SMELLY FEET?? Don't Worry! Here's The Best Solution Even Medical Professionals Do!

The feet and hands contain more sweat glands than any other part of the body (about 3,000 glands per square inch). Feet smell for two reasons: you wear shoes and your feet sweat. The interaction between your perspiration and the bacteria that thrive in your shoes and socks generates the odor.

 Any attempt to reduce foot odor has to address both your sweating and your footwear.
Smelly feet can also be caused by an inherited condition called hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, which primarily affects males. Stress, some medications, fluid intake and hormonal changes also can increase the amount of perspiration your body produces.

Here's the best tip:


Bubbly Baking Soda and Citrus Soak

Baking soda has too many uses to list here, but when it comes to foot odor, it can be a true miracle worker. It naturally helps control odor, kill bacteria/fungus, and softens your feet to boot. Lemon is an astringent, which will help with excessive sweating causing food odor, plus it has a wonderful fresh scent.
You will need…
-¼ cup of baking soda
-8 cups of water
-Juice of one lemon
-Something to soak your feet in
Directions
Place ¼ cup of baking soda in your foot basin, and then cover with approximately 8 cups of toasty (but not hot) warm water. Squeeze in the juice of one lemon, sink your feet in, and give it a little swish. Soak for 15-20 minutes or so, and then dry completely.

Very Vinegar Soak

Apple cider vinegar might not seem like the first thing you want to submerge your stinky feet in, but it actually does a nice job at getting rid of odor. It creates an acidic environment that bacteria have a hard time thriving in, reducing the count and subsequently the smell.
You will need…
-1/2 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
-5-8 cups of warm water
-Something to soak your tootsies in
Directions
Fill a foot basin with 5-8 cups of warm water and add ½ cup of white distilled or apple cider vinegar to it. Submerge your feet, swish the mixture around, and soak for 15 minutes twice a day. Dry completely when you’re finished-you can rinse them in cold water afterwards if you want.
