Although we prefer to walk in flip-flops 24/7 on a tropical resort, unfortunately, due to the weather, we regularly have to put our feet in sneakers or boots. But feet that are ‘trapped’ in shoes have a major disadvantage: sweaty feet. Do you suffer from this? Maybe these tips can help you!
- No more socks
Have you been walking all day at school, playing sports or strolling through the city while shopping? Then you want to take off your shoes immediately when you get home. And while you’re at it, remove your sweaty socks too. This way your feet can get some air. You can also rinse them in the shower or take a nice foot bath.
2. Let your shoes ‘breathe’
Don’t keep wearing shoes if you don’t have to. It’s important that you let your shoes ‘breathe.’ You can do this by putting them outside for a while.
3. Use deodorant
Did you know that you can also use deodorant to prevent sweaty feet? Spray a little deodorant on your feet and/or in your shoes to make them smell fresh and prevent sweat. You can use your regular deodorant for this, but also a special foot deodorant or cream.
4. Switch shoes
To let your shoes ‘breathe’ every now and then, it’s smart to switch shoes. I’m not saying you should buy three pairs of new shoes right away, but switching sneakers, boots or flip-flops every now and then will certainly prevent sweaty feet.
5. Wash your feet
Washing sweaty feet not only flushes out sweat and bacteria, but also cools the skin and reduces further sweating. Aim to wash the feet at least once, if not twice, a day. Dry the feet well, especially between the toes. Damp feet allow bacteria and fungi to thrive.
