It can be hard to remember about your feet in the middle of winter.  They have usually been covered in thick socks and boots and we adopt an “out of sight, out of mind” mentality.  However, take some time to include some TLC (tender loving care) for your feet.

Here are some ways to love your feet:

  • Draw yourself a foot bath. It can be in the tub or in a large bucket. If you have a massaging foot spa from a gadget store, this is the time to use it!  Use essential oils like lavender, add Epsom salts, and throw in some rose petals. This will be such a great treat if you’ve worked on your feet all day!
  • Give yourself a nice foot rub. Grab some lotion and use your thumbs in a circular motion on the top or bottom of the feet. Increase pressure as you like, making sure to include points of tightness, such as: along the plantar fascia (especially if you suffer from plantar fasciitis), and under the big toe joint. If you’re really in the mood for pampering, why not schedule a foot massage?
  • Treat your feet to a wonderful gift like a foot-warming blanket, memory foam cushioned slippers, massaging foot spa/bath, cozy socks, a gift certificate to a foot massage, or a luxurious foot massager.
  • Unless you have diabetes and have lost sensation in the feet, you could cozy up by the fireplace, and warm up your feet.
  • Finally, do yourself a favor and stay away from the fancy dress shoes, as those are rarely comfortable. Your feet will thank you!

One of the best things you can do to love your feet is to make an annual podiatry appointment to see our board-certified podiatrist, Dr. Brandon Macy at Clark Podiatry Center. He can assess your feet and give them the treatment and care that they need. Come see him at our Clark, NJ office.
