Step into Spring: Your Guide to Spring Cleaning for Healthy Feet

As the flowers bloom and the temperatures rise, it's time to bid farewell to winter and embrace the freshness of spring. And just like your home could use a good spring cleaning, so too could your feet! After months of being bundled up in socks and boots, your feet deserve some extra love and attention to step into the new season feeling refreshed and revitalized. In this blog post, we'll explore some essential tips and tricks for spring cleaning for feet.


Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Feet

nail trimming

1. Trim and shape nails.

Transitioning from snug footwear to the freedom of sandals or airy sneakers can sometimes reveal neglected foot care issues, notably nail pain. After months of confinement, our toenails may bear the brunt of tight spaces, leading to discomfort and even pain. Cutting your own nails can be a bit of a struggle but sometimes it's the only option for relief. We find that using an angled toenail clipper is best. If possible, soak your feet in an Epsom salt bath to soften the nails, then gently trim them all the way across, ensuring there are no tiny pieces of nail left in the corners. Finally, use a nail file to smooth the edges, ensuring there are no pokey bits. This simple routine can help alleviate nail pain and ensure your feet are ready to step into spring with ease.

2. Exfoliate away winter dryness.

During the colder months, your feet can become dry and rough due to the lack of moisture and exposure to harsh weather conditions. Start your spring foot care routine by exfoliating away the winter dryness. Use a gentle foot scrub and foot file to exfoliate dead skin cells to reveal smoother, softer feet. Focus on areas prone to roughness, such as the heels and balls of your feet. We highly recommend JoEllen's Scrub for exfoliation.


3. Hydrate and moisturize.

After exfoliating and trimming, it's essential to replenish moisture. Choose a moisturizer specifically designed for feet, as the skin on your feet differs from the rest of your body. Most of the Gehwol Foot Cream's contain lipids, excellent for replenishing your winter skin. For an extra hydration boost, consider wearing moisturizing socks overnight to lock in moisture and wake up to softer, smoother feet in the morning.

4. Protect and prevent.

As you step into spring and start wearing open-toed shoes and sandals, Invest in supportive footwear that provides proper arch support and cushioning to prevent foot pain and discomfort. Additionally, be sure to apply sunscreen to your feet too.
