Foot and Ankle
Wash your feet every day in warm soapy water. Then rinse them with cool water, dry them properly with a towel (be sure to dry between the fingers) and apply moisturizing cream. Do not limit the application of cream to your legs; Your feet deserve it, too!
Protect them from the sun.
Apply sunscreen on your feet before exposing yourself to the sun, even if you are going to wear sandals. Usually we forget to pay attention to our feet with respect to the rays of the sun, and that is a mistake: the skin of the feet can suffer the consequences like any other zone of our body.
To keep them dry and without unpleasant odors, get used to using talcum powder or foot sprays. Use, if you wish, special design templates in your shoes.
Cut the nails.
Ideally cut your toenails as soon as you leave the bathroom, every 3 or 4 weeks. Cut them straight, not too short, or excuses in the corners. If you overdo it with the scissors, immerse your feet in vinegar diluted with water to remove the swelling.
To eliminate roughness and hardened heel skin, gently exfoliate your feet with pumice. Then apply moisturizer. Before exfoliating, immerse your feet in warm water for 10 minutes to "loosen up" and make it easier to remove rough spots and remains of dead skin. Or you can also immerse them with the home trick that we teach you next.
Do you feel that new shoes stay small or too tight? What you have to do is buy shoes at the end of the day, because at that time the feet are usually more swollen. That way, the shoes that fit well in that instance will be comfortable at any other time.
