Jumping feet first into summer

Posted by

Summer can be a hard time for feet, from mozzie bites to cuts from barefoot beach walks. If your feet are not quite up to jandals, we can still protect them in other ways. Here’s what to be mindful of this summer and how Kiwiherb products can help keep your feet healthy and happy.

Bites and stings

In summer your feet come out from their winter hibernation. Even on colder summer evenings, your feet are often uncovered, leaving them vulnerable to biting insects of all types. There’s nothing worse than a mozzie bite on the bottom of your feet.

Cuts and grazes

Barefoot wanderings on rocky riverbeds or playing frisbee in the park, living outdoors makes us prone to cuts, scrapes, and grazes.


Have you ever dropped a can on your foot? Stubbed your toe? Tripped in your jandals? Summer is a prime time for some decent bruising!

Unsightly, itchy toes

As the air gets warmer but your feet are stuck in office shoes, you might find your toes and feet become itchy and uncomfortable.
