Posture Perfect

How Your Shoes Affect Your Body

Proper posture is something that’s been drilled into us from a very young age. Sit up straight! Don’t slouch! Unfortunately, millions of people around the world just can’t seem to fix their posture and end up suffering from issues like back pain and discomfort.

While you might not think it, your shoes can contribute to bad posture by changing the way we stand and walk throughout the day – which in turn affects the rest of our body.

Wear Shoes Made for Your Body
Take a moment to look at your feet? Are your aches high or low? Do you under- or over-prone your foot when you walk? All of these are factors that affect which shoes you should wear to walk and stand comfortably.

Invest in Orthotic Sandals
Just like you, we love wearing thongs in Summer. Unfortunately, they’re not the most supportive type of shoe out there – or are they? Zori Orthotic Sandals and Thongs are a great option for people who want to enjoy the freedom of sandals, with the support of high-quality orthotic shoes. Not only do they give your feet the customised support you need to walk comfortably, but they also make good posture easier to achieve.

Speak to A Professional
Bad posture hurts your body in the long run, that’s no surprise. However, if you’re experiencing severe pain in your back or feet while standing or walking, don’t be afraid to reach out to a professional. They’ll be able to pinpoint the cause, recommend a treatment, and advise you on the right foot-wear and products for your body.

If you’d like to learn more about how to take of your feet, your posture, and your health, reach out to the Neat Feat team today and we’ll be happy to help.

How to Take Care of Your Feet This Winter

It’s finally time for hot cocoa, warm blankets, and chilly mornings. We love Winter! Our feet? Not so much. If you want to find out how to take care of your feet this Winter, read on.

 

Keep Your Feet Dry

Wet feet are a breeding ground for odour-causing bacteria and potential infections! Keep them dry by carrying an extra pair of shoes or socks if you plan on dashing through the snow at any point.

 

Wear Clean, Well-Fitting Shoes and Socks

Shoes that are too big or too small could cause painful blisters. Add sweaty feet and warm boots into the mix and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. A good way to avoid this is by making sure your shoes and socks fit perfectly. Keeping them clean also ensures that you won’t be at risk for nasty smells and even nastier infections.

 

Make Moisturising A Priority

Cold weather tends to strip the moisture from our skin and leave it feeling dry, cracked, and tight. The best remedy for dry skin is adding and locking in urea-based moisturisers. You can do this with high-quality foot care products like Neat Feat’s Foot and Heel Balm or our Natural Body Moisturizer. Both of these products will deeply hydrate your skin to leave it feeling softer and smoother than ever.

 

Exfoliate Away!

Because our skin tends to be so dry during the colder months, it’s important to get rid of the dead skin cells that inevitably build up from constantly wearing thick socks and boots. Our Pumice Stone Exfoliator helps buff away dead skin so that your moisturisers and heel creams can do their job!

 It’s Time to Take Care of Your Sole

Do you feel dead on your feet at the end of the day? Most of us have extensive skincare or health routines, but very few of us take care of the things that keep us moving day after day – our feet!

 

Why You Need A Regular Foot-Care Routine

Corns, callouses, and cracked heels are painful conditions that get worse when we don’t take proper care of our feet. However, taking care of your feet doesn’t have to take an hour out of your day. All you need is a simple three-step routine with these three products:

 

Pumice Stone

Pumice stones are lightly-abrasive foot exfoliators that gently buff away the dry, dead skin on your feet. They also effectively reduce the size and severity of painful callouses and corns.

 

Foot Scrub

 Exfoliation isn’t just reserved for your face! A great foot scrub is relaxing, hydrating, and gentle enough not to strip away your skin’s essential oils. If you exfoliate regularly, you’ll be able to prevent the build-up of dead skin cells and impurities that lead to infection and dryness.

 

Heel Balm

After buffing away the dead skin, you need to apply a product that hydrates and soothes your skin. Locking in moisture is imperative to keep your feet hydrated, soft, and comfortable every single day. You need a heel balm that’s made of high-quality ingredients that are kind to your skin – and that’s exactly what you’ll get from Neat Feat.

 

How Often Should You Do This Routine?

Repeating these three steps twice a week will leave your feet feeling soft, smooth, and ready to walk another day. Take a look at our extensive range of foot-care products by clicking the link below!

Neat Feat Senior B Rash Prevention Cream

Walk With Confidence

Incontinence is an uncomfortable occurrence that can often lead to further discomfort and pain with
the appearance of rashes. The skin around the area is sensitive and can’t quite handle the acidity
in urine, which eventually leads to these rashes. When we move around, the inflammation worsens
due to friction, leaving the skin feeling even more uncomfortable than ever.
These types of rashes are known as Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis (IAD), which is an
especially prominent occurrence in older adults.

What is Incontinence?
When the body’s ability to control the release of urine or stool is compromised, we refer to it as
incontinence. This is a common phenomenon that often leads to the abovementioned IAD. Though
these rashes aren’t permanent and may often clear up within a few days, leaving it untreated may
worsen the already-uncomfortable area.
Because the respective area of inflammation is commonly subjected to high-levels of friction due to
walking, the skin may start bleeding and lead to more serious infections. Accompanied with
moisture from the incontinence, we often sweat around the area as well, exposing the skin to
potential fungi development.

