Home Remedies For Smelly Feet!
Did you know that home remedies to get rid of smelly feet are really effective? If not, then it’s time you start using them since they can drastically make a change in your feet smell.
Here are some of the super effective natural remedies for stinky feet:
1. Switch To Moisture-Wicking Socks
Socks are one of those things that make your feet really smelly!
So it’s better to change them right now, you must get the socks that are made to wick away moisture.
These are a special type of socks that will help you get rid of excess sweat from your feet, so if you sweat often then they are the right choice for you.
When you sweat while wearing them these socks will absorb the sweat and transfer it to the outer layer of the sock which will help you prevent stinky feet, so why not buy them now?
2. Antibiotic Ointments
Actually, sweat isn’t the real problem, the bacteria developed from your sweat are the main problem.
This means if you can avoid developing sweat you can avoid bacteria which will help you avoid stinky feet
This can be done by adding a baby power as it can prevent sweat formation, or you can use moisture-wicking socks just like mentioned in the last paragraph.
However, if none of these methods work you can use antibiotic ointments, they can’t help you prevent sweating but they will surely help you get rid of bacteria and germs.
Applying it isn’t s hard, you can just apply the ointment on your feet, but make sure to not forget to apply it between your toes, swear and bacteria forms often there.
For best results, you can apply these antibiotic ointments on your toenails too, and make sure to do it before wearing shoes and before going to the bed.
