The weather in Kentucky (and a large portion of the nation) can be confusing this time of year. The temperature dropped to 35F last night and left a blanket of frost across the farm, but it’s nearly 64F out right now. The rest of the week it’s supposed to warm up with highs in the 70’s and lows in the 50’s. The huge temperature shift makes it difficult to dress accordingly. I might be out in flip flops one day, and need boots and socks in the mornings. The drastic change in footwear can also cause problems with your feet. I rarely wear close toed shoes during warm weather, and the transition to boots can cause blisters especially if you get new shoes. It’s miserable to get a blister when you have no option other than to wear warm shoes, but I found a solution, COMPEED® Blister Medium Cushions. How do you manage winter foot care?
I love these driving loafers, but they’re notorious for giving me blisters if I wear them an extended period of time. You can’t see my blister and the COMPEED® Blister Medium Cushions are barely noticeable; in fact, I actually forgot about my blister or the cushion until I crossed legs and saw it.
The technology of the cushion provides a skin-like barrier that prevents dirt, water, and bacteria. The bandages have been available in Europe for nearly 30 years, and they’ve just became available in the US, currently exclusively at Walgreens. COMPEED® Blister Medium Cushions are breathable and cover any exposed nerve endings to help ease the pain of a blister. You just apply COMPEED® Blister Medium Cushions over the entire blister and allow it to stay in place until it falls off which can take several days.
Here a few winter foot care tips that I use to keep my feet warm and blister free:
- I personally would wear socks the entire winter, but that isn’t good for your feet. Wearing socks all the time can keep your feet damp, and this can cause various foot diseases. Allow ample time for your feet to air dry each day.
- Cotton and wool socks are best for wicking away moisture and keeping feet dry.
- Wash your feet every day and keep your skin moisturized.
- Keep your boots and shoes as dry as possible and don’t go out in wet or damp shoes.
