How To Take Care of Your Winter Feet: Third Culture Kid 🇨🇭🇫🇷🇺🇸🇬🇧🇨🇦/🇯🇲🇷🇺

Before I Share My Foot Care Advice, A Few Things:

Prevention is Better than Cure:

A Note About Boots and Sub-Zero Temperatures:

Blister Cures:

  1. Soak your feet in warm/hot water with unscented Epsom salts. Scented ones irritate your skin. Move your feet around because it helps the blister stop hurting sooner.
  2. When your feet get wrinkly, or when the blister stops hurting, take a sterilized implement (I use nail scissors or a nail clipper) and burst it. Or get someone to burst it for you. Note: if waiting for your feet to get wrinkly isn’t an option for you due to nerve damage, wait until the blister stops hurting to pop it.
  3. Keep your feet in the warm water until the pain goes away.
  4. Wrap it snugly in a Band-Aid (it needs pressure). You can put something to moisturize the skin too if you want.
  5. Put on some socks that you love and put your feet up later (I will explain in a minute what my recommendations for that are).
