How to Keep Hands and Feet Clean without Drying Out

How to Keep Hands and Feet Clean without Drying Out

You are washing your hands more often. It seems that your washing them all the time. The CDC’s recommendation is that washing hands with soap and water is the best wayt to get rid of germs.

Your feet sweat a lot.  The 125,000 sweat glands in your feet seem to all be working at full speed.  You want to wash off the sweat and smell, but soap dries your skin.

The skin on your hands and feet feels dry, peels and cracks.

Mayo Clinics #1 suggestions is to:

Apply a quality moisturizing cream several times per day.”

What is a “quality moisturizing cream?” 

  • A quality cream will hydrate your skin and repair, restore and smooth.
  • A quality cream will often have the ingredient Urea to help the skin retain moisture.
  • A quality cream is free of parabens, harmful preservatives and coloring.
  • A quality cream leaves you absorbs into your skin and doesn’t leave a greasy residue.
  • A quality cream is one that leaves you with a pleasant experience that you want to repeat again.
  • Get the correct strength moisturizer for your level of dryness. Pedicurian offers you four levels of moisturizer.  Everyday hydration, Extra Strength help (20% Urea), spot treatment for rough spots and calluses (30% Urea), and ultra-strong nail and skin conditioning gel with salycilic acid (42% Urea).

How often should I moisturize?
The recommendation is for “several times a day.”

What is the difference between cream and lotion?
Lotion is a diluted cream.  It often conveniently comes in a pump bottle (the pumps often clog).  Pedicurian recommends sticking with a cream for best results.

What if I don’t want either greasy or dry hands at work, or on the go?
There is good news for you.  You can sanitize both your hands and feet while at the same time restoring the natural Ph balance of the skin and moisturizing with a non-drying, no alcohol wipe.  These wipes come in both a 72 pack and individual wipes for on the go clean.

How can I continue to sanitize and cleanse my hands and feet without drying the skin?

One final tip.
Don’t share your jar of cream.

Foot Care Tips for Runners

Foot Care Tips for Runners

You have the vision, motivation and discipline to get running, but… are you dreading the toll running takes on your feet?  Every time you land on your foot a force of up to three times body weight can be exerted on the human foot while running (as reported by The Saucony shoe company).  Are you dreading post run pain?  Are you one of 20% of runners who experience a foot injury? How much is foot pain preventing you from running?

Yes, you can get more foot comfort with your run.  Prep, Pad and Pamper your way to more foot comfort, health and post run recovery with our podiatrist approved expert running tips.


  1. Make sure the skin of your feet are not callused, cracked or have peeling and itching symptoms of a fungus infection. Keep the skin of your feet healthy and intact. You can soften calluses and exfoliate. (Deep calluses may need to be professionally removed by a podiatrist). Never attempt to cut calluses or corns yourself. 
  2. Nails. Cut nails straight across. 
  3. Sweat. Anti-perspirants specially formulated for your feet prevent the discomfort that excessive sweat can cause runners. When you combat sweat you combat bacteria and fungus that love the wet, dark environment creating in wet shoes. Why an antiperspirant for feet?  It doesn’t contain alcohol which could dry and crack your skin.
  4. Shoes.
    Get rid of old worn out shoes.

    Get to know your feet and get the right shoes for your foot structure. A perfect foot is neutral 90 degrees from your heel up, a pronating foot is one where your weight causes the foot to roll in towards your big toe and a supinating foot is when your weight rolls to the outer edges of your feet toward your little toe.

    Larry Gershberg owner of New Balance stores in New York and New Jersey had been fitting runners for years. He put running shoes into three categories.  What you need depends on your foot structure and the shoe that is best for your feet is best for your run.

    Cushioning shoes:  Best for a neutral foot, light weight and bouncy. Best for young feet, And supinators.

    Stability Shoes: These are typically built with an arch support. They are not neutral and best for a pronating foot.

    Motion Control Shoes: These are the heaviest shoes, they have the most support and an arch support.  Good for older runners and pronators and runners with flat feet.

    Special fit shoes: Shoes with extra wide toe boxes or wide forefoot and narrow heels are available.  You just have to know your feet!

  5. Sock it to me:
    Sock are important for attacking moisture, improving fit and cushioning your run.

    Moisture wicking is the best for running comfort. Avoid cotton that absorbs sweat and takes a long time to dry.

    Wear “smart socks” with trail running bottoms that have more cushioning when you run on surfaces that are not smooth.

    Another one of Larry’s tips. When you can’t find the perfect fit use the thickness of the socks to “adjust” fit of shoes.

  6. Warm Up.
    Yes, your ankles and toes need a warm up just as much as your hamstrings and quads.


What about orthotics? An orthotic is a device that is designed to maintain your foot in the correct neutral position. Orthotics realign a foot that pronates or supinates and provides extra padding to soften your landing.

