Look after your feet
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.
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
