Beauty Hack: Wear Heels All Night
Posted on July 25 2017
Whether you wear heels to work, for a night out, to a wedding, or just because, most of us can agree that it gets uncomfortable after a couple hours. So do you opt for comfort over style and wear flats? Do you take your shoes off and go barefoot? I do neither. Here's how.
I stumbled upon an article a while back that promised a night of high heels and no pain. How can this be?? Well first, if your shoes are ill-fitting or cause a blister on your ankle, this is not the hack for you. If you have neither of these problems, but your feet hurt after a while of standing on your toes it really is a simple fix!
It all starts before you put your heels on. Take a long-lasting tape (I use athletic tape but honestly scotch tape will work) and tear off about 3 inches. If the tape is too thick, you can cut it in half length-ways.
From there, take your middle toe and ring toe (your 3rd and 4th toes) and wrap the tape around them, taping the two together.I also suggest nude medical tape if your heels are of the strappy variety.
This hack works because of the way the nerves in your feet are laid out. The pain isn't in these two toes, but the pressure applied relieves the pain in the ball of your foot. I swear!
Try it out and let me know what you think!
