Applying cream to your feet in the morning and night can prevent so many problems, such as hard, dry and cracked skin.

You do not need to use expensive creams. One the cheapest and most effective, is Vaseline (in a tub).

Always apply to both the upper and underside of your feet. Never go between the toes as the cream can get trapped and this can cause the skin in between to soften and breakdown very easily. This then provides an entry for bacteria, which can result in an infection e.g. athlete’s foot.

When applying at night, to prevent the bed clothes from becoming marked, wear a pair of socks.

****When applying creams/Vaseline, apply in moderation, as this will make your feet greasy, so always take care that you do not slip ****
