Here at Juil we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring. This winter hasn’t been too kind to us in the Midwest, but the tide is starting to change and it appears that spring may finally be upon us. I have gathered a few tips for you to get/keep your feet in great shape when spring officially rolls around.
Wearing thick socks and boots during the winter can lead to the formation of dry patches on your heels. One way to prevent this is by using a nightly foot cream. After the cream has been properly applied, you should buff away the dead skin using a foot file. Regular use of this will mean softer, smoother feet for sandal season.
Running or walking on an indoor treadmill is very different from running or walking outside. If your feet and knees are feeling the burden of a new outdoor running routine, you should consider adding more supportive, cushioned insoles to your regular athletic shoes. There are several companies that offer a wide variety of options, which shape to the contours of your foot. This will help provide support and help to relieve foot, knee and lower back pain.
Ridged/Ingrown Toe Nails:
Improperly fitting footwear can lead to ingrown toenails, which can be quite painful. One solution is to make sure you are trimming your nails every other week. As you keep up this routine, your nails will be able to grow properly and reduce the risk of getting ingrown nails in the future.
Follow these tips and your feet will be ready for spring in no time!
