GIVE YOUR FEET A TREAT - by Editor

Without doubt, your feet are the most active part of your body, even more than your hands. In fact most of the time they are definitely overworked. Especially in today's day and age, the big metros are so widespread that one has to cover long distances to get from one place to the next. Even if you have a car and are in the driver's seat, you know how tiring driving can be. Life is just not easy anymore.

In this scenario, what do you do for your feet A pedicure once a month is not enough. You need to take care almost on a daily basis. E.g. simply relaxing your feet for ten minutes in a bucket of hot water can do wonders for that aching tired feeling. You may also add a little salt to the bucket for better results. Epsom salt is a good remedy for a strained ligament or a muscle pull. A footbath is also an excellent way to restore circulation in case you feel numb or cold.

What do you do about those painful corns

Do you have patches of hard skin, bunions or corns Just in case you do, here is a word of advice. Never, ever handle these problems by yourself. Because seemingly simple problems tend to worsen if handled in the wrong way. Always consult your doctor or a chiropodist and get the right advice.

Until you get to the chiropodist, you can get some relief for a painful corn by using a cornpad or a cottonwool dressing to protect that area from pressure. It would also be a good idea to use a hand and body lotion on your feet regularly in order to prevent scaly skin or help heal small patches that have started forming.

Do you have chilblains

People in countries with very cold winters often face the problem of chilblains. So it is best to dress as warmly as possible in such cases. But you should avoid wearing very tight stockings, shoes or boots as these are extremely constricting. You could try using a good ointment that is available in the market for a little relief. But do consult your doctor or chiropodist for professional advice. It is quite possible that your body is lacking calcium or vitamin D. Whatever it is, your doctor is the best guide.

Ingrown toenails, athlete's foot or verrucas are other similar problems that require a doctor's attention. So it would be worth taking an appointment at least once a year to keep your feet in the best of health. A simple tip to prevent ingrown toenails would be to cut them carefully. The right way is to cut them straight across without clipping off the corners and then bevel with an emery board.

Take time to pick out the right shoes

Are you ruled by what is in fashion or are you the type who emphasizes comfort. A good combination would be ideal. But it does not always happen that way. Sometimes shoes that look good are not always good to your feet. So choose your shoes carefully and pick only the best quality.

Firstly, check out the fit around the heel. If it is not right, it will cause unnecessary strain and fatigue. Next see that there are no awkward inner seams that rub the foot the wrong way and cause calluses and corns. Comfort should be the priority. Make sure that the shoe is the right size. If it is a size bigger, you could get sloppy and cause your ankles to weaken.

Always change your shoes as frequently as possible and vary the size of the heel. If you constantly live in high heels, you might strain your calves and your back in the long run. Also do not live in soft slippers continuously as they offer minimum support to your feet.

If you like wearing stockings, always buy the correct size. Very tight ones would hurt your toes and be very constricting. Always change them daily and use foot powder or talcum powder between your toes to avoid any problems.

Exercise is good for your feet

You go for a walk every other day and you probably indulge in an exercise routine. It is time to include a few for your feet so that they remain flexible and carry you all your life.

Remove your slippers and sit in a chair. Now press your toes down hard on the floor as if making knuckles with your toes. But do not let them curl under. Relax and repeat a few times.
Sit on the edge of a chair with your heels resting on the floor. Spread the toes wide and then relax them. Repeat 10 times.

Simple home remedies

Soak feet for 10 minutes in warm water to which salt has been added. Remove and scrub dry, especially between the toes. This is the easiest way to relax tired feet. In the case of a sprain add Epsom salt to the water for best results.
Alternatively add a shampoo to warm water and soak your feet for 10 minutes. This will also improve the texture of the toenails.
Mix a few drops of lemon juice in vaseline and apply gently on cracked heels.
Scrub heels with a pumice stone while bathing.
Use a good hand and body lotion on your feet too.

If you look after your feet, they will look out for you.
