Now that we are in the midst of summer, it’s time to control foot odor. Here are some tips and suggestions from DealDash.
Foot odor is a big problem for many people. Luckily, there are a few different things that you can do to help with this problem. If you follow these tips and tricks from DealDash your feet will be smelling sweet in no time.
Clean Them Well
This should go without saying – but make sure that you are washing your feet thoroughly in the shower. Many people seem to think that when they are standing in the shower their feet will be magically cleaned with the water that is running down your body, but you really need to soap up those feet and wash them well.
Dry Them Thoroughly
Again, it sometimes seems that people think that their feet will just take care of themselves. Sure, they will dry eventually, but just stepping out onto the bath mat does not automatically dry your feet. The reason that your feet smell bad is bacteria, and wet, moist areas are prone to bacteria growth. So dry those feet off with a nice fluffy, dry towel. Don’t forget in-between those toes!
Put Powder on Them
After you’ve washed and dried your feet take care of them with a dusting of talcum powder. You can also use baking soda or even cornstarch. These powders will keep your feet dry and help absorb sweat.
Don’t Let Them Sweat
Instead of drying out the sweat, how about not letting them sweat at all? Surprisingly enough, you can put antiperspirant on your feet. Yes, the same exact stuff that you put under your arms to control your sweating. You can use a spray, stick, or gel antiperspirant on the bottoms of your feet. You should try to do this right before you go to bed at night. Otherwise, be sure to put on socks after the antiperspirant has dried, otherwise, the bottoms of your feet will be slippery.
Give Your Feet a Soak
There are many different foot soaks that you can try. Some different types of foot soaks include apple cider vinegar, epsom salt, or even tea! Yes, all of these ingredients can each make a wonderful foot soak. Try one of these ingredients each weekend for a great variety of foot soaking fun.
