This can lead to dehydration and dry crusty bits around your heels, toes and knuckles.
Our feet are important. They're the things that keep us standing tall which separates us from the apes and all that.
Here are some tips for good foot health during winter:
- Make sure you mix up those stylish squishy boots for some roomy comfortable flats a few days a week.
- Stick to natural fabrics when it comes to socks, like cotton and wool. Synthetics can cause sweating and strange smells.
- Drink lots of water to stay hydrated inside and out.
- Soak your feet, give yourself a foot massage and use a pumice to get rid of any crusty areas. Even better, treat yourself to a pedicure.
- Paint your nails a lovely bright colour to give your feet some pizzazz during those grey days.
- If your feet are feeling a bit rough then try some original Nivea Creme or even some Nivea Intensive Nourishing Hand Cream (I like the one with Macadamia Nut Oil). Massage it into your feet and then really pile it onto the rough areas (like the heels) and either wrap it in plastic cling-wrap or put on old socks and sleep with it all night. Your feet will feel fabulous, fresh and supple the next morning.
How are your feet feeling?
