Tips for foot health

  • Do not wear tight shoes.
  • Do not share your pedicure supplies with others.
  • Do not cut calluses with scissors.
  • Do not use nail polish all the time. Let your nails breathe once in a while.
  • Do not deal with ingrown nails yourself.
  • Exfoliate.

Foot care at home: Get a pedicure

If you are going to do foot care at home, there are a few important points to consider about pedicure. Start by thoroughly cleaning the nail polish on your nails. You can try waiting a few days before applying new nail polish. This will allow your nails to breathe. Especially if you have color changes on your nails caused by colored nail polish, wait a few days before applying new nail polish.

Soak your feet in water for 10-15 minutes. In the meantime, you can add aramotherapy oil or bath salt to the bucket you use. Thus, your feet will soften and your process of removing dead skin will be easier. Make sure that the water you use is not too hot.

Apply pumice stone to your softened feet, heels and calluses on the sides. Pumice stone helps to exfoliate dead skin, soften dry areas and remove heel cracks. Instead of cutting the calluses between your toes, use callus tape for a few days.

Now you can take care of your nails. If they're too long you can cut them off or shorten them with a rasp. Be careful when cutting small nails, which we call hangnails. Cutting the cuticles carries the risk of injury and bleeding, and also causes the spread of bacteria and fungi. So try to push your cuticles only.

Foot care at home: Moisturize

After all this is over, apply a moisturizer by massaging your feet. If your heels are very dry and cracked, you may want to see a podiatrist or dermatologist for a prescription treatment. If the situation isn't that bad, there are plenty of moisturizing products to choose from.

Foot care at home: Massage

When applying lotion to your feet, you should gently massage and stretch the tendons in the toe joints and arch of the foot. This relaxes and loosens not only the skin of the feet, but also your muscles. After applying the lotion, you can wear a pair of socks or wrap your feet in a clear wrap for an hour or two. Known as occlusive therapy, this method allows the lotion to be absorbed better. This is a huge plus if you have dry, flaky feet.

Foot care at home:  Choosing shoes and socks is important

Choosing shoes and socks is also an important issue when it comes to foot care at home. Did you know that most people have one foot slightly larger than the other? Make sure that the shoes you buy fit your feet perfectly.

  • It is important that the heel fits snugly to the sole of the shoe.
  • Make sure your toes are not bent and fit the shoe properly.
  • Having a half-millimeter gap between your longest toe and the shoe is important for you to move comfortably.
  • When you try on shoes, walk a little and make sure your feet don't slip.

Choosing socks made of cotton and natural materials will help your feet breathe and you can prevent sweating.

Make sure to ventilate your shoes after you take them off at the end of the day, so you avoid bad odors. Of course, don't forget to keep your feet clean as well. Make sure to wash your shoes and socks after taking them off.

Bonus Tip: If you have pain in the soles of your feet, place a tennis ball under your feet and try moving it back and forth from where you are sitting.
