3 Ways to Take Better Care of Your Feet


It can be all too easy to take your feet for granted. After all, they are always there without a thought to take you from point A to point B. That being said, have you ever actually considered just how much wear and tear your feet go through on a regular basis? Especially if you are an athlete or a particularly active individual, your feet can suffer a great deal under the demands that you place on them. 

If you feel that it is time to start giving your feet the TLC they deserve, here are three ways that you can take better care of your feet.

1. Get the Right Gear

Socks and shoes are staples in your wardrobe, but how much thought do you really give to the things you put on your feet in regard to their effect on your feet? Many people shop for shoes and socks on a purely aesthetic basis making sure that they have the latest looks in footwear in their closets. At the very most, you might have a collection of comfortable socks that you like to wear when you are getting a sweat on at the gym.

However, there is so much more that you could be doing for your feet when it comes to the footwear you opt for. Running shoes, for instance, shouldn’t be purchased solely because you like the look and price. Rather, you should invest in a pair of running shoes that suit your particular feet the best so that you can have optimal support during your workouts. Moreover, A quality pair of compression socks can help aid recovery and improve circulation in your feet. They can even help alleviate the pain of certain conditions like plantar fasciitis

2. Keep Them Clean

Your feet are up against quite a bit throughout the day. However, by not keeping your feet as clean as you should, you are leaving them susceptible to things like fungal infections. Common infections include athlete’s foot, an infection that can affect the skin on your feet. Your toes aren’t immune to such ailments either as toenail fungus can affect those who aren’t taking the best care of their feet.

Make sure that you wash and dry your feet thoroughly every day and that you allow your shoes, especially your athletic footwear, to air out and dry properly before you wear them again. Change your socks frequently and be on the lookout for early signs of infections. It can be easier to treat such infections the earlier you catch them.

3. Give Them a Break

Sometimes, the best way to take care of your feet is to give them a much-needed break. If you are able to, try to elevate your feet for a few minutes every day. Not only does this take all weight and pressure off your feet for a little while, but it also improves blood flow and circulation to your legs and feet.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
