Now you won’t have to read these odor-eating tips…. But first, could you maybe put your shoes back on- and stick around for the following advice?
How does sweaty feet occur? Sweaty feet occurs due to a multiple of factors including hot or cold weather, diet, physical activities, and anxiety. The soles of the feet are completely hairless, but covered in hundreds of little sweat glands.
If you ignore the environment under the foot and in between the toes can become warm and moist, which is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and fungus odor, which may lead to Athlete’s Foot and toe nail infections. We recommend doing the following.
Wash your feet OFTEN: You should keep your feet clean. Use warm, soapy water and wash your feet several times a day if you perspire a lot, smell them. Gently scrub them with a soft brush, wash between your toes, and after they are clean we recommend a quick rinse in cold water, but most important after cleaning is to dry them completely. Than let you feet air out 10 minutes prior to putting your shoes on. A little foot power helps too if you apply it to your toes after the 10 minutes to.
Change your socks often: An easy approach to dealing with odoriferous feet is to change socks three or four times a day. Plus try to always wear socks made of natural fibers, like cotton. Synthetic materials do not absorb well, and make your feet hotter. If you wear socks to bed wear cotton ones, and put a fresh pair of shocks on in the morning.
Good shoe sense: Try to wear a different pair of shoes every day. It takes at least 24 hours for your shoes to dry out thoroughly. It is never a good idea to wear shoes that do not breath, and sandals are a better choice if weather permitting.
You are what you eat: OK, maybe you are not onions or garlic, but they sure can make your feet smell like them if you eat a lot of them. Your body sweats out garlic, spices, onions, so try not to indulge in these as much and you will reduce your foot odor, also if you are a diabetic studies show that high sugar promotes foot sweating. So watch your sugar levels. Coffee or caffeinated products also cause your feet to sweat, and should be drank in moderation, and drink plenty of water.
Your mood: Be calm, and you got this. Your sweat glands in your feet and palms are similar to those found in your armpits and they respond to moods. Emotional Stress can trigger excessive sweating in your feet no matter if it is good or bad. If you are an athlete, after your activity, wash your feet, dry them, change your socks, and put on clean shoes. If you are stressed due to anxiety, you can increase your sweat activity in your shoes, which in turn leads to smelly feet. So try not get yourself stressed out, but if you do – wash your feet, dry them, change your socks, and put on clean shoes. Try smiling more, and use a stress ball when you have anxiety, but you should always seek the advice of a medical professional to assist you with your anxiety in an effort to regulate your body, and mind. Sometimes a simple blood test that also checks your thyroid can tell us that we need to regulate it. By treating the thyroid, we can reduce the stress level in our bodies, and this too helps prevent sweaty feet.
