Now not every person has the time and the money to go to a salon every single week for a pedicure. If you do have the money that’s great but, what if you don’t have the money? Or the time?
Here’s are a few tips to keep your feet healthy at home.
1. Keep your feet clean and dry
When you take a bath or shower scrub those feet. Leaving bacteria and dirt from your day can cause fungal infections. Always dry your feet well when getting out of the shower. Fungus lives off of moisture so leaving your feet wet is also another way to get that fungus that you don’t want.
2. Examine your feet for problems
Always keep a lookout for anything out of the ordinary on your feet. When drying off your feet after a shower look for scaling on the soles of your feet. And also in between your toes for peeling areas this could mean athletes foot. Take a good long look at your nails. Nail discoloration could mean foot fungus. If you have diabetes you will have to have a foot inspection problem everyday since you have a higher risk of foot sores and infections.
3. Cut your toenails properly
Just because your toenails are growing doesn’t mean you go willy nilly with the clippers and cut whatever you want. Cut your nails straight across and try to avoid near the edges and the skin this can cause painful ingrown nails.
4.Protect your feet
Try to wear shower shoes to the gym, school locker rooms and even the pool. These are breeding ground for foot fungus.
5. See a doctor
If you see a problem that consists like swelling, redness or discoloration. See a doctor do not try to treat it yourself this might make the problem worse. See a podiatric physician they can help with all your foot problems!
