Why Fall Is an Important Time to Love Your Feet

Even though our feet are now being hidden away in socks and boots for the next several months, now is no time to slack on regular foot care. In fact, podiatrists say autumn foot care is one of the most essential steps to keeping your feet healthy. In today’s post, Dr. Hubert Lee at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists in Bellevue, WA, is sharing some fall foot care tips.

Caring For Your Feet This Fall

While many think spring and summer are the only times for pedicures, we recommend people elevate their foot care pampering in the fall. Women should still get a pedicure twice a month and use foot lotion daily. But regular pedicures and daily moisturizing aren't the only essential steps to proper autumn foot care.

Here are some other foot care routines to keep your feet healthy, strong, and beautiful through pumpkin season and beyond.

If you follow these fall foot care tips year-round, they will help guard against aging feet. Women especially suffer from dry skin on their feet as they experience hormonal changes. Their skin thins, and the subcutaneous fat is gone, the soft tissues or plantar fascia become lax, and the sweat glands reduce in effectiveness.
