FEET NEED EXTRA SKIN PROTECTION DURING WINTER

 

 

 

PODIATRIST, DR. MICHAEL NIRENBERG STATES, "FROM THE MINOR, DAILY IRRITATION OF DRY, CRACKED SKIN TO THE PERILS OF FROSTBITE, WINTER IS A RISKY TIME OF YEAR FOR YOUR FEET. PRACTICE PROPER FOOT HUGIENE.  MOM WAS RIGHT WHEN SHE ADVISED YOU TO WASH YOUR FEET EVERYDAY AND TO ALWAYS WEAR CLEAN SOCKS.  NOT ONLY SHOULD YOUR FEET BE CLEAN, THEY SHOULD ALSO BE DRY BEFORE YOU PUT YOUR BOOTS ON, SINCE MOISTURE IN THE COLD WEATHER CAN PROMOTE BLISTERS AND OPEN SORES.  I RECOMMEND USING A GOOD QUALITY FOOT POWDER DAILY TO HELP PREVENT MOISTURE FROM ACCUMULATING."
