What if!!! Holding hands, sitting in the lap and your partner have shoe smelly feet???
SMELLY FEET is caused due to a lack of ventilation for your feet. Each foot has more than 250,000 sweat glands, producing lots of sweat everyday. That's a lot of moisture to keep pressed against your feet! People get smelly feet when the perspiration has no where to evaporate – but it is not the sweat that causes the foot odor. Bacteria lives on the skin eats the feet’s sweat, producing Isovaleric acid,which is responsible for causing the odor. Fungus causes Athlete's Foot, which is a skin infection, can also cause smelly feet. Other factors that can cause smelly feet include certain medications, some diseases, poor hygiene, harsh environments, wearing poor-quality shoes and over-wearing shoes.
HOW TO GET RID OF SHOES ODOUR?
Firstly,Wear well-made shoes with breathable features, such as leather uppers or athletic shoes with mesh uppers. The socks we wear are also a matter of concern wear socks made with copper, wool, moisture-wicking fibers to ensure ventilation. Wash your body every day, and if you have a history of foot odor, clean your feet with antibacterial soap.Excessive amounts of sweat will increase your chances for getting smelly. Do not wear the same shoes every day, alternate the shoes so that sole can dry completely, diminishing foul smell of sweat within them. Wear moisture wicking shoes and socks to get rid smelly feet, as well as shoes made of high-quality, breathable materials and maximum sweat absorbing capacity.
One can also use antibacterial or antifungal foot powder on feet, Athlete's Foot cream can also be applied before wearing your shoes.
