Foot Health Tips

Submission by: Stephen Hartman, CFPM President

1. Do not use salicylic acid on cracked heels. Heal the cracks first, then present calluses with a salicylic-infused cream.

2. Be sure to soak your feet no longer than 10-12 minutes otherwise it will dry out the skin on your feet.

3. Wearing a three inch heel puts seven times more stress on the ball of the foot than a one inch heel- increasing callus development. It’s important to switch shoes often to avoid callus formation.
