Foot care

footcare main

It is said that you can have an idea about the hygiene of a person by simply taking a look at their feet.
Thus, having beautiful and healthy feet must be our priority in personal hygiene.
Fungal infections such as athlete’s foot may occur due to lack of air circulation around feet. A fungal infection can cause dry skin, redness, blisters, itching, and peeling. It can be hard to cure. Dry skin caused due to this can cause itching and burning feet.
Corns and calluses are caused by the pressure when the bony parts of your feet rub against your shoes. Bunions develop when the joints in your big toe no longer fit together; they become swollen and tender. Spurs are the calcium bumps that grow on bones of your feet, caused by stress on the feet.
However, to prevent infections proper care needs to be taken. This includes washing and scrubbing, especially the heels, with a foot scrubber on a regular basis. It will help remove the dead cells and make the feet softer. Moisturizing them is another important requirement in foot care. Before going to bed, wash your feet thoroughly, dry them with a towel and apply moisturizer generously, especially on the heels and avoiding the area between the toes. If, and when, you go out in the sun wearing sandals, make sure to apply a sunscreen on your feet, just like the rest of your exposed body parts. Wet feet feel uncomfortable and may harbour infections; therefore, make sure to dry them thoroughly, especially between the toes. Most important is wearing comfortable shoes, which allow your feet to relax and breathe easily.
To keep your feet dry and odour free, make use of products like foot powders, foot sprays and specially designed insoles. At Aster Pharmacy you will find the most suitable products to meet your needs.
