Blisters are a huge problem we're sure every girl has faced more than once in her life. But being the stubborn individuals that we are, we let them grow anyway—gorgeous but ill-fitting shoes, we're looking at you.

But worry no more, Candy Girls because we're signaling the end of blisters once and for all with this piece of advice from an expert. Podiatrist Dr. Jackie Sutera tells MarieClaire.com that it's all about prevention. She explains:

"The best advice I can give is to wear new shoes at home for short periods of time before wearing them all day. This gives you a chance to notice any sensitive spots and also allows the shoe to 'give' a little bit. I do not encourage people to 'break in' shoes. They should fit well at the store, and if they don't, don't buy them! But new shoes are always a bit stiff/tight, so wearing them a little while at a time definitely helps. If you do have sensitive spots, pad them with moleskin, or Band-Aids."

That means your chances of showing up at a party in a pair of shoes you purchased the night before and surviving it with your feet unscathed is pretty much zero. But if you go ahead and do that anyway, as tempting as it may seem, cutting or pulling the skin will do more harm than good and can lead to nastier infections.
