4 Foot Tips for Diabetics

for foot tips for diabetics foot care

What Is Diabetic Neuropathy?

Easy way to remember:
Neuro = Nerves Pathy =Disease
Greek & Latin Roots

In layman’s terms diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage.
In diabetes high blood sugars cause damage to nerve fibers, most often in the person’s legs and feet.

What Does This Mean?

Often people with diabetic neuropathy have 2 major issues:

1. Difficulty feeling their feet
The nerve damage can cause numbness in certain areas or the whole foot.
2. Difficulty healing
Often there is also a slow of blood flow (blood brings oxygen and healing agents)

What Can Happen

 

1. Difficulty feeling feet: If a person with full sensation in their feet steps on a nail, the immediate pain will make a person get off the nail. However if you do not have full feeling in the bottom of your foot, you may not get off of the nail as quickly as needed. Someone who has peripheral neuropathy may suffer injuries in their feet they do not feel.
2. Infection: Decreased blood flow, means that there is also a decreased ability for oxygen and other healing agents to get to wounds quickly. In diabetic neuropathy simple cuts can become sores, and sores can become wounds and wounds can be very hard to heal.

So What To Do?

There are several things patients with diabetes need to be mindful about.

4 Foot Tips for Diabetics

1. Wear shoes, even if it is just slippers around the house. This will protect your feet from injury. Also wear shoes that fit. Shoes that are too small may cause friction and wounds on parts of the foot.
2. Carefully wash and dry your feet! You always want to make sure your feet are dry in the crevices of your toes. Fungal infections can form in small, damp places!
3. Be careful about nail salons basins. Some times proper precautions are not taken to clean the basins and bacteria can be left in the water jets of the basins. With diabetic neuropathy you have to be extremely careful about not getting infections in your feet.
4. If you are cutting your own nails, cut them straight, and do not cut the skin around them. Try to not cut too close too your skin to avoid cuts and bleeding.

8 Tips To Make Your Wedding Day Makeup Last

It’s Your Big Day!
Your Makeup Has To Stay!

The question was asked: How can I ensure my makeup lasts throughout my wedding day?

This is a day to remember, so much planning, so much prepping but it is finally here!

Your mind could be on your groom, but since you know he will always be there your mind then focuses on something that may run that day… your makeup!!

It’s always good to have a plan of how your makeup will last throughout your entire wedding day. We have compiled some tips that our brides find most useful!

8 Tips To Make Your Wedding Day Makeup Last

1. Select a great makeup artist! One that will listen to what your wishes are and give you ideas from prior wedding experience!
2. Start with a clean, washed face. No matter how wild your bachelorette party was, this is a new day, new face, new life… 😉
3. Have your makeup artist use a good primer on your face to keep makeup in place
4. Use a setting spray to set your makeup. If you do not have that, a brief mist of regular hair spray will work as well.
5. Waterproof eyeliner and mascara are a must!
6. If you would like to get a facial before your wedding, do so 3-4 days before. Sometimes facials can bring out impurities that can make your skin vulnerable temporarily. 3-4 days allows all of that to occur before your big day.
7. Try to blot tears, on wedding day; avoid wiping tears to ensure makeup does not smudge and run onto the tissue
8. Pick an amazing maid/matron of honor to have touch up blush, eyeliner and lipstick.

Remember: Your makeup is essentially for the pictures! When you are doing a makeup trial, take pictures in great lighting get a gist of what you will look like!
