Our feet take quite a beating all year long. They support our weight, and sometimes then some. We tuck them into shoes that might be to tight or not supportive. Let's face it, we're not always that nice to them. They take a real beating. But summer comes along and we want to take them out for a little air, to let them cool in the water or on the soft grass. Sandals, flip flops and barefoot - that's what summers all about.
Here are a few tips to keep your feet feeling happy and looking their summer best.
Barefoot with Care
It's sooo incredibly tempting to go barefoot everywhere. Grass feels so cushy. You want to be ready to just jump in the pool, so why wear your shoes while around it? It all sounds delightful, but it can also be a problem. Fungus, viruses, splinters, bacteria and more lurk in moist warm areas. Wear supportive, light shoes. Or, at the very least, make sure to wash AND dry your feet well when you come in.
