Everyday foot care is a practice that should be maintained year-round, regardless of the season. There is no denying, however, that the unpredictable wet weather of fall makes it a season where extra care should be taken. Prolonged exposure to moisture and water can create bacterial growth on the feet. Washing and scrubbing cracked feet can help remove dead cells, and the space between toes should be cleaned regularly. Toenails should be kept trimmed to prevent dirt from accumulating and makes cleaning the nails much easier. The feet should always be kept dry and clean, and it is important to wear waterproof shoes if possible when out in the rain.

 Everyday foot care is necessary all year round, regardless of weather. To learn more about daily foot care practices and how to maintain optimal foot health, consult with podiatrist Dr. Michael H. Wynn, DPM of Foot Care Associates of Texas. Dr. Wynn can answer any of your foot- and ankle-related questions.

Every Day Foot Care

Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. After all, without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks. It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before, for example.

For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops.

Also, wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.

Stylist Morgan Rush gives readers of Missouri’s Josephine magazine tips for showcasing feet at their best during the upcoming summer months.  She admits that her own feet are “callused and a little ugly” after being suffocated in boots all winter, and provides her own tricks for achieving sandal-ready toes.

Rush says that pedicures throughout the year keep skin from drying out and prevent calluses.  If calluses develop anyway, it is best to file them lightly after showers when the skin is softest.  Rush warns against porous pumice stones that trap and contain dirt, as well as trendy pedicure products that may not live up to their bold claims or glitzy advertised hype.

Constant foot care is important to maintain beautiful, healthy feet.  For questions about what routine practices are right for you, see Dr. Michael H. Wynn, DPM of Foot Care Associates of Texas. Dr. Wynn will take care of all your foot and ankle needs.

Rob, in transition from homelessness, bathes his feet at the Best Foot Forward clinic at Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission. (Credit: Pat Loeb)Best Foot Forward, a new non-profit organization is having it first fundraiser at Field House Center City Philadelphia. The group provides a very special service to the homeless: foot care.

“The homeless population often walks around in shoes that they didn’t purchase themselves so they’re ill-fitting, they’re walking around in all kinds of weather, lots of hours a day, maybe don’t get to change their socks very regularly,” said Kara Cohen founder of “Best Foot Forward.” Cohen is a home healthcare nurse, but monthly she tends the homeless; soaking their feet, foot rub, applying lotion, powder, and supply them with clean socks.“It’s so rewarding because the guys feel so much better about themselves when they leave, said Cohen.
