I still want my killer heels!

28 Oct

Hey girls, we know there may be many and grave disadvantages, but this can’t and won’t stop us from wearing our favorite type of shoes.

There are simple tricks that we can put in practice so that we will still care for our body and look fabulous.

1. Look for shoes with thicker soles, so that it would absorb the impact of steps itself, increasing the time we can walk without feeling pain.

2. When we know we are going to be walking, standing or traveling for a long time, we can use a simple trick: bring a comfortable shoe with us. This way we can freely change out of them whenever we feel like it. Sneakers these days have beautiful designs, but flat shoes and low heels are great too, such as the cute and stylish ballet flats.

3. Also, we can always keep some sneakers in our car, and this way we can avoid the muscle ache that comes with driving with high heels, simply changing out of then as we reached our destination

4.Try shopping for shoes at the end of the night, when the foot is slightly swollen. If we will stand in them for a long time it will become swollen, and we will see how it feels, so it wouldn’t be unbearable.

5. Variate between low and high heels, limiting the time we wear them. We won’t get too used to either of them, and we’ll avoid the muscle ache.

For instant relief of aches, it is highly recommend to pamper ourselves with a nice feet massage and soaking it in lukewarm water. It will drive away the feeling of having our feet stuck in a painful pose we can’t get it out of.

Here are some tools to prevent blisters:

Alternatively you can try rubbing vasaline on those highly abrasion areas.

To deal with the nasty blisters these are what you can do:

  • When using the needle to drain the blister make sure needle is sterilized with alcohol or boiling water.
  • Don’t pick at it too much to avoid infection.
  • Try not to detach the skin that covers the blister. It offers natural protection for the raw skin underneath.
  • Aloe Vera is also an effective way to heal the blister throughout. Just rub some on the blistered area with the aloe vera and it should go away in a couple of days to a week.
  • Before draining or treating the blister, buy a special blister plaster and put in onto the blister. This is medicated and will dry the blister, so you may not need to take any further action.

For girls who are experiencing prolong backaches its time you do something about it before it worsen. Try seeking advice from a Chiropractor.

Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicinethat emphasizes diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the hypothesis that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system.

Alright girls, that will be all for this week! Both flat, low and high heeled shoes have their pros and cons, but if we can prevent health issues, then no matter which we choose, we can use them in our life and be stylish with them!Keep the pointers in mind and we shall still look pretty in our killer heels without killing ourselves!

In memories of Alexander Mcqueen let’s look at some her extreme master pieces before we end off…

Love-Hate relationship for high heels

25 Oct

This week girly editor is going to tell you the pros and cons of wearing our killer heels. We all know it’s really painful to wear them at times but we simply can’t ditch the confidence it gives us.

You don’t have to stop wearing them, you just need to wear them the right way. Read on and girly editor will show you how…

First let’s look at why we girls go gaga over high heels:

 The advantages are crystal clear.

Firstly, wearing high heels boost our confidence, makes us look and feel sexy, attractive women that we are.

It also accentuates our curves at the right place by changing our posture, bringing our chest forward and pushing our waistline back.

By wearing high heeled shoes we can improve our height, becoming taller. An advantage especially to shorter women. Heels makes us slimmer by proportioning the body and making the legs longer.

The muscles in our body contract and relax. The calf contracts and adjusts to the angle we keep our feet in. Heels make them shorten and tighten making our legs look like we’ve been working out.

Last but not least, it reflects our personality and can give an air of authority, intimidating others. Great to wear to the office with a power suit as well as on a simple walk with our favorite t-shirt and jeans.

And reasons why we hate heels:

The disadvantages are less visible, however we can feel them every time we stand too much time in those favorite heels of ours or take them off at the end of the day. There are the problems that we cannot see, however, those can be serious ones, causing changes to our body that may be irreversible.

The advantages of accentuating our body only come when we can actually walk in our heels. Be that kitten heels or stilettos, we need to be capable of properly walking in them, without wobbling and limping, making fun of ourselves. We don’t need to do the professional catwalk, however we don’t want to end up falling flat on our face, disgracing ourselves in public.

The damage that high heels can cause to our bone structure is drastic.
Without the right position while walking in heels we don’t just look weird, it damages our spine and knees.

Girly: Do you know that heels that are two inches or higher propel the body forward, turning the simple act of walking into an awkward chore. They also point the foot downward, reducing its ability to flex and absorb shock. This leaves areas like the knees and hip joints to pick up the slack, which can aggravate and sometimes even cause arthritis?

We can easily get ankle injuries, hammertoe or bunions if not wearing a comfortable shoe, even end up with a twisted ankle if the straps don’t fit properly, holding our ankle in the right place.

While wearing heels, our weight is redistributed. By this all our weight is forced on the balls of our feet causing pinching pain. If we don’t watch out and force the pain, thinking it would eventually go away we will end up with Metatarsalgia, a common problem that comes from the pain of joints and bones in the metatarsal.

Knee joint pain increases with 26% while wearing heels, and this only increases, depending on how high the heels.

Often we make the mistake of not breaking in our brand new shoes for a big event by this causing huge amount of pain on the big day, bruises and blisters.

But I know we just can’t give up on heels. Fret not girls! In the next post, read on to find out how we can stand tall without fear of aches and pains…
