1. To eliminate split nails and to reduce the risk of ingrown nails, trim your nails into a square shape and cut them even with the tips of your toes.
  2. Smooth your toenails by filing in long strokes with an emery board, and for a little pampering, buff your nails to a beautiful shine.
  3. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your feet on those days they are on display to the elements.
  4. Shop for shoes in the afternoon. Your feet swell during the day, so buying shoes later in the day will improve your odds of buying shoes that fill well.
  5. Change your socks often, to keep moisture build-up to a minimum.
  6. Wear flip-flops in communal changing areas to protect against athlete’s foot
  7. Stretch to avoid muscle cramps. Stave off toe cramps by raising, pointing and curling your toes for five seconds. Repeat 10 times. Rotating your ankles can also help relax feet. Cup your heel and turn each ankle slowly five times to loosen ankle joints.
  8. Feet and ankles can swell from sitting too long in one position or if you’ve been on your feet all day. Elevate your legs to reduce swelling. Lay or sit and lift your legs above your heart.
