As the lockdown period continues to extend for another two weeks, it’s an opportunity to practice healthy foot care habits and give your feet a much-deserved break.
Footcare habits are a health investment to make; all it takes is some time and discipline. While many assume that footcare habits need to be practiced late in life, the fact is, the sooner you start the better.
Switch to comfort
The first and foremost step to keeping your feet healthy is by choosing the right footwear. Wearing ill-fitting and uncomfortable shoes have undesirable long term effects on your feet. Experts recommend switching to comfortable shoes and flipflops for a better chance at keeping your feet healthy. Picking well-fitted shoes reduce the risk of feet condition and give you feet ample room for movement. Wearing flipflops, on the other hand, offers unmatched comfort and keeps your feet easy-breezy and comfortable. Choose from our range of men’s flipflops from Stimulus, Paralite Vertex and Vertex Plus. Explore our Solea, Meriva, and Aaram for comfortable women’s footwear.
Keep feet squeaky clean
Wash your feet as often as you can and keep them clean. Using a homemade scrub also ensures that feet stay clean. A mixture of baking soda and lime can do wonders. Cleaning your feet can help ward off fungal infections and undesired odor problems; not only that, clean feet are a sign of good hygiene. Practice washing your feet as soon as you get home from outside and when you are getting ready for bed every night.
Moisturizing your feet and giving them a dose of hydration every now and then reduces scaly skin and dry patches. While hydrating your feet can seem like a daunting task, all it takes is some normal moisturizing cream or some petroleum jelly. Make moisturizing a bedtime ritual and watch your feet turn happy in no time!
Te lockdown can be a tough time for most people, but having a bedtime ritual and a frequent pampering session can help relax and calm your mind. We hope you stay home, stay safe and use this time to improve your feet health with these 3 simple tips.
