How to Take Care of Your Feet in the Summer

The heat of the summertime creates loads of fun activities for us outside. Many people don’t realize that with the rising temperatures comes many unique hazards for our feet. We’re providing you with three easy tips to avoid an untimely visit to the foot doctor in Plainfield.

 

Choose supportive sandals

 

Who doesn’t want to break out the flip flops or go barefoot in the summertime? While these are both tempting options to keep your feet cool in the hot weather, their lack of support poses a threat to your foot health. If you’re tempted to wear flip flops or go barefoot, consider opting for a pair of supportive sandals instead. Contact your foot doctor in Plainfield at Suburban Foot & Ankle for more information on how to protect your specific foot shape.

Wash your feet frequently

Wearing those cute flip flops or opting to go barefoot poses more of a threat than just foot pain. Walking down city streets with exposed or bare feet is germier than we think, and can lead to serious infections. If you’ve been walking outside with exposed feet, wash your feet or use antibacterial hand sanitizer on them when you get home.

Remember sunscreen on your feet!

Applying sunscreen in the summertime is crucial to protecting your skin from harmful UV rays, and your feet are no exception. Feet are one of the most common areas to get sunburnt, simply because people forget to put on sunscreen. If you’re headed for a walk or headed to the beach, don’t forget to spray your feet! 

Enjoy your summer and the hot weather while it lasts, but don’t forget to care for your feet! Contact your foot doctor in Plainfield, Suburban Foot & Ankle, with any questions or concerns.
