The last thing you want while vacationing is to be sidelined by a toe or foot injury. It’s always a good idea to take good care and protect your feet, but especially so when you are away from home. 

Whatever your destination may be, make sure that your feet stay healthy and ready for walking, hiking, or dancing. Here are our top tips to keep your feet happy and comfortable wherever you go: 

Pack appropriate shoes for each activity. Include sturdy walking shoes, flip–flops for protection on hot sand as well as in public areas like pools, slip–off shoes for ease getting through airport security. 

  • Add padded, comfortable socks to your luggage to avoid painful blisters.

  • Bring along sunblock with SPF of at least 30. Your feet are vulnerable to skin cancer, just like the rest of your body. Smooth on liberally and refresh every 2 hours or after swimming.

  • Don’t forget any necessary medications as well as your custom–fitted orthotics.

  • When traveling for a long time in a plane, bus, train or car, move your feet around frequently to help your circulation. Make the alphabet with your toes for a full range of motion and get up from your seat to stand or walk often.

  • Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.
