Sarah Jessica Parker shares tips for avoiding high heel pain

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker pampers her feet with regular at-home pedicure sessions.

Sarah Jessica Parker protects her feet by slipping off her high heels at any available opportunity.

The American actress is probably best known for her role of Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City, on which she was often seen wearing an array of beautiful stilettos.

While Sarah admits her feet have endured quite a bit over the years due to the extravagant footwear, she’s learnt how to prevent her feet from becoming too sore after rocking them.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing the world’s best shoes, being on the ball of your foot for a long time is gonna hurt!” she told Britain’s InStyle magazine. “I say take them off at every available opportunity – under the table at a restaurant, at your desk, in the car.”

The 51-year-old adds that her feet are her favourite body part as they’ve “never” let her down and she looks after them through regular at-home pamper sessions with her seven-year-old twin daughters Tabitha and Marion, whom she shares with her husband Matthew Broderick.

“I don’t get pedicures of things like that, I just do it myself. My daughters and I take some sand and rub it all over our feet and we treat it like a pedicure,” she said.

However, the Divorce actress will not stray away from luxury when it comes to wearing perfume.

She’s recently unveiled her latest perfume, a luxe fragrance called Stash which combines flirty feminine notes and underlying masculine scents.

“My latest fragrance, Stash, has a stronger, naughtier personality than my other perfumes. It’s also genderless. It’s definitely a rule-breaker - it feels slightly subversive, with black tape across it and a handwritten name,” Sarah smiled.
