How to have a set of Fab Feet for Summer

How to have a set of Fab Feet for Summer

  1. Smooth it out – use a pumice stone or a foot file on dry not wet skin you will remove more callus this way.
  2. Moisturise Daily – there are now a number of new great vegan and healthy emoillents to choose from.
  3. Fight Fungus – washing socks at high temperatures and changing socks even a couple of times a day if needs be.  Try to never wear the same pair of trainers the next day, this allows for a general healthier foot environment.
  4. Wear Sun Screen, moles can become malignant on feet too.
  5. Get support – where indicated foot support some as custom made orthotics can not only support foot function but reduce any future problems.
  6. As we age toenails thicken and / or can become more brittle. They are also more susceptible to fungus – it is a good idea to at times try to not paint toenails and keep feet in breathable light materials.  If  toenails are painted try to use nail varnishes free of formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate also an alcohol free polish remover is preferable. Use something such as a vitamin E oil over the entire nail.

The 5 Top Tips for wearing High Heels

The 5 Top Tips for wearing High Heels

Although we are a high heel loving nation we should try to think about how we choose our high heels and what comes with it (blisters, nail trauma, calluses, foot and back pain – phew!), but that aside you should be able to push your own thumb at the top part of the shoe without feeling your big toe.

  1. Use your high heels on special occasions so that we limit them to events where we really want to glam up not just to pop out to the shops for instance.
  2. Ideally keep heels lower than 4cm where possible and the thicker the heel the broader the circumference so better for your balance.
  3. Taking smaller steps will reduce any possible ankle injuries and the potential for tripping up!
  4. Making sure your high heels fit you properly and are not too small is key.
  5. High heels can shorten your calf muscles be sure to take a thorough stretch.  Anything from 3-5 repetitions, holding each stretch for up to 20-30 seconds alternating the left and right calf.
