Reasons Why You Need New Shoes

Style, it changes constantly we have to keep up.

Comfort, just try playing basket ball in your 3 inch heels! You
need sport shoes, running shoes, dress shoes, flats, sandals and

Health, it is bad to wear the same style of shoe all the time. You
need to flex and relax that Achilles tendon. Women who wear
only heels all day can have great pain when they try to wear flats.
That poor tendon doesn’t know how to work correctly when
lengthened. That is one of the reasons why that famous shoe that
starts with a B… is so good for you. The first few days of wearing
them are heck but they conform to your feet and give that tendon
the stretching action it needs. (It can make for a shapelier leg

Lets talk sweat, do you wear the same pair of sport shoes day
after day for hours at a time? The same goes with business shoes,
flats or heels. Ladies we have about 250,000 sweat glands in each
of our feet. You need more than one pair of shoes just to let the
poor things breathe a little.

The next time anyone says you don’t need a new pair of
shoes use one of the above reasons ( I especially like the
sweat one,) and watch them help you pick out the new

You Need a Pedicure

Warm weather is here and you need a pedicure. Take a good look at your feet. Run one up and down your leg, does it feel like a message with sandpaper?

Now you have a choice.

  • Go to a saloon…I like this one because it makes me feel special.
  • Do it yourself…Not as hard as you might think.

If you are going to do it yourself, you’ll need tools.

  • Toenail clippers.
  • A file.
  • Something to soak your feet in.
  • A towel.
  • A pumice stone, or my favorite an egg foot file.
  • Foot cream.
  • Polish in your favorite shade.

First clip those nails. Straight across is best. Use the file to gently smooth the corners. Don’t get too close to the corners of your big toes. We don’t want any in-grown toe nails.

Next smooth off any callouses and dead skin from your feet and heels. This is where you want to use the pumice stone or egg foot file. Do this before you soak your feet.

A messaging foot bath is a plus if you have one. I have used an oblong plastic bin that was about six inches high and that worked well also. Put a soothing lather in the water. Dim the lights. Putting cool cucumber slices or damp teabags that have been chilling in your fridge, on your eyelids is a nice touch also. Then sit back and do nothing but relax for about 10 minutes. This is your time, enjoy it.

When time is up, dry your feet with a soft towel and smooth on the foot cream or lotion and polish those toes.

Your feet will thank you. Smile when you put on those new sandals and that ankle bracelet. You look great.

Remember Love Yourself and Dream…Deb.

For those of you who are interested, here is the egg foot file. This is great because it smooths your feet and the shavings are collected so that you won’t make a mess.
