Love is in the air, folks! And it’s time to love your feet this Valentine’s because let’s face it, they do a lot of heavy lifting (literally) for us. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect opportunity to show your feet some TLC and get them ready for the summer sun.
Playing footsies under the table this Valentine’s?
So, you’ve got a romantic dinner planned with your significant other, and you’re thinking about playing footsies under the table? Well, make sure your feet look good when they finally come out of hiding! No one wants to see rough, dry skin or thick toenails.
No one wants to have smelly, dry, or cracked feet during a romantic dinner, yet these are some of the common foot conditions that make feet less appealing. And let’s be honest, there’s nothing less romantic than having your partner pull their feet back because they’re embarrassed by their appearance. That’s why, this Valentine’s Day, it’s time to show your feet some love and make sure they’re in tip-top condition.
Its time to stop ignoring your feet!
When was the last time you gave your feet a good once-over? Regular inspections can help you spot any changes in appearance that might signal the start of issues like bunions or hammertoes. And the earlier you catch them, the easier they are to treat.
One of the most common foot conditions is fungal nail infection, which is caused by a fungus that thrives in warm, moist environments. Symptoms include yellowing of the nail and if left untreated the nail can become thickened and eventually brittle, read our blog on fungal nail infection for more information
Another sometimes embarrassing foot condition is Athletes foot which is caused by a fungal infection to the skin. Symptoms include itching, redness, and flaking skin. To prevent this, make sure to keep your feet clean and dry, and avoid wearing tight, synthetic shoes that trap moisture. If you already have Athlete’s foot then try Fungi Foam today. FungiFoam Antifungal successfully treats and prevents Athlete’s Foot and Ringworm while regenerating the skin to look healthy again.
Another common foot condition is dry skin, which can lead to rough, cracked feet. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including harsh soaps, hot showers, and a lack of moisture. To prevent dry skin, use a mild soap, apply moisturizer to your feet daily, and make sure to hydrate from the inside out by drinking plenty of water.
Corns and calluses are also common issue, especially for those who wear tight or poorly fitting shoes. These thick, rough patches of skin form to protect feet from friction and pressure, but they can also be painful and unattractive. To prevent corns and calluses, make sure to wear comfortable shoes that fit properly and use a pumice stone or foot file to gently remove dead skin.
Finally, if you’re suffering from foot odour, don’t worry, you’re not alone! Foot odour is caused by bacteria that thrive in warm, moist environments, such as shoes and socks. Using Clean Sweep is a great way to kill the odour-causing bacteria in your shoes.
Use Copper Socks which help keep the bacteria at bay during the day and don’t forget to change them every day!!
Alternate your shoes to give them time to air out, and use Gehwol Fusskraft Herbal Lotion to cool and refresh your feet.
