With the official start of summer being right around the corner that means open toe shoe season and more outdoor activities. Nobody wants to think about having to spend their summer with unsightly feet. Today we’re here with easy foot care tips to help you get rid of ornery foot problems. This summer can finally be a carefree summer!

Easy Foot Fix Solutions

Foot pain can be surface level and entirely fixable. From corns and calluses to just plain old ugly toenails we have the foot care tips in order to get your feet in tip top shape.

Corns

These are thickened areas that are similar to calluses but have a hard center surrounded by inflamed skin found on the tops of feet or between toes. They can be treated with different types of medicated products that contain salicylic acid to dissolve the protein that makes up the dead layer of skin.

Calluses

These are generally inflamed areas that turn into thickened dead skin and can become painful because of excessive rubbing or pressure from wearing shoes that don’t fit properly. They can be found in weight bearing areas on your feet and treated the same way as corns.

Dry Feet

Pumice stones are your new best friends. You can either keep one in the shower to use each time you soap up or set a bit of time aside to soak your feet in soapy warm water for 20 minutes or so and then use the pumice stone. Afterwards you should apply lotion and then put on a pair of clean cotton socks to wear overnight so that the moisture is locked in and will be absorbed. Our top choice for foot care is of the Soleus Foot Care Kits.

Toenail Fungus

This starts as small spots under the nail and then escalates to a discoloring, thickening and even crumbling of the toenail. You can try some at-home remedies like rubbing tea tree oil on the affected nail or create an apple cider vinegar mixture that also helps with the smelly factor.

Pedicure Principles

Pedicures are a great method of foot care if you take the proper precautions and can help out with dry skin or alleviate pain temporarily. Who doesn’t love a good pedicure? Just make sure if you have any sore spots to alert the nail tech so they don’t cause you any additional pain.
A common question is, “ can I still get a pedicure even if I have toenail fungus?”

Although there is no law in place it’s common courtesy to avoid getting professional pedicures because you don’t want to risk passing your fungus onto others. It’s better to get your own pedicure tools and set up a mini spa all from the comfort of your living room. This will help to achieve a fungus free summer and temporarily help out any associated foot pain too.
