WEARING heels is a look that is both loved and loathed by women. Whilst they add glamour to an outfit and lengthen the legs and figure, giving a slimming effect, they can also cause problems in your feet and when walking. However, there are some things you can do to limit the damage they can cause.
Heels don’t have to be skyscrapers to get the same effect and the varying height will have varying degrees of discomfort. It is recommended heels should not be higher than 7cm to be able to be worn all day.
Prepare your feet
Think ahead and help prevent any discomfort by putting cream on your feet first or use padded silicone insoles to make them more comfortable.
Put in freezer
Some say by wrapping shoes in a plastic bag and putting it in the freezer 15 minutes before use will smooth the shoe and prevent chafing and friction of the feet.
Use talcum powder
If you sweat a lot add talcum powder inside your shoe or directly on to the foot to help control your sweat and make walking in heels more comfortable.
