Keeping your feet healthy is as simple as taking good care of them. Treat any cracked heels, dry skin, or chipping toenails with some DIY methods. Soak your feet in a warm foot bath for up to 10 minutes. Use a natural foot scrub, such as a pumice or an exfoliant, to rub away any dead skin. You can also use the pumice stone or a file to smooth away any hard skin around your heels or the balls of your feet. After drying your feet, moisturize and make a habit of trimming your toenails. Refrain from cutting them too short or cutting them in a round shape to prevent ingrown toenails.

Regardless of season or weather, everyday foot care should be practiced year round. For more information about everyday foot care, consult with one of our podiatrists of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Our doctors will attend to all of your foot and ankle needs.

Everyday Foot Care

Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. After all, without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks. It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before, for example.

For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops.

Also, wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.

If you have any questions, please contact our offices located in San Leandro, Pleasanton, and Los Gatos, CA. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot care needs.
