8 Foot Health Tips
Healthy feet are one of the most important signs of a healthy body. Preventative foot care is essential as you age and can go a long way in keeping your feet healthy. From keeping feet clean and stretching massage exercises to wearing socks and shoe protection, these 8 helpful tips can help keep your feet healthy and pain-free.
Foot cleansing and exfoliation
Wash your feet carefully with warm, soapy water, especially between your toes. Using a foot scrubber, gently scrub your feet to reduce keratin deposition to keep skin smooth. Gently massage feet and calves, then rinse thoroughly.
Trim your nails in time
When trimming your nails with clippers, avoid rounding them, as this can cause ingrown toenails over time, causing pain. Use a nail file to smooth any rough edges after trimming.
Ice your feet
Ice your feet can reduce soreness and help your feet relax after exercising or at the end of the day. By filling a plastic bag with ice cubes or rolling your feet on a frozen water bottle. Try applying ice to the affected area for 5 to 15 minutes several times a day to help reduce inflammation.
After daily cleansing, apply on the feet and also use less moisturizing cream on the skin between the toes. If your skin has become dry, put on socks after the cream to help lock in moisture. Doing this before bed can help so the moisturizer can stay on the skin undisturbed throughout the night.
Foot flexion and massage
Gently bend one foot with your hands and gently pull your toes back. Hold for a few seconds, then massage the soles of your feet, 5 times on both feet, or use the massage ball to roll back and forth on the soles of your feet.
Choose the right shoes
Your shoes should provide adequate cushioning and support for daily activities to help you prevent and reduce various foot symptoms. Just like the WALKHERO shoe with patented Foot-Care™, It has all the comfort you need and all-around protection for your feet.
Wear moisture-wicking socks
Excessive sweating can lead to odors and bacteria, so wearing wicking socks will dry your feet faster. The WALKHERO x Paplus compression socks are made of synthetic fabric that wicks excess moisture away from the skin.
Regular foot exams
Foot problems are often easily overlooked. If you have uncomfortable symptoms, please go to the podiatric clinic for examination in time. It's important to keep abreast of your symptoms and choose the right footwear to prevent them from getting worse.