How to Identify an Incontinence Rash
Under normal conditions, the skin acts as a barrier against foreign bodies on the exterior and
interior of the body. As we age, however, the skin loses its suppleness and the barrier becomes
damaged, which is when the skin becomes vulnerable to exterior irritants – in this case, urine
acidity.
Symptoms of an incontinence rash include:
– Redness around the area exposed to urine
– Inflamed, irritated skin
– Itchy, burning sensation accompanied with red lesions
– Tenderness

 

 The Senior B Rash Prevention Cream
Neat Feat’s Senior B Rash Prevention Cream is an excellent preventative measure created by
doctors to avoid these rashes from forming in the first place! While many other creams provide
temporary relief after the rashes have already formed, the Senior B Rash Prevention Cream was
formulated to act as the barrier of protection against acidity.
Containing moisturizers and emollients, the cream effectively neutralises the acidity of urine and
returns the skin to its normal pH balance. It also leaves the skin feeling soft and supple, while
inhibiting the growth of fungi.

As a non-prescription cream, anyone can head to the local pharmacy and start reaping the benefits
of soft, treated skin without the discomfort of constant burning and itching around the area. Simply
clean and dry the area of inflammation, shake the bottle, and apply the cream liberally around the
affected area.

Get your Neat Feat Senior B Rash Prevention Cream today and have one less discomfort in
your daily life.

Don’t sweat summer! Beat head-to-toe perspiration the easy way

The warm sun on your skin, days at the beach with the grandkids, Christmas gatherings, meals outside on the deck listening to the birds chirping – these are all things to love about the summer months.

But there’s one downside to the hot weather: perspiration. Any amount of gardening, running around with the grandkids or even walking can leave your underarms wet with sweat. And no matter how much fanning you do or cold water you drink to stay hydrated, perspiration is a given as the temperatures rise.

Sometimes even the simple act of getting dressed or blow-drying your hair can make you drip bucketloads (particularly in northern Australia, where the humidity is extreme). But it’s really not surprising given that everyone has between two and five million sweat glands across their body. The real problem is when your skin becomes irritated by the sweat, causing a rash or chafing.

But thankfully, there are products available to help. Neat Feat, for example, has developed the world’s first anti-perspirant for feet, along with a complementary range of highly effective products to help prevent sweating from head to toe. The items were formulated by New Zealand physicians to not only assist with perspiration but also help with the associated issues caused by sweating.

From rashes and chafing to clammy hands, facial sweat, foot odour and bacterial and fungal infections, these products could keep your summer substantially free of perspiration.

Body 

Even though we might not want to admit it, we can sweat literally anywhere on our bodies, from our feet right up to our head (yes, even between our buttocks, our legs and beneath the breasts). But you probably don’t want to go rolling your normal deodorant around everywhere!

Fortunately, there is a special antiperspirant that was designed specifically to help solve this problem. The soothing cream incorporates an effective antiperspirant in an emollient to reduce the amount of sweat produced and is perfect for those areas where skin surfaces rub together and become inflamed.

As a bonus, it also helps to prevent fungal infections such as tinea or intertrigo (a rash that usually appears between folds of the skin), which tend to occur in those warm, moist areas of the body.

Face 

You know it’s getting hot when the sweat starts dripping down your face. First it’s the little beads on your top lip and then as the temperature rises you start to feel dampness on your eyelids too. For those who live in colder parts of the world, this probably seems bizarre, but in Australia it’s definitely not uncommon.

That’s why Neat Feat created a product specifically for your face. The soothing gel formulation evaporates rapidly from the surface of the skin after being applied, leaving behind an active, antiperspirant ingredient that helps prevent sweating in the first place. It’s best applied before makeup (it also acts as a great primer!), moisturiser or sunscreen, so the product remains on the skin for longer. All you have to do is spread it over your forehead, upper lip and back of the neck, making sure to avoid the eye area and the scalp.

Hands  

Just like the rest of the body, your palms can sweat. Often this is when you’re in a stressful situation, but it can occur simply because you’re too hot. And when your hands feel wet and slippery, playing any kind of activity – such as golf, tennis or riding a bike – can become quite difficult.

The Hand Saver was created to solve this problem, with the antiperspirant ingredient helping to prevent excessive perspiration of the hands. Incredibly, it leaves the hands dry for up to three hours – even after they’ve been washed (which, let’s face it, we’ve been doing a lot of lately!).

Feet

While we tend to notice our underarm sweat the most, our feet actually do a lot of perspiring throughout the day. In fact, most adults will sweat about a quarter of a cup into their socks or shoes a day, so it’s really no wonder why so many people suffer from stinky feet!

But there is a deodorant you can use on your feet to help prevent not only excessive foot perspiration, but eliminate odour and minimise the risk of contracting nasty foot infections that are more prevalent in summer, such as tinea. The deodorant contains moisturising agents that help prevent feet from cracking, while the aluminium (the most effective antiperspirant available) assists with the sweating issue. Simply roll it onto your feet and you’re good to go!
