Summer is a special time, but it can be extra tough on feet. It’s important to take special care of your feet while you enjoy the pool, beach, and long outdoor walks.
- Put Sunscreen on Your Feet
When your feet are exposed, beware of the damage the sun can do. Because the skin on your feet is not exposed as often as other parts of your body, it can be very sensitive to sunburn and blistering. Unfortunately, we don’t always remember to apply sunscreen to our feet. Wear a sunscreen that provides both UVA and UVB protection, and apply it often.
Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays can increase the risk of skin cancer. Look for a product with one of the following ingredients: ecamsule, avobenzone, oxybenzone, titanium dioxide, sulisobenzone, or zinc oxide.
Ultraviolet B (UVB) rays also are cancer-causing, and these are the rays that cause sunburn. The SPF (which stands for sun protection factor) rate indicates how strong the sun protection is.
- Keep Your Feet Dry
There are a few things to keep in mind that are related to the importance of dry feet.
- Feet can perspire more from summer heat. Damp feet from perspiration can cause bacteria or fungus conditions such as athletes foot.
- For the same reason, try to get out of shoes that get wet at the beach or in a summer rainstorm as quickly as you can. If your feet stay moist for long, you risk skin problems on the sole of the foot and in between toes that can cause callouses.
- Wearing the right socks will reduce perspiration and keep your feet drier. Avoid socks made from nylon and cotton, which hold moisture. Look for a wicking system to keep feet dry and comfortable.
- Put cornstarch or powder on your feet to keep them dry and odor free.
- Maintain Stability with Good Shoe Support
Summer shoes are lightweight, yet they can provide the support you need. Whether you wear sandals or casual shoes, be sure that they provide the cushioning that you require. Chances are you’ll be on your feet more during the summer months, so make sure you’re comfortable and you’re not doing damage to your feet, legs, or back.
- Recognize Summer Shoe Hazards
Foot problems are not only caused by high heels. Flat shoes with little support can be harmful to both men and women. As we tend to wear lighter, flatter shoes in summer, be careful of the risks.
Shoes without cushioning puts added pressure to your back with every step you take. They can also cause cracked heel skin and calluses.
- Avoid Going Barefoot
Barefoot feet have the ultimate exposure risks: sunburn, splinters, broken glass, bug bites, tripping on uneven surfaces, dirt, germs, and the list goes on. You know this, yet at times it’s too tempting to dig your toes into the sand or walk across a cool grassy lawn. Minimize going barefoot; but after you do, be sure to thoroughly clean and moisturize your feet.
7. Stay Hydrated
The heat can exacerbate ankle and foot swelling. Stay hydrated during the day, and when swelling occurs, soak your feet for 15 minutes in ice water to reduce it.
