Model Health Advice
At Kube Studios we are on our feet all day, and so are our clients. They know very well that modelling is one of the toughest jobs, as shown by a study on average incomes and hours worked. Very few models manage to make it to the upper tiers of the industry and the big money that comes with it. Kube Studios is a photography studio based in Manchester, Birmingham and London. They are not a modelling agency but can get you a professional modelling portfolio to use to apply to agencies.
There are many types of modelling that an aspiring model can hope to enter including fashion modelling, catwalk modelling and body parts modelling. All jobs require a model casting. One important concern when doing any job is the effects it has on your health. Effects from work can be psychological, stress, or physical. This post looks at some of the types of problems faced by models who wear the wrong shoes for their foot shape too often.
Callouses are thick and hard areas of skin caused by repeated rubbing on the skin. A callous is an area of hard, thickened skin on the foot that forms in response to pressure (the pressure of modelling), usually due to poor-fitting shoes. When pressure is concentrated in a small area a corn may develop. If the pressure is not relieved, calluses and corns can become painful and require treatment. This experience this happens particularly if your shoe doesn’t fit correctly or you wear uncomfortable heels for too long and too often. The body protects skin tissues from pressure or friction damage by producing an area of hard skin. So unless the reason for the pressure or friction is found and removed, calluses and corns will continue to form.
You can also get in growing toenails from tight high heels if the point of the shoe pushes your toes together too hard. Most people suffer from a foot problem at some point in their lives, and while many are fairly minor, some can be extremely painful and disabling. It is easy to let problems develop and by the time they arrive you suddenly find you can’t walk very easily.
