There are many products designed to mask foot odor, but the real causes of foot odor are bacteria and wetness. Wear shoes that allow your skin to breathe and wear cotton socks to help wick sweat away from your feet and keep them dry. Add this simple trick to help keep your feet clean, free of bacteria and smelling fresh all day long.
Things You'll Need
- Hand sanitizer
- Moisturizing lotion
Wash your feet with soap or body wash. This is obvious, but important. A moisturizing antibacterial soap works well.
Dry your feet thoroughly with a towel. Use the towel to dry in between your toes.
Apply hand sanitizer to every part of your foot, including between the toes. Repeat with other foot. Let dry.
Follow up with lotion when the hand sanitizer is completely dry. You need to moisturize after using the hand sanitizer, because the alcohol in it will dry out your skin.
Tips & Warnings
- Don't use any product that irritates your skin.
