You just celebrated Labor Day, so that means fall’s coming soon. Aside from obvious measures, you probably don’t think about your feet too much as the air cools down.
How do you prep your feet for the coming fall weather? Here’s what you should consider:
Rub Your Hard Skin Patches Down
Going without shoes and hanging out on the beach, or even just walking around your yard, leads to your feet becoming calloused and hard. That works well during the warmer summer months. However, it leaves your feet scaly and unattractive when winter comes.
The remedy is simple and fast: take a pumice stone and some elbow grease, and rub the harder, scaly skin down until your skin feels and looks the way you want. It only takes 5 minutes.
Moisturize to Soften Your Skin Even More
Have peeling and cracked skin on your heels and foot soles? Use a heavy-duty moisturizer to make them as soft as a baby’s skin again.
For the best effect, do this when you step out of the shower. However, make sure you don’t slip and fall.
Trim Your Nails
Besides your skin, when was the last time you trimmed your toenails? Remember to clip and file your toenails.
If you notice any unusual colors below your toenails, consider seeing a doctor to learn what’s going on and the fastest cure.
Consider Coconut Oil for Deep Conditioning
Thought you were done with your foot care, didn’t you? Well, as the air gets drier during fall and eventually winter, your feet need hydration to be at their best and most attractive.
Apply coconut oil to give your feet deep hydration.
Keep Wearing Sunscreen
Here in sunny and warm Texas, our version of fall is actually more like a continuation of summer in many states. In these parts, keep wearing sunscreen on the top of your feet. Make sure it’s at least SPF 30, and don’t forget to apply it even when you wear sandals that leave your feet exposed to the sun.
As you can see, fall foot care doesn’t take a lot of work. You just have to remember a few small things. So keep them in mind to keep your feet looking their best!
