Stinky Feet? No More!

Smelly feet at the end of a long day of wearing shoes is a common problem. It often bothers mothers who dread the lingering stench when their kids toss their shoes off after coming from school or play. But before we delve into tips to prevent smelly feet, we must know what causes it. Feet have thousands of glands that release sweat. Therefore, when feet are packed tightly in shoes such that no ventilation is allowed, they develop an unpleasant smell. Hence, considering this primary cause of stinky feet, we have some tips for you to overcome this problem:
   1- Keep the feet clean. Practicing good hygiene is the key to odorless feet and shoes.
   2- Keep the feet dry and cool. Make sure to dry the feet with a towel after having a bath or shower. Never slip wet feet in shoes.
   3- Use a foot deodorant or antiperspirant to control the sweat.
   4- Consider using medicated insoles which are more effective in absorbing sweat.
   5- Change socks more often. Especially after an excessive workout, sports, or a long day, change socks to prevent the growth of bacteria which produce a foul smell. Also, use socks that are good for allowing air to pass through them, such as wool, cotton, etc.
   6- Keep rotating the shoes to allow enough air to cross through a pair when not in use. Using the same shoes daily does not allow the air to pass and dry the sweat.
   7- Do not wear tight shoes. Wearing tight or smaller shoes causes feet to sweat more.
Types of shoes sported play an important role in how much sweat is released by feet. Just Kids Brands has various open shoes like sandals, slides, and closed shoes made in mesh to allow air to move freely. Mesh also keeps the shoes lighter and easier on the feet, which helps in reducing sweat. Shop healthy shoes at:
