Did you know? Our feet carry us an average of 184,000 kilometers in a lifetime.1 Good foot health allows you to stay active and healthy.
Tips for basic foot care
- Check your feet daily
- Wear comfortable shoes and socks that fit your feet
- Be active daily
- Wash your feet every day
- Keep your feet soft and smooth
- Cut or file your nails straight across and never shorter than the end of your toe
If your feet hurt, see your doctor or other health care providers such as a podiatrist.
