10 Tips to Maintain Healthy Feet – from Medical News Today
1. Inspect your feet regularly and pay attention to changes in color, texture or appearance.
2. Maintain good foot hygiene, including washing and drying between the toes.
3. Hydrate the skin. Southern California weather and open shoes can cause rapid loss of moisture from the skin and may result in cracking or the formation of fissures. It is helpful to replace the moisture content by using lotions or creams on a regular basis.
4. Buy proper-size shoes. You may not wear the same size in shoes made by different manufacturers. Purchase new shoes late in the day, when feet tend to be at their largest. Always buy the shoes that feel the best.
5. Don’t ignore foot pain. Symptoms that increase or do not resolve within a reasonable period of time need to be evaluated by your podiatric physician.
6. Cut toenails straight across. Never cut into the corner this could cause an ingrown toenail. Gently file away sharp corners or rough edges with an emery board.
7. Exercise. Walking is a great way to keep weight under control and is an excellent conditioner for the feet. Be sure to wear appropriate athletic shoes when exercising.
8. Alternate your shoes each day. Since the feet have sweat glands, your shoes will absorb moisture from your feet, so it is important to allow your shoes to dry out completely.
9. Avoid walking barefoot to help protect your feet from injury and infection.
10. Put sunblock on your feet while wearing sandals during the day to avoid sunburn.

Bye bye old polish
Remove all traces of old polish on your toe nails with nail polish remover.
Relax and soak your feet
Fill a bowl with warm water and include any foot soak mix or bath salts. Let your feet soak for 5 – 10 minutes.
Get a scrubbing
Use grainy exfoliants to slough off rough spots on your feet. For an inexpensive alternative, you can add some granulated sugar to your favorite thick moisturizer and use that a scrub. Wash off your feet and pat dry.
If you have calluses, use a diamond file to gently scrape the bottoms of your feet and toes in back-and-forth motion. Do not grate your feet like cheese–be gentle and don’t file it raw!
If you just need a touch up, file your nails straight across in one direction with a glass file to even the shape. If a trim is needed, trim them straight across and smooth the edges with the file. To prevent ingrown nails, give them a bit of a round shape.
Use a hydrating foot cream to massage the top and bottom of your feet. After your feet as nearly dry, apply a vitamin-rich cuticle oil on your toes to soften the skin around your nails. Use a wooden stick to gently push back your cuticles.
Make sure to get rid of the excess oils on your nails by swiping an acetone remover over them first. Apply a thin base coat, then two coats of nail polish followed by a top coat to seal in the color.
Let your toes dry for 15 minutes before attempting to wear open-toed shoes. If you’re on the go, use quick-dry drops to speed up the process.
