By forgoing socks, donning flip-flops, or simply going barefoot, Summer was the time to free our feet from their year-long captivity without repercussion. If you’ve been especially lucky, you’ve only had to sheath your soles a handful of times since May. However, now that Labor Day has come and gone, you’re probably inclined to stick your feet back into a pair of closed toed shoes. Nonetheless, if you take a little time to care for your feet before they go back into seasonal hibernation, they’ll be healthier come spring. Check out these footcare tips to make sure that your dogs aren’t barking this fall –
Scrub Your Feet
Throughout the Summer months you’ve probably developed some dry patches on your feet. Scrub them down with a pumice stone once or twice a week for a few weeks and your feet should return to their softer condition.
Find a foot moisturizer you prefer, and simply rub your feet down with it when you get out of the shower.
Trim Your Nails
Use a clipper to trim away any excess or cracked nails. If you notice any weird discoloration, apply an antifungal (you should be able to find one at your local pharmacy).
Get a Pedicure
If you are feeling too lazy to do any of the steps mentioned above. Go in for a pedicure and let the pros take care of it for you. Sometimes we deserve to be spoiled…
Summer was fun, but Fall is here. Make sure your feet know that, as well.
