I’m one of those people that come summertime, always have at least two extra band-aids tucked away in my purse for when after wearing my sandals all day long, start to really rub and irritate the skin on my heels, toes, ankles, etc. The mini bandages don’t exactly look chic, and always fall off anyways, so I’ve tested different methods to prevent annoying rubbing and irritation from my seriously cute shoes. Call me crazy for being so thorough with this, but you’ll be grateful to have used these items instead of having to deal with every painful step once the rubbing and blistering begins!
Julia’s recommended products:
Band-Aid Active Friction Block Stick: It’s invisible — you can’t really get any better than that!
Johnson & Johnson First Aid Secure-Comfort Cloth Tape 1 in x 5 yds: not the most glamorous of solutions, but when your feet are in bad shape, this will protect those injured spots from getting way worse.
Nexcare Liquid Bandage Drops: almost invisible, this has a “snakeskin” like effect and will give you a tougher layer for shoes to rub through. Put this one before you start to have issues, if you feel your sandals may be problematic.
Sweaty Pedi: Not only do I love the name of this product, but it is multi-function; it absorbs sweat, protects your feet against blisters, and gets rid of bacteria.
