Summer is one of the best times of year. It brings with it great food, plenty of excuses to go out, and of course holidays! Unfortunately, it also brings with it a host of foot care challenges. A lot of people are under the false impression that feet can be left to their own devices, and require no extra care and attention, but this is not the case. To keep your feet looking and feeling great, you need to make sure that you are taking regular care of them – especially in summer.
Don’t Linger with Damp Feet?
Having damp feet creates a perfect breeding ground for the fungi and bacteria that cause skin and nail infections to thrive. When it’s warm, and your feet sweat, or you put shoes on too soon after a paddle, you could be creating a place for any infections that are lurking around. If you do feel that your feet are feeling damp, then try to change that as soon as possible, by changing shoes and socks if you can.
Let your Feet Breathe
During warm weather it’s important not to wear shoes that are too tight or constricting. If your feet don’t get enough airflow, then they can start to sweat a great deal, as well as causing other problems, such as blisters and calluses. Opt for a lighter shoe like a sandal or an espadrille.
The warm, dry weather has a tendency to dry out your skin, and your feet aren’t immune to this. If you don’t make sure to keep your feet nice and moisturized, that dry skin can become irritated and even crack – putting you in danger of infection and cellulitis. The Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Daily Moisturizer contains special ingredients and vitamins to ensure that your feet feel smooth and moisturized for the entire day.
Look after your Feet!
This is the most important tip! It’s all too easy to neglect your feet and assume they’ll just be fine whatever the weather. Just take the time to give them a little care and attention, watch out for any discoloration, bumps or anything else out of the ordinary, for though it may seem like nothing now, it may turn into a real problem later on down the line. Keep on top of any hard skin and calluses by building it into your routine. It doesn’t take long at all to use a product such as the Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File with Diamond Crystals, and just this simple act can go a long way to keeping you comfortable, and your feet looking beautiful all summer long.
