5 Ways to Keep your Feet Healthy this Winter

Keeping Your Feet Healthy in Winter

Before you know it, it will be time to bring out the winter coats and snow boots. You may think it is not important to keep your feet healthy in the winter months since your feet are hidden in your shoes, but it’s just as important to keep up with your feet in the winter time as it is in the summer.

1) Got Dry, Dry, Dry Skin?!
Most people tend to get extreme dry skin during the colder months. Seasonal eczema can irritate your cuticles, toes, and heels. One way to prevent this is to keep up with your regular pedicure. This will help remove dead skin and help keep your feet moisturized. Want to also maintain your feet at home between pedicures? Try the Healthy Feet Duo Kit by Gilden Tree featuring their delicious smelling foot scrub and foot cream. Using the foot scrub in the shower once a week will help keep your heals soft. It is recommended to use the foot cream at least every other night with cotton socks to help lock in moisture, and keep those tootsies warm during those chilly nights!

2) Cure those winter blues!
The days are getting shorter and the sun is getting lower. As winter is near, the easier it is to get those gloomy feelings. What better way to cure the seasonal woes than with a pedicure? You’ll leave feeling rejuvenated with soft, clean feet. Still want to wear polish in the wintertime? Pedi Savers are a great way to keep your feet warm and lock in moisture after your pedicure. These toeless socks make it possible to leave in flip-flops without your feet being bare.

3) Keep yourself and your feet warm!

Soaking your feet in warm water will not only help soften that dry dead skin, but will also help warm those cold feet. Have extra cold feet and dry skin? Upgrade to a Spa Pedicure for only $10 dollars more and receive a foot mask with a hot towel treatment. This will help with cracked filled heels and add moisture into the feet.

4) A good pair of winter shoes!
Another thing you can do to keep your feet healthy in the wintertime is investing in a good pair of winter shoes. The important thing to look for in a pair of winter shoes is a good fit. Make sure that the shoe size is comfortable and can fit thick socks. Also, look for slip or water proof soles with a good arch support.

5) Keep those toes stretched at home.
The foot massage you receive during your pedicure will help relieve any aches or pains from the cold, but it is also important to keep it up at home. One easy way to keep your feet more flexible is to walk barefoot at home. This will help the arch of your foot naturally stabilize as well as balance other points in the foot. Another easy way to keep your toes and feet flexible is to place your fingers between your toes and rotate them in a circular motion. Stretching your lower legs and feet during the winter will help prevent aches, pains, and stiffness due to the cold the weather.
