[Video] How To Reduce Foot Swelling | Scarlettos Shoe Tips - Episode 2

There is a lot to love about summer but hot, swollen feet isn't one of them!

Here Scarletto's owner Candice Bernardoni shares some tips on how to reduce foot swelling. You can view the video or read the transcript below.

Hi ladies! I am Candice and I am the owner of Scarletto’s. I was in Sydney over the last couple days and the heat was disgusting. I was on my feet for a bit and I found by the afternoon my feet were quite swollen, and I have noticed that a couple of ladies have mentioned this over the last month or so, so I thought I would share some tips on how you can reduce swelling and look after your shoes during the hotter months as we go into January and February.

So number one – If you want to sprinkle some talcum powder in your shoe, just a little bit, a couple of pinch fulls, during the day as your feet start to swell, this will help the shoes wear better and stop rubbing against any swollen part which might lead to blisters.

Another good tip is Epsom salt bath, luke warm, 10 minutes, after the kids go to bed, if they ever do, sit down, soak your feet for 10 minutes while you are watching T.V. This will help alleviate the swelling. 

And if you are lying on the coach or lying in bed, grab a couple of pillows and prop your feet up, and the elevation will also help with your swelling. So hopefully that helps us get through the summer months.

Another tip for if you need a little bit more give out of your shoes, is pop them in the sun for 10 minutes. The sun will help expand the leather and when you put your foot in it will stretch that little bit more to cater for your swollen feet.

That’s all I’ve got for now. If you would like us to answer any questions on shoes, feet, fashion, leave a comment below and don’t forget to share it if you know someone who is suffering the same thing.

Thank you!
