TIPS

The pair of two legs that are going to help your dream come true, need a special attention. A hike or trek is successful only when completed without injury. The success of the adventure mainly depends on whether your feet will carry you through your journey. Care and maintenance will make it easy!

Follow the simple steps given below 

 

1. Trim those nails - short and straight across

  • Sharp nails will cut up your socks 

  • Long nails will jam into the front of your boots

  • Jagged nails can result in a case of ingrown toenail

Keeping the nails clean and in proper trim will make walking comfortable. Hard and stubborn nails can be trimmed by soaking the feet in a mild solution of warm soap water for about 10 minutes before trimming.

2. Keep them clean

A long walk will result in the sweating of the feet. This will create a damp, warm medium for the growth of bacteria and fungus that can cause cracking, sores, infection and pain

Wash the feet with soap (carbolic soap is preferred) and water to prevent these possibly disabling conditions. Dry the feet thoroughly afterwards.

  1. Massage them

  2. Whenever you feel that your feet can take some rest, massage them to keep the circulation going. It will also help the skin to breathe freely

  3. Blister Tip

  • Lance it with a needle sterilized in a flame

  • Disinfect it. (Always carry disinfectant solution on an outdoor trip)

  • Cover it with duct tape (or bandage it with sticking plaster)

Removing sticking tape is tricky. To help it come off easily, soak the feet in warm water till the adhesive comes loose. Peel the tape off carefully after taking due care not to snare any hair in it.

Following these simple tips during the trek will ensure that your feet will carry you all the way without hurting.

Bon voyage!
