Long hikes, exercise, new shoes, hot weather: feet are exposed to a multitude of challenges. There’s one thing that can spoil a long walk or trip: blisters. Foot irritation can form incredibly quickly. Constant pressure or friction can cause a blister to form, for example wearing uncomfortable shoes all afternoon or taking a long walk or a brisk hike can lead to a blister before you know it. Friction or pressure causes the top layer of skin, known as the epidermis, to separate from the bottom layers and this is where the blister forms and fills with a fluid called plasma. The body creates a blister to protect the wound from further pressure or friction. Protect and take care of your feet with the foot care products by Care Plus®.
