sweat a lot and so do your feet. This attracts lots of dirt and dust. So, make sure that before going to bed, you wash your feet with tepid water for around 15 minutes- you can use a Gehwol Foot Bath
* Moisturise daily: Use any lotion or foot cream and make it your daily routine to apply it on your feet. But don’t go overboard with moisturiser especially between your toes as it might cause fungal infection.
* Choose comfortable footwear: Give your feet space to breathe by wearing comfortable footwear preferably made of mesh fabric.
* Check between your toes regularly for signs of fungal infections.
See The Podiatrist for any foot care needs.
