Buying the right type of shoes is important for our entire well-being. Most people are not aware why their backs ache, or have headaches, and/or the footsie are in pain, advice: check your shoes! Do they fit? Do they offer good support? Do you need new ones? Etc…
When you decide to make a new purchase, pick several styles, try them before you buy them, if they don’t feel right, do not buy them! Don’t believe the sales person because they cannot stretch the shoes out!!! How can they possibly know what feels or doesn’t feel right to your feet? They can’t …. so do yourself and feet a favor, move on to the next pair.
This is a common problem, especially due to job requirements of standing for long periods of time. How about your own private Stone Foot Massage? Find a flat stone, place it in the microwave for a minute, make sure is not too hot, then massage the bottom of your feet and between the toes, until the aches subside. Try it, let me know what you think!
Epsom salt and a few drops of eucalyptus oil work wonders on tired feet, simply soak them and relax your mind! Essential oils stimulate blood flow and salts aid your body release lactic acid.
This is common in kids, their toes hit the top of the tennis shoe, resulting in a bruise beneath the nail. Keep toenails trimmed and groomed, if the problem continues, get a pair of shoes with a bigger toe area.
Pesky ingrown toenails are prevalent in our society, if frequent and bothersome medical advice is recommended, however you can begin at home by cutting nails straight across. Soak your foot in warm water, once the nail is soft, slip a tiny piece of cotton under the area, if becomes infected, please see your doctor.
How many times have you walked by these big bargain tables in departments stores, drugstores, or grocery stores? Do you ever check out these items? Well … you should! Sometimes we say to ourselves “I’ll do it on the way out!” but most of the times we forget, so from now on, stop, dig and find! The skin care industry is growing each day, there are many small european companies entering the market, look for Scandinavian, French, German, or Italian products; you can look amazing at the fraction of the cost!
