Read our 5 top tips for healthy happy feet :
Wash your feet daily with warm, soapy water. Avoid soaking to preserve natural oils.
Dry your feet completely, especially between the toes, to prevent fungal infections like athlete’s foot.
Trim your toenails regularly; try to cut straight across and not too short, never cut at an angle, as this can cause ingrown toenails.
To improve circulation, it is recommended to keep your feet warm and engage in some exercise. You can increase blood flow to your feet by wiggling your toes.
Furthermore, flexing your ankle back and forth while wiggling your toes increases blood flow to your foot and ankle area.
Additionally, sitting with your legs straight and making circles with your feet can help in keeping the blood flowing. Lastly, massaging the foot can also increase blood flow in the foot area.
To maintain good foot hygiene, it’s important to change your socks and shoes on a regular basis. Use fresh socks every day and alternate between shoes daily if possible, allowing them at least 24 hours to dry out.
Bacteria thrive in warm and moist conditions, so by alternating your shoes, you can reduce the risk of odours and potential infections.
