Cold, harsh winter temperatures can be tough on not only your feet, but your entire body. Combined with the fact that many people wear thick socks, boots, and basically neglect to take care of their feet during winter months, come spring you wish you’d taken better care when it’s time to break out those feet and toe-baring sandals and other revealing shoes. As a trusted distributor of wholesale spring shoes, we have a few tips to help you get your tootsies in tip-top shape before spring arrives!
First, take time to really wash your feet when you bathe or shower; using a pumice will help remove dead, dry patches and the rough skin often found on heels. Following your shower, massage in a moisturizing foot lotion.
Toenails become dry and weak, just like your fingernails do. To make them as smooth and healthy as possible, moisturize with lotion, and apply cuticle oil each day to ensure the nail bed is hydrated, which will help the health of the nails.
If you usually wear socks during winter months, consider cotton, wool, and other natural fabrics. Synthetic blends can result in sweaty (and stinky) feet!
If you wear heels or other shoes to work that are uncomfortable and have caused calluses or bunions, give your feet a break by wearing flat, comfortable shoes at least two or three days a week. Nothing is more unsightly when wearing sandals than corns and bunions!
Have an occasional Pedi, or do it yourself if you don’t have money in the budget for a professional job. If you do it yourself, soak your feet in warm water so that clipping and shaping your toenails will be easier. Next, use a nail file to gently file the nails smooth. Use a pumice on calluses and rough skin, nudge the cuticles back gently, dry your feet thoroughly, and give them a pampering massage using a quality foot lotion. If you want, finish off with a coat or two of your favorite nail polish.
Start taking care of your feet now, and they’ll look gorgeous enough to show off in all of your most revealing shoes come spring and summer.
