Your feet may not be the most visible part of the body during the cold season but that is

no excuse to neglect them. Take care of them and make sure you avoid these common problems:

DRY FEET

Dry, white and ashy feet are

caused by allergies and using

harsh soaps. The skin on the foot

and in between the toes usually

gets affected.

TIPS:

¦ Use a mild soap and apply a

foot or moisturising cream.

¦ Put on petroleum Jelly and

wear socks when going to bed.

CRACKED HEELS

This is caused by pressure on the

foot and a lack of moisture.

TIPS:

¦ Use a pumice stone twice a

week to clean your feet.

¦ Apply moisturising cream.

FOUL ODOUR

This is caused by sweaty feet or

wearing the same shoes daily.

TIPS:

¦ Make sure your feet are clean

and dry before putting on your

boots.

¦ Sprinkle foot powder on your

feet and inside your shoes.

¦ Leave a tea bag in your shoes

overnight to get rid of the smell
