If you have a nickel allergy, you will often find yourself having to remove your accessories. They may cause you to itch, break out in a rash or scabs, or even turn your skin green. No one wants these awful side effects just because they wanted to wear a cute piece of jewelry.

According to the CDC, 10 to 20 percent of the population is allergic to nickel. This is awful for fashion lovers since so many bracelets and necklaces contain nickel.

Accessories are often made with nickel because it is cheap to produce, durable, and shiny. Although the label may list one type of metal, it is most likely a mixed with nickel.

Luckily, there are many Alert1 products that are safe for people with nickel allergies. Your sensitive skin will never be a problem with the Alert1 medical alert wristband. This wristband is made from silicon.

Find the Safe Shoe that Fits Your Style

Shoes are one of the most important pieces that tie an outfit together. Although there are many styles out there, only a few are the safest for seniors. Picking out the correct shoe is an important step in preventing a dangerous fall.

As a senior, these are the features you should look for when picking out the proper shoe:

  • Laces or Velcro. Seniors should not wear slip-on shoes or slippers. Slip-on shoes are unstable. They can slip off and cause a fall.
  • Wide heels. The shoes should have wide heels so there is complete contact made with the floor at all times. High heels are unsteady and increase the chance of twisting an ankle.
  • Textured sole. The sole of the shoe should have texture to create the most grip.

Styles such as sneakers, oxfords, boots, or Mary Janes are all good options for seniors. The best part about these styles is that they are both safe and comfortable.

Rock Your Style

Be a trendsetter. Your distinct individuality will influence all your friends. Show them that safety, comfort and style can always be a part of your daily fashions. There are so many ways to express yourself with your medical alert device, so have fun trying them all.
