Nobody likes smelly, sweaty feet
Sweaty feet can be really embarrassing. When it’s hot out and you know your feet will be smelly and sweaty, taking off your shoes in front of other people can be something you’re definitely not looking forward to. Most people probably won’t judge you for having smelly feet, but it can give your confidence a hit. Luckily, we’ve got a bunch of tips for you that can either help you prevent your feet from getting sweaty in the first place or help you get rid of smelly feet when you already have them.
Sweaty feet can be easily prevented or fixed – here are some great tips!
Do you want to prevent your feet from getting smelly? Then you should make sure you are wearing the right socks for the right season and activity. When it’s warm outside, it’s best to wear cotton socks as these provide proper ventilation. During the winter months, you can wear wool socks if you get cold feet easily. Don’t wear nylon socks; these can trap moisture and will actually cause your feet to become sweaty more quickly. You can also choose to wear sports socks or other moisture-wicking socks.
Did you know that your feet actually contain more sweat glands than any other part of your body? So, why not spray deodorant on them to keep them from sweating, right? That’s what we all do with our armpits, after all. Use an antiperspirant deodorant and spray your dry feet before bed. Rinse it off in the morning. Do this for three or four days in a row and then dial it down to once or twice a week.
Drinking water can actually help prevent your feet from sweating. Making sure you are hydrated properly helps regulate your body temperature and that means you’re less likely to start sweating profusely.
4. Proper shoes
Just like with your socks, it’s important to make sure you’re wearing the right shoes. When it’s warm outside, it’s best to choose a pair of shoes made from a breathable fabric, like leather or canvas. Materials like patent or plastic will trap the sweat inside the shoe since there’s no proper air flow – so you want to avoid those. Another tip: always make sure your shoes are the right size. Wearing shoes that are too small will lead to sweaty feet much more quickly.
