From Sandals to Closed Shoes

5 Footcare tips to move from sandals to closed shoes

Your feet have been in the open air all summer. Now, with closed footwear like heels, narrow pointy shoes and “ballerina flats”, they are in a warm, dark area. So there is always the danger of picking up a fungus on the foot.

What do we suggest for home care in the fall?

  1. autumn feetMoisturize: 

    Fall marks the end of humid weather. Furnaces start getting on producing much drier air. The skin on the feet, as elsewhere on the body, becomes drier and in need of extra moisturizing. Pamper your feet with daily use of Footlogix moisturizing products such as Daily Maintenance, Very Dry Skin formula or DD Cream Mousse.

  2. Stretch:

    Don’t let the first step that you take every morning be painful for you. Stretch out your feet and ankles when you get up in the morning

  3. Wear comfortable shoes:

    Wear “fashion” shoes only when out, wear more comfortable shoes at home and wear “sensible” shoes for work. Closed heels – which can lead to blisters and calluses from friction. “Ballerina” flats with absolutely no support on the sole can lead to Plantar Fasciitis and fallen longitudinal arches.

  4. Protect your shoes and feet:

    Use Footlogix Foot Deodorant spray in the morning, and spray your shoes with Footlogix Shoe Deodorant spray when you take them off.

  5. Avoid the flu:

    Protect yourself from coughs and colds, get lots of sleep, get out into the sunlight whenever possible to get extra Vitamin D and get lots of Vitamin C

Hello Fall! What does it mean for the skin on our feet?

What does Fall mean for the skin of our feet?

Changes in climate and weather conditions also mean changes in the skin of your feet. Two vital factors causing the existence of climate zones, are temperature and moisture. These factors affect the skin of your feet just as much as they affect your wardrobe and shoes. Here’s what the weather means for your feet, depending on where you live:

  1. Places like Calgary and Mount Pearl are already seeing the end of a cool summer. The weather becomes drier, lacking moisture in the air. Furnaces also produce much drier air. The skin on the feet, as elsewhere on the body, becomes much drier and in need of extra moisturizing. Use Footlogix’s moisturizing formulas such as the DD Cream Mousse and Daily Maintenance Formulas to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized
  2. Do you live in Miami or Las Vegas? You are probably still in sandals and flip flops. But they could cause dryness and heavy callusing to your feet.  Don’t let your flip flops make your feet go “ouch-umph.” Wear the Footlogix Rough Skin Formula preventatively to avoid the sand-paper like feeling on the skin of your feet. If walking barefoot outside or on the beach, observe the bottom of the feet for any blisters, scrapes or cuts when you come back inside.
  3. Places like Toronto, New York and Chicago are still experiencing  a pleasant mid 20 degrees Celsius/ 70 degrees Farenheit temperature. Stubbed toes are common if you are still wearing open-toed shoes in this climate. Use the Footlogix Nail Tincture preventatively on stubbed toes.
