In brief: Beach Foot Care

There are a two important tips for beach goers this summer. First, be sure that you apply (and reapply at appropriate intervals based on type of sunscreen and activity level) appropriate amounts of sunscreen.
Second, sand at the beach can be hot (and can hide sharp objects like glass and broken shells) and you should wear some form foot protection to prevent injuries to the feet.
