How to Protect Your Feet at the Beach

It’s been quite a while since humans had feet tough enough to withstand the natural environment. Our ancestors’ feet were huge, hairy, and hard.  Ancient humans could withstand the pressure of walking barefoot on hard surfaces thanks to a tough layer of built-up callouses.  Now, because they are almost always protected by shoes, our feet are soft, narrow, and offer very little protection against the natural environment.  As beach season approaches, it’s important to know how to protect your feet when you do decide to go sans footwear.

Tips for Sexy Summer Calves

I always appreciate my strong, stout calves as a defensive player on the soccer field. Those stable, sturdy legs can kick any ball–or any invading forward–out of my territory. Off the field, I often find myself wishing my legs were just a little bit more svelte. No one will ever compliment me on having thin stems, that’s for sure. Thankfully, even my Rubens-esque gams can still turn heads, as long as I use a few fashion tricks, such as wearing mono-chromatic outfits to make my legs seem longer. In her book Great Legs! Every Girl’s Guide to Healthy, Sexy, Strong Legs, Jane Merrill offers great suggestions for making any set of calves look fabulous.  Here are a few of her tips.

How to Pick Summer Shoes To Flatter Your Feet

Summer is coming!  If you’re like me, my feet are aching to kick off their puritanical coverings in favor of well-aerated sandals, espadrilles, and peep-toe pumps.  (Ideally, these shoes would easily slide off for instant barefoot gratification whenever the whim to feel grass between my toes strikes.)  Because summer shoe styles don’t have to provide a barrier against snow, rain and sleep, they offer more design options.  Will you go for mule kitten heels, lace-up-the-leg espadrilles, or strappy gladiator sandals with three inch heels?  Let your decision be influenced principally by your own body.  Here are a few tips for selecting summer shoes to flatter your feet, legs, and general body type.
