Look after your feet in the warm weather.

The warmer weather can be particularly tough on the feet of older people. Skin is thinner and less elastic. But painful or uncomfortable feet aren't a natural part of ageing, and can be alleviated.

  • Go To

Your feet will remain in better condition if you have a regular foot routine. This includes:

• cutting and filing toenails and keeping them at a comfortable length

• smoothing and moisturising dry and rough skin

• checking for cracks and breaks in the skin and inflammation such as blisters

• looking for signs of infection like nail fungus or other obvious early problems, and seeking professional advice •choosing suitable socks and footwear
