Health Tip: Protect Your Feet

Avoid walking barefoot

(HealthDay News) -- Your feet can take a beating during the summer, notably from the high heat and sun exposure.

The American Podiatric Medical Association suggests how to protect your tootsies during the hotter months:

  • Always wear shoes or sandals, even at the beach or pool. Avoid going barefoot.
  • Spread sunscreen over the tops of your feet, your heels and your toes. Reapply after getting out of the water.
  • To help reduce swelling in the feet, drink plenty of water throughout the day.
  • Frequently stretch, wiggle and flex your legs, toes and feet to help promote circulation.
