by Judy Baldinger

Do you think it is really possible to accept the way your feet look?

Are you self-conscious about taking off your shoes and socks?

Do you dread sandal season?

Have your tried stuff and still have gross Issues?

It’s easy to keep them in shoes and socks, but that never solves your foot issues and neglect makes things worse.

Think of your feet as having their unique personality just like your face. Give them the care and attention you give your face.

What you can and can’t do about Ugly Feet

Think of your feet as having their unique personality just like your face. Give them the care and attention you give your face.

No matter how bony, long or short your feet and toes are good grooming is also medically sound advice.

Five tips and why they will make your feet look better, feel better and stay healthy.

  1. Pay attention to your skin.

Keep the skin of your feet intact by moisturizing every day.  The patients we see in our podiatry office with infections, often severe, all start with dry, cracked broken skin that has been neglected. Avoid cracks, they are portals to let in viruses, fungus and bacteria.  Soft and smooth feet are healthy feet.

Treat fungal infections aggressively, and if you are prone to athlete’s foot minimize infections with Pedicurian’s tips and tricks.

  1. Nail care.
  • Cut straight across to avoid ingrown nails.
  • Treat nail injuries.
  • Never cut cuticles, gently push them back.
  • If you are a runner make sure your toe doesn’t keep hitting the front of your shoe, this type of trauma can cause deformed nails.
  1. If you begin to notice a bunion, hammer toe or other changes in your feet get professional evaluation with a podiatrist immediately. Your may have a misalignment of bones in your feet that is causing them to continually shift.  This problem will only worsen and get more painful, ugly and more complicated to treat.
  2. Cosmetics work wonders, even on your feet. You can choose bright polish, or unisex matte polish to disguise a bad nail.
  3. Final Tip: Your feet have personality, just like your face. Flaunt them, care for them and of course give them some gratitude for all the places they take you each day.

You can have better looking feet that you feel better about.  Be inspired to take a step in the right direction. You have the motivation, we give you the tools.
