Are you starting to make plans for Valentine’s Day? In addition to meals and treats to share with loved ones, we have an important suggestion: include some self-care in your itinerary — specifically, some Valentine’s Day pampering for your feet.
How to Treat Your Feet
Not sure where to start? We have plenty of suggestions!
Get a Medical Pedicure
Sure, heading to the spa is great, but a medical pedicure takes it to another level. You still get the pampering you want, but you also improve the health of your feet, not just their appearance.
Opt for a Massage
Massages are great for improving circulation, which can be a big concern for those with diabetes or general foot problems. You can get this as part of your pedicure or on its own.
Do Some At-Home Care
Start by inspecting your feet for any problems. Then, you can soak, scrub, moisturize and massage. Use your favorite products or try out new ones for special occasions.
Buy New Shoes
Arch support and fit are critical to foot comfort. If you find that your current shoes are causing problems, or even if they aren’t, use this holiday as an excuse for a new pair of comfy shoes.
See Your Podiatrist
While it might not be the most exciting moment of your Valentine’s Day, seeing your podiatrist is key to foot health. Be sure to schedule an appointment, especially if you have any health concerns.
