As Summer draws to a close and you put away your sandals for another year, you may think the need to take care of your feet should follow suit.
Hidden under cosy socks, chunky boots, and super soft slippers, left to be forgotten until the seasons change again. But just because those tootsies are concealed doesn’t mean we should tiptoe around the importance of foot health.
Wash your feet in warm, soapy water daily avoiding very hot water as this can strip away the skin’s natural oils making your feet more prone to cracks. Make sure to dry them thoroughly afterwards.
Exfoliation is key for beautifully soft feet. Use a foot file or pumice stone to gently get rid of any dead skin cells helping to avoid the build-up of thick and painful hard skin over time.
Use a cream specifically formulated for the feet, looking out for circulation-boosting ingredients such as peppermint. For best results apply every evening and wear a pair of socks overnight in order to trap in moisture and allow the cream to soak in. In the morning, your feet will be feeling silky smooth!
Cut your toenails regularly using nail clippers. Cut straight across and never at an angle to avoid the risk of infections and ingrown nails. This is also a great excuse to treat yourself to a pedicure every once in a while!
Avoid wearing shoes that are too small or too big. Ill-fitting shoes can cause friction and pressure potentially resulting in problems for your feet such as blisters, sore heels, and foot pain.
And most importantly…
It all begins at home! Wearing cosy and soft slippers at home can help protect you and your feet while providing you with style, comfort, and warmth.
One of the many reasons why slippers are so important is they can actually decrease your risk of catching colds and flu. Professor Ron Eccles, director of Cardiff University’s Common Cold Centre explains that when your feet get cold the blood vessels in the nose constrict to try to keep you warm, changing the way your body is able to fight off disease and illness.

Slippers can also reduce the risk of bacterial and fungal infections acting as a protective means against transmissible foot diseases such as athlete’s foot.
Not only that, but summer slippers can also make you more productive! Studies have shown that people are increasingly productive when they are more relaxed and at ease, and nothing is more relaxing than slipping your feet into a pair of warm, fluffy slippers!
