A blister or other irritation on the feet can form at incredibly fast. Wear uncomfortable shoes for just a few hours and you’ll already have a blister. Another threat to the health of your feet is tick and insect bites. These occur mainly on your feet and lower legs! What to do to prevent blisters and insect or tick bites? Protect and care for your feet with Care Plus® foot products!

WANT TO PREVENT BLISTERS? USE BLISER PLASTERS!
Protective socks? Check! But if you go for a long walk or trek there is still a danger for your feet lurking: blisters. Blisters can make standing or walking torturous. If that pressure or friction is not relieved with a good blister plaster, such as the Blister Plasters from Care Plus®, the blister may burst open. You then have an open wound that can easily become infected. Blister plasters reduce pressure and pain and can prevent infection. The Blister Plasters from Care Plus® come in the varieties Small, Medium and Finger & Toe. The right plaster for every blister!
WHAT ACTUALLY CAUSES BLISTERS?
If the skin is constantly plagued by pressure or friction, a blister may develop. Due to the friction or pressure, the upper skin layer (epidermis) comes loose from the underlying layers. A blister is formed on that spot, filled with tissue fluid. The body makes the blister to protect the wound from even more friction or pressure.
TIPS TO PREVENT BLISTERS
You can prevent blisters by wearing properly fitting and comfortable shoes. But even then, a long walk or trek can lead to blisters. You can prevent this by first treating your feet with Foot Powder from Care Plus®. This foot powder absorbs moisture, dries the feet and helps to prevent blisters. The Foot Protector Stick is also a real lifesaver for your feet. This nourishing cream contains DEFENSILen shea butter and provides immediate relief from friction or pressure, thereby preventing blisters.
PREVENTING BLISTERS? PREPARE YOUR FEET FOR THE JOURNEY!
If you really want to minimize the risk of blisters, use the Care Plus® Camphor Spray every day beginning three weeks before a walking or hiking trip. Treating your feet daily with this foot spray hardens the skin, preventing blisters. Because prevention is the best cure!
