Rains do bring relief from the sweltering heat but that’s followed by more pollution, more dirt and more mud damaging your skin a lot!! Believe it or not, your hands and skin are the most sensitive part of your body. And with monsoon comes the hassle of trudging through dirty pavements and water filled roads. Yes, your feet have to tolerate the brunt of all and hence you got to take extra care. So, note down the precautionary measure while enjoying an energizing break from the intolerable warmth with the onset of monsoon.
Take an Extra Pair of Socks:
The easiest way to protect your feet from the dust and dirt is to wear socks and carry one spare pair of it all the time. Wet feet can lead to fungal infections. Socks will thwart your feet from getting soggy and incurring infections of any sort. Make sure to remove your shoes and socks if they are dry because healthy feet need air. This is one of the most important measures to perform during the monsoon season.
Keep them Dry:
Fungus tends to develop in damp and moist environment. It is always advisable to wear open footwear. Closed footwear like boots and shoes hold water for a longer time creating a damp environment for your feet. Once you get home, make sure to completely dry your foot.
Disinfect Your Feet:
Smelly feet are a result of dampness, bacteria and dead skin cells. The best idea is to soak your feet in warm saline water. A solution of black tea and cold water can also work wonder. Anti-fungal powders are available in the market. Use them between the toes.
Once a week, indulge yourself in pedicure. Soak your feet in lukewarm water for 15 minutes. Add a bit of soap wash or lemon juice to the water, cleanse you feet and nails with scrapper. Apply nail cream and DO NOT PUSH THE CUTICLES. Toe nail fungal infections are very common during monsoons.
Personal Suggestion – My little tips are to give feet and hands a gentle massage using moisturizer every night.
