5 ways to keep your feet free of athlete’s foot this cold season.

If you are a man, do you wash your feet or does the water in your karai get finished before you get to the ankles?
If you are a woman, do you really wash between your feet every time you take a bath?
If your answer is, ‘sometimes’. Then you have probably had to suffer two weeks of fungal infection between your toes.

Your feet smell too, a mix between bread dough and a cow shed. Quite an unpleasant state of affairs that we want to try fix especially with the cold season setting off in such unpredictable weather.
  1. Wash your feet.

You will need;

  • Clean warm water,
  • A pumice stone. I use the black variety.
  • A srubber, you can cut off a piece of gunia and burn the sides to stop it from running.
  • Soap, and water to rinse.

Scrub every part of the foot, use the pumice stone for the bottom, then rinse.

  1. Dry your feet.
If you only dry your body and let the feet dry as you go, you need to make serious lifestyle changes. Get a special towel for your feet. Feet are feet, so unless you are a clean freak, get a darker color so you don’t have to wash it every day.

  1. Avoid infection
Wear the right shoes for the right ground. It beats common sense to wear open shoes in wet weather.
  • Wear the right size of closed shoes to avoid too much sweating.
  • Wear cotton socks to absorb moisture.
  • Don’t walk on bare feet in public bathrooms.
    be like this.
  1. TLC for feet- Foot baths

  • Throw in a tea bag in warm water and soak your feet for 10 minutes. Tea has components that can reduce the possibility of athlete’s foot.
  • Lemon. Pour in the juice of two lemons in your foot bath and soak for 10 minutes. Lemon has essential oils that leave you feel feeling soft and fresh by balancing out the bacteria levels between the toes.

  • Vinegar bath. Apple Cider Vinegar or white vinegar will work just fine.
  1.  Get rid of bad habits
  • Change cutex regularly, and wash your feet before applying a new coat.
  • Wear a clean pair of socks every time.
  • Trim your toe nails often, a straight clip is best.

  • Clean inside your shoes when you come home and let them dry before using them again.