When your foot is neutral your feet feel better and there is less stress on your knees, hips and shoulders.  Aligning your feet improves your entire run and reduces pain in other joints. Our podiatrist recommended orthotics  for runners: Pedag Sport and Saluber 480 insoles.  For more information on orthotics read our orthotic blog.

How can I avoid Turf Toe? Avoid yellow, thickened nails caused by micro trauma to the toe by making sure your shoes fit correctly. Shoes that are too tight/small or too large can cause this condition. Avoid this condition with a heavy duty toe cap designed for runners.

What about irritations on my less than perfect feet?  Avoid abrasions on hammertoes, bunions and heels with medical grade silicone padding.


Attention to post run recovery will ease the stress your feet have just gone through and get you ready for your next run.

  1. Treat the pain. Blisters an abrasions. Bruising and excessive pain may be a sign of a stress fracture that needs medical attention.
  2. Cramps? Hydrate with an electrolyte drink.
  3. Therapeutic foot massage. Self massage with our therapeutic oil or use a massage ball to ease overworked muscles.
  4. Soak. Our soaking bowl accommodates up to size 14 feet.
  5. Rest your feet. Yes, this low tech, easy tip is the best.

One last tip:
Vary your route and vary the types of surfaces you run on.

Home Remedies for Ingrown Toenails

Home Remedies for Ingrown Toenails

Do Home Remedies Work for Ingrown Toenails?
How effective are home remedies for Ingrown Toenails?

You’re in agony.

Each step is torture.

It Recurs.

It often gets infected.

You may have even received treatment,

But it keeps coming back.

You’ve tried wearing different shoes.

Even after you’ve been on antibiotics.

You may even have tried to dig under your skin to cut out the nail.

Here are some common recommendations for home treatment of ingrown nails.

Take this True or False for home care remedies and see what works best for home care of ingrown toenails:

T/F: Soak your feet in warm water or even apple cider vinegar.

T/F: Put Cotton or Floss under the nail

T/F: Apply antibiotic ointment or take oral antibiotics.

T/F: Pain relief medication such as aspirin, ibuprofen or acetaminophen will help me.

T/F: Topical or oral antibiotics will make the ingrown nail problem go away.

The answer to all of these questions is FALSE.

What should I do if I have an ingrown nail?

Podiatrists best advice on treating ingrown toenail is to treat an ingrown nail immediately.  The longer you wait the worse it becomes. If it is not infected it may become infected. Antibiotics treatments haven’t worked because the cause of the problem has not been addressed.

This problem is almost never self healing.

How does a podiatrist treat an ingrown toenail?

Podiatrist are medically trained to treat this condition. Often you have to not only cut the nail, but you have to have the piece of nail growing under your skin removed. Not all ingrown toenails are treated the same way.  A podiatrist does hundreds of these procedures and understand what type of treatment you need. Sometimes local anesthesia is used to minimize your pain. Don’t rely on an Urgent Care Center to resolve the problem they have neither the experience or the expertise.

What can I do to prevent ingrown toenail?

The best home care treatment for ingrown toenails is to avoid the problem with accurate knowledge of how to care for your toenails and a small investment in  simple self-care.

  1. Use precision instruments to cut the nail straight across leaving the nail to grow approximately 1mm beyond the nail fold (corner). Get the right implement whether it is a nail nipper for thick nails, a nail scissor, or if you prefer a toenail clipper.  Never round the edges or cut the corners.  This may sound counterintuitive, but it works.
  2. Make sure your shoes fit well. Shoes that are both too large, or too small can cause the nail to grow into your skin.

    Shoes that are tight will put pressure on the nail,

    Shoes that are too large will cause micro trauma as your feet keep sliding around and bumping up against the top of shoes.
  1. If you have excessive pronation, your foot turns in too much, your big toe may keep bumping against your shoes. You may need an orthotic to correctly align your feet to prevent ingrown nails.
If you run be extra careful about fit and wearing socks. Make sure your toe does not keep bumping up against the front of your shoe.

Summer Feet - Prep, Pad and Pamper

How Can I Get Rid of Hot, Sweaty Summer Feet and Grunge?

We all wait for the great weather, sunshine and outdoors of summer.  You can’t wait to get into open shoes.  Feel the breeze on your feet and have the grass tickle your  toes.  You want to keep it light and easy down to your feet. Yet, it’s not so poetic and simple.  Reality check.   

  • Your feet get hot.
  • Your feet sweat a lot.
  • Your feet get dirty and grimy.
  • Your sandals may fit well when you leave the house, but as your feet swell during the day do sandal straps dig in and chafe your skin?
  • When you wear shoes without socks you worry about odor.

Feet exposed are more susceptible to injury, and the fungi that cause athlete’s foot thrive in hot, humid, wet weather.

You can minimize these hazards and enjoy summer days.  Prep, pad and pamper.



  • Silicone tape works like “magic” to prevent straps from digging in.
  • Podiatrist’s recommend wearing socks.
  • Improve alignment and shoe comfort with an orthotic. We even carry a terry lined summer orthotic that absorbs sweat when you don’t wear socks.
