7 Ways To Avoid Smelly Feet

Do you ever notice that your feet become sweaty and smelly especially in summer or after playing sports?

Due to your feet having the largest amount of sweat glands in the body it’s no wonder that your feet smell. Your sweat glands release moisture, which over time becomes a warm environment that often leads to the development of bacteria causing odour to occur.

To avoid your feet becoming smelly during summer, exercising, stress and hormonal changes, you can follow these 7 simple steps.

  •      Wash your feet everyday thoroughly, making sure that between the toes are also dried
  •      Use an antiperspirant on your feet to avoid sweating
  •      Change shoes that improve circulation to avoid your feet being trapped such as open toes shoes and shoes with mesh to assist in ventilation
  •      Change your socks everyday as well as wearing nylon socks to avoid moisture developing
  •      Don’t wear the same shoes every day to allow your shoes to breathe and dry out
  •      Keep your shoes in a cool environment to avoid shoes becoming damp
  •      Spray your shoes with Glen 20 before and after wearing
