How to Take Care of Your Feet

1. Smooth it out

Soak your feet in water for 10-15 mins and use a pumice stone to soften skin. Moisturising foot scrubs also help remove dead skin. Finish with foot cream or a cream containing shea butter.

2. Moisturise

Try some medicated heel pads to soften your calluses while you walk. After you’ve exfoliated the calluses, use a heavy cream to moisturize tough skin on your heel. Look for creams containing petrolatum.

3. Fight Fungus

Look for a medicated powder or spray if you have sweaty feet. Powders usually contain aluminum chloride hexahydrate to help keep feet dry. If you have dry feet, look for an antifungal lotion.

Dark and damp conditions let the funguses that cause athlete’s foot flourish. Basic good foot hygiene is the best way to prevent fungal infections. Wash your feet frequently and dry them thoroughly, especially between your toes. Wear fresh socks daily.

4. Wear Sunscreen

Apply to tops of feet - use SPF 30 and upwards.

5. Get Support

Standing for a long time can make your feet sore. Wearing insoles can help make shoes more comfortable.
