When winter comes most women end up doing the same thing: letting go off foot care – mostly hidden this time of year – and do not treat them as they should. The result? Thick skin, dryness, flaking, and odor , and in more severe cases cracks and even bleeding.
To catch up with your feet and get them clinking for spring and summer we’ve prepared a short list of simple precautions that you can – and should – have not only during winter but throughout the whole year to make the foot skin soft and healthy.
- If you need to wear shoes, give preference to good quality cotton socks. They absorb perspiration better and protect feet from bacteria and fungus that cause odor and fungal infections;
- Ventilate and dry your shoes after wearing them, leaving them for at least two hours in an open, ventilated area;
- Opt for comfortable shoes, made of leather and lined;
- Prevent! If you sweat a lot, use products like medicated foot powder, antiseptic and deodorant.
