Our feet go through a lot. They are the foundation of our bodies and carry all the weight. That's a lot of pressure! So with that comes a lot of potential for problems. Let's talk about some of the most common ones.
If your feet are itchy, peeling, blistering or cracked, you may have athlete's foot. It usually begins between the 4th and 5th toes and spreads quickly to other areas. It is highly contagious and can spread to other parts of the skin. It is usually caused by wearing damp shoes or walking around barefoot in damp areas. Antifungals can help treat this condition, including tea tree oil, which is found in our Flawless Feet Serum.
If you experience numbness, tingling and pain in your feet you may have diabetic neuropathy. This is caused overtime by elevated blood sugar levels that can damage your nerves, especially those in your extremities. Smoking and drinking alcohol can make it worse. This can also make you more prone to infection so maintaining proper foot care is very important. The Flawless Feet Serum has antimicrobial activity that can help prevent infection.
If you experience pain under your heel that worsens with activity, you may have plantar fasciitis. This is when the ligament under the arch of your feet becomes inflamed. The Flawless Feet Serum has anti-inflammatory properties from ingredients such as lavender, that help with minor aches and pains.
Blisters usually appear after walking or running for a long time, especially if the feet have become sweaty or when wearing ill-fitting shoes. They look like raised fluid-filled pockets. It is best not to burst blisters and to let them resolve on their own. Applying a bandage can provide protection and relief.
If you experience redness, swelling, pain or even discharge around your toes, you may have an ingrown toenail. They are usually caused by wearing shoes that are too tight or too narrow, especially in the front. It can also be caused by not trimming the toenails properly. A part of the toenail can embed in the skin and even cause it to become infected.
Bottomline, foot-care should be part of your daily routine. Life does get in the way sometimes but just keeping your feet clean and wearing proper fitting shoes can help significantly. Also, finding something quick and easy to use, like the Flawelss Feet System, can make it more likely for you to stick to your foot-care routine since you can use it anytime and anywhere.
