Pedicures at Home

Caring for one’s feet is an important part of one’s daily health routine. However, taking care of your feet doesn’t have to be a boring chore–it can be fun! One step that you might consider taking to make your foot care routine more exciting is giving yourself your own pedicure. There are many steps you might consider incorporating into your pedicure. For example, you might gently remove dead skin on your feet with a pumice stone. You might also gently buff your cuticles on the nails of the feet, remembering that cutting cuticles is best left to a professional. You might then trim the toenails, remembering to cut straight and not too short, as doing otherwise might lead to an ingrown toenail. It is beneficial to finish your pedicure by applying moisturizer to the feet, keeping them supple and hydrated. Contact a podiatrist today for more information about daily foot care.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Tin Quach from Foot Center. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Everyday Foot Care

Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. Without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks.

It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before. For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops. Wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent Athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.
