Avoid Foot Pain While Shopping This Holiday Season
posted: Dec 17, 2013.
When it comes to Black Friday and all the shopping that needs to be done before the holidays, most people are going to be spending a lot of time on their feet.
Dr. Steve Rosenberg, CEO/President of Foot Products Enterprises Inc., has a few tips for keeping them healthy while going to stores.
The first thing he suggests is to wear a good pair of shoes that fits your type of arch, or add over the counter insoles to make them more comfortable. Dr. Rosenberg warns against staying on your feet for too long during the day. He advises that shoppers change into slippers or soak their feet in warm water after they have finished their trips to the mall.

Every Day Foot Care
Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. After all, without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks. It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before, for example.
For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops.
Also, wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat. Also make sure that the socks fit properly.
