Inspect Your Feet Regularly
One of the most important parts of maintaining healthy feet is regularly inspecting them and looking them over. Changes in color, texture or appearance could be a sign that you need to improve your maintenance, hygiene or even see a medical professional.
Improve Foot Hygiene
Did you know many foot conditions can be avoided with proper hygiene? Always make sure you are washing and drying your entire foot, including between each toe. Improperly cleaned feet can result in bacterial infections. According to the MayoClinic, leftover moisture can actually increase the likelihood of fungal infections.
Hydrate Foot Skin
Dry, cracked, damaged skin can actually be the perfect environment for complications. We recommend moisturizing and hydrating your feet on a daily basis. Bunion Bootie even offers essential oils and balms that can be the perfect option and provide some relief from any uncomfortable symptoms.
Buy Proper Fitting Shoes
If you’ve been a visitor of Bunion Bootie very long, you’ve probably seen us talk about properly fitting shoes a time or two… When you wear shoes that do not fit properly, it actually puts pressure on the toes, eventually leading to toe deformities such as bunions and even bunionettes.
Exercise can be beneficial for healthy feet in a few ways. Regular exercise can actually stretch the foot, workout the muscles and get blood flowing properly. Exercise can also help to reduce someone’s weight, allowing the feet to carry less with each step.
As mentioned above, excess moisture can actually lead to fungal infections of the foot. According to WebMD, when selecting your shoes for the day, try to alternate so you are not wearing the same pear every day and your pair from the previous day can dry completely.
