Proper Footcare For Air Travel
Traveling can bring so much joy and excitement. There’s nothing like heading off on a new adventure. Unfortunately one of the things that often comes along with travel and exploring the world is tired, achy and swollen feet. Thankfully, there are a few ways you can support your feet to make sure they enjoy your vacation as much as you do!
Hydrate: Staying properly hydrated is SO important! When you’re not drinking enough water, your body will get swollen and dehydrated, leading to uncomfortable, swollen feet. Be sure to drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water per day, ideally even a bit more. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, you should be drinking a minimum of 100 oz of filtered water per day, even more on days you are flying. Air travel can be very dehydrating!
Be sure your shoes fit properly: Ensuring your shoes are the perfect fit is SO important if you plan to spend lots of time on your feet. As fit can vary from shoe to shoe, and feet can change in size and width over time, I recommend getting your feet measured once or twice a year. The “Proper Sizing Technique” is my favorite because it not only measures foot size but also the width and inside measurement, which means it can recommend the perfect shoe and orthotic for your specific foot type.
Avoid fungus & warts: If you’re traveling to a destination that has a pool or beach, be sure to walk around barefoot in the pool area as little as possible. Wear flip flops or sandals in the pool area, and wash and dry feet, ensuring no moisture remains between your toes. Pool decks are often a breeding ground for fungus, bacteria, and warts. You can also apply tea tree oil topically to your toenails for prevention if you like.
Wear lower heels or wedges: If you know you will be spending time on your feet, try to pack lower height heels or wedges. Doing lots of walking in high heels will add to foot fatigue and soreness at the end of the day. Try to keep your heels under 2 inches if possible. Luckily, www.Dtfootwear.com offers a ton of super cute flats, flip flops and wedge sandals that will not only keep you looking stylish but also keep your feet feeling good.

Wear copper socks in the airport: For the same reason I suggested wearing sandals on the pool deck, you should be sure to wear copper socks with your shoes when you travel. When removing your shoes at security checkpoints, you are putting yourself at risk for fungus and warts because so many other people are also removing their socks and shoes in the same area. Copper socks can help to kill bacteria and maintain a healthy environment in your shoes.
Elevate your feet & don’t cross your legs: Elevating your feet whenever possible and not crossing your legs can help to maintain good circulation in your legs. Keeping the blood flow in your legs and feet will help to avoid swelling.
Making sure your feet stay healthy and comfortable will go a long way in making your vacation enjoyable. When your feet feel good, you feel good!
