As I'm winding down for the night on these hot summer days (and believe me, my apartment is a freakin' terrarium!!), I've taken to sitting with my feet on an ice pack -- especially after I've worked out. It feels pretty darn good, and lessens the swelling and discomfort of icky post-exercise feet. ...
I walk a lot, both the treadmill and outside. Sometimes I even run. I often have places where my shoes rub on my feet, not enough for a blister,still annoying. I now use Dr. Scholl's Moleskin. It can be cut to any size I want and is very sticky so it stays in place and protects that raw spot so
Take the time to make certain you shoes are well fitted for walking or running.
After a workout my feet are tired. I bought some cream (I use either foot cream or body lotion). After my shower and before I get dressed each day, I rub the cream on my tired feet. This also keeps my shoes smelling nice, as well as soothing my feet.
I've been "blessed" with dry cracked feet for most of my adult life, nothing I tried ever worked. I saw the commercials for Heel Tastic and figured I'd try it, it is the only thing that ever worked for me, I notice a difference in one application.
