7 Tips for Flip-Flop & Fabulous Feet!

Shedding your shoes for the summer is so liberating! Yet, it comes with the risk of exposing your toes and feet to hot and potentially harmful elements. Renowned podiatrist Dr. Alphonse Tribuiani, co-inventor of Deep Cover Nail System™ (www.DeepCoverSystems.com), the world’s first high-fashioned nail polish designed to prevent, treat, and heal unsightly finger and toe nail fungus, shares his top 7 tips for keeping your feet in tip-top and healthy shape all through the summer:

7 Tips for Flip-Flop & Fabulous Feet!

Tip 1: Protect bare feet or exposed feet and toes with a minimum SPF 50 (yes, 50) moisturizing sunscreen with vitamin A and E;

Tip 2: Pumice your soles with exfoliating creams. Avoid stones and graters—they are breeding grounds for fungus;

Tip 3: BYOP (Bring Your Own Polish) to nail salons and spas. (Sharing bottles = infections);

Tip 4: If you’ve gotta wear super-skimpy sandals, choose ones with better support and balance for your feet;

Tip 5: If you want callous-free feet, don’t walk barefoot! (Insert cushions into shoes, too.);

Tip 6: Cut toenails straight across, not rounded. Rounded nails are entryways to infections; and

Tip 7: Always use foot powder, even when wearing socks! (After removing socks, don’t forget to free your feet and toes of all sock lint.)
