Caring For Your Feet This Summer
By Your Favorite Hamilton Heights, NY, Podiatrist

As the top-rated podiatrists in Hamilton Heights, NY, we’re dedicated to helping you keep your feet in tip-top shape all year round. Once summer hits, our patients become especially attentive to foot/ankle issues that may impact their ability to confidently wear open-toed shoes or join their friends in a round of beach volleyball. Summer is your feet’s time to shine – here are some tips that will help:

Take Care of Corns and Calluses

Even if they’re not painful, corns and calluses can be unsightly enough to make you second guess your new sandals. If you’ve got a buildup of hard, dead skin on your heels, toes, or on the balls of your feet, try this:

  • Soak your feet in water (a nice, warm bath is always a good idea) for 10-15 minutes
  • Scrub your calluses with a pumice stone or foot file
  • Towel dry and apply a rich, moisturizing lotion

Upgrade Your Flip-Flops

Flip-flops are easy to slip on and off, they’re cool, and they’re comfortable, but none of that matters if your feet ache at the end of the day or if your tender toes are exposed to sharp seashells or volcanically hot asphalt. If you just can’t give up your flip-flops, there are a few ways you can upgrade your flip-flop game, but if you truly want to protect your feet and give your legs and back the support and alignment assistance they need, consider bringing along some sneakers or other higher quality pair of shoes.

Limit Barefoot Time

The only thing worse than an entire summer in flip-flops is walking around barefoot in the wrong places. We’re all for sinking your toes into the fresh-cut grass from time to time, but strolling barefoot through the dog park or in the showers at the community pool will increase your likelihood of getting athlete’s foot, toe fungus, plantar warts, ringworm, and other injuries or infections.

Slather on the Sunscreen

While you may be quick to protect your face, arms, chest, back, and legs, when’s the last time you smoothed some SPF onto your feet? Sunburns are no fun, especially when you have to put your shoes back on to head home, so make sure you apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF 15 to your feet before you head to the pool, and reapply regularly – especially if you take a swim.

Looking for a podiatrist in Hamilton Heights, NY?  Call 718.395.4904 and schedule a consultation with the experts at Weil Podiatry, and we’ll help you assess your foot health and take whatever steps necessary to get you ready for plenty of fun in the sun.
