Meghan Markle Organizes Slippers for Wedding Guests Royal wedding guests were offered slippers to give their well-heeled feet a rest after a long ceremony at Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel on Saturday. Pretty Little Liars actress Troian Bellisario showed off the comfy white slippers on her Instagram Story following the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. “How amazing is this, because these shoes have come off,” Bellisario, 32, said on her story while holding her high-heeled shoes. “They have slippers for us, slippers. I’m so ready.” As she approached a gentleman handing out the slippers, he could be heard asking the actress if she would like a pair. “Yes, please!” she is heard saying. Providing slippers or flip-flops has become a common and welcome touch in many American weddings and now, it seems, royal weddings too.

April is Foot Health Awareness Month
Did you know your
feet carry you around
115,000 miles in your
life? Keeping your feet
healthy is important!
To keep your feet healthy:
Look at your feet each day with a mirror. Check for peeling, dry skin, or cracks.
Dry your feet and between your toes after you shower to help prevent infections. Then use a good lotion to moisturize your feet (but not between your toes). Don’t leave nail polish on all year. Especially if you are topically treating them for nail fungus. Stretch your feet, ankles, and legs regularly to keep your muscles strong.
If you have diabetes (high blood sugar), see a foot doctor regularly. Be active and eat healthy foods. This can help you stay at a healthy weight. Being
overweight can lead to foot problems.
Make sure your shoes fit well! Wear shoes with a good support and a low heel.
Limit how often you wear flats, sandals, or high heels. If you need more arch
support, try inserts.

Nail fungus (onychomycosis) is most often seen as a white or yellow spot under the nail. Not to be confused with athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), which infects the areas between your toes and the skin of your feet. Nail fungus can also affect fingernails, but it is more common in toenails.
As the nail fungal infection progresses deeper, it may cause your nail to discolor, thicken, and crumble at the edge. It can also affect several of your nails.

If your feet are challenged by peeling or callused skin or odor, give them the TLC they deserve. Your feet spend most of every day trapped inside a pair of shoes. All the moisture and sweat provides fertile ground for bacteria to grow, and the spaces between your toes are even more hospitable for bacteria and fungi. When you don't wash your feet, you're letting that stuff accumulate from day to day. That leads to unpleasant foot odor -- and eventually to fungal infections and other skin problems.
You don't need a special foot wash to clean your feet. Just make sure you give them a thorough soaping, especially between your toes. After your shower, it's equally important to dry your feet (between the toes again) to prevent trapped moisture from letting all that bacteria hang around. Foot powder can keep them dryer longer, too.
For areas that are dry, apply a quality moisturizer, but avoid applying lotion between the toes. Keep that skin dry.
If you do have a more seriou…
