Imagine what would it be like if one day you just woke up only to find that your feet have gone missing? Now that’s a scary thought, isn’t it? You won’t be able to walk or stand or even drive! Now that you think about it, you realise how important your feet are to your body but feet are still the most neglected body part. The reason why so many people have ugly feet with bunions, long and dirty toe nails and all are simply because they’ve been neglecting them for too long.
If you don’t wash your feet regularly, they will develop bacteria that makes them smell bad and in the long run, they ruin your skin as well. Your feet might also develop dry and flaky skin which is another problem in itself. This is why feetfitness.com recommends that you wash your feet with soap and towel dry them afterwards. No, showering isn’t enough if you’re wearing closed shoes half the day.
Your feet’s bones can also get misaligned if you don’t wear the right footwear. We have a tendency to buy and wear shoes that look nice but we’re ready to sacrifice our comfort and out foot health to wear these kinds of flashy shoes. In the long term, these shoes can disfigure your bones and that’s how those horrible bunions are formed in the first place. Long story short, your feet can take care of you as long as you can take care of your feet. If you have neglected the health of your feet for a long time then now is the best time to see a podiatrist and consult with them about what you can do to improve the health of your feet.
