Shop But Don’t Drop! Five Tips To Keep Your Feet Happy This Holiday Season!

I hate the holidays. It’s not because of the food, or the drinks, or the music, not even because of the ugly sweaters that will appear, it’s because of the shopping. I have a fairly large list of people that I have to shop for- a husband, a mother, a brother in law, five kids that range from toddlers to tweens, and lots of friends. That means that shopping online is impossible in my opinion because that’s just too many shipments to manage. That means more walking, and that means more foot pain.

Topricin provided me with tons of tips to keep your feet happy! Keep reading

-Leave the heels at home and wear comfortable shoes for spending hours on your feet. Walking or running shoes are most preferable to help increase comfort and prevent ankle and foot pain that result from wearing heels.

-If shoes are tight, use a shoe stretcher to make them more comfortable before heading out the door.

-Wear cotton-based socks to absorb moisture and keep your feet dry.

-Lighten the load of your shopping bags and make frequent trips to the car to drop off packages.

-Distribute the weight of shopping bags on both sides of your body.

-Consider using a shopping cart to not stress your back with heavy packages.

-Keep your back straight and relaxed when walking. Try not to slouch as your weight is shifted forward.

-Women should consider carrying a small backpack rather than a heavy purse.

-Ask for assistance to lift heavy objects.

-Keep up your energy and take frequent breaks to enjoy a snack and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and rest your feet. If possible, elevate your feet to help reduce swelling during your break.

-Apply Topricin Foot Therapy Cream before heading out for a heavy day of holiday shopping to maintain happy, healthy and pain-free feet.

-After a long, punishing day on your feet, be sure to stretch and flex your toes with controlled movements. (Don’t bounce!).

-Soak your feet in a warm Epsom salt bath, dry and massage in Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream for soothing relief. Running your feet over a reflexology roller or golf ball after applying Topricin gives feet a great massage.

-See your doctor or podiatrist immediately if you have concerns about any foot issues.

I have used Topricin before and I love it. The pain relief is almost instant. It’s great to use not only after a long shopping trip, but after a long day of work, or even after exercising. It’s not greasy, it does not stain and it has no odor.

Seriously, pick up a tube and tell me what you think!

Topricin Foot Therapy Cream is available in a convenient travel-friendly 2-ounce tube (MSRP $16.95) and is just the right size to store in a purse, backpack or tote bag. The product is also available in two larger sizes: 4-ounce jar (MSRP $24.95) and 8-ounce bottle (MSRP $39.95).

Topricin is available in pharmacies, natural food stores and other fine retailers nationwide, including Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppe, Vitamin World, Fred Meyer, Wegmans, and other retail stores throughout the U.S., as well as direct from the Topical BioMedics’ online store.
