During the holiday season, people are on their feet more than any other time of year. Topical BioMedics provides tips for shopping without dropping and protecting feet.

With proper care, feet don't have to suffer--even if you shop 'til you drop

People are on their feet during the holidays more than any other time of year, and need to take special care of them to avoid aches, pains, and swelling.

The holidays have begun. The next couple of months are festive and fun…But can be tough on feet. Shopping for hours, standing in long checkout lines, attending holiday parties, cooking, traveling to friends and relatives, lugging goodies to the post office and a whole lot of running around take their toll on toes, feet, ankles, legs, and knees. Wearing fashionable boots, heels, and other non-sensible footwear significantly ups the pain ante, causing tired, achy, cranky, sore and swollen feet and aching legs. Then there’s dancing the night away at holiday parties that put feet through their paces.

It is possible to shop without dropping. Lou Paradise, president and chief of research at Topical BioMedics, makers of Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream, offers tips to keep feet happy and get through the holiday season pain-free.

Treat Feet Right:

-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 results in 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 evenly on both sides of your body

-Whenever possible use a shopping cart to avoid stressing your back with heavy packages.

-When walking, keep your back straight and relaxed; try not to slouch as it shifts your weight forward and keeps you off balance.

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

-When shopping, ask for assistance to lift heavy objects.

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

-To maintain happy, healthy, pain-free feet, apply Topricin Foot Therapy Cream before heading out for heavy day of holiday shopping or a night on the town, and then again when you return home. Massage up legs to relieve muscle aches, and apply all the way around knees for soothing relief.    

-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.

Don’t pop an ibuprofen or simply just soak your feet in Epsom salts—soothe pain and pamper your feet with Topricin Foot Therapy Cream.

Topricin Foot Therapy Cream specifically targets ankle and foot pain, and is patented for neuropathy which is an extremely painful condition. The product’s fourteen natural medicines naturally support and assist the body by helping the subcutaneous skin layers of the feet drain toxins and excessive fluids from the tissues that increases blood flow and helps heal the damage that is causing the pain.

Apply Topricin Foot Therapy in the morning before putting on shoes, periodically throughout the day whenever possible, and again at night to maintain happy, healthy and pain-free feet. As an added plus, Topricin Foot Therapy Cream is moisturizing, so it soothes dry, cracked skin.

Topricin Foot Therapy also relieves foot pain symptoms associated with Plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, sprained and swollen ankles, forefoot pain, blisters, aching feet, flat feet, hammertoes, corns and calluses and other painful foot conditions and injuries.
