Feet, by far, are one of the most under-appreciated and over used parts of the human anatomy. It also happens to be one of my least favorite parts of the body.
What can I say? Some people are into feet and I am just not. I appreciate all that my feet do for me; they take me where I want to go. But in general, they are kind of ugly, can be smelly and kind of remind me of the bodyâ€™s version of an old pack mule.
Maybe I just donâ€™t know how to take care of them to make them beautiful. Maybe itâ€™s not my feet but I who is to blame for the appalling state of my feet. All I know is that my feet are drier than the Sahara and somewhat Fred Flintstone-esque. But I am pretty sure they could be prettied up.
Thank God I can hide them in sexy heels and adorable ballet flats. Itâ€™s summer now and those flip-flops are about as forgiving as a bikini on an 86-year-old grandmother.
Here are some tips to keep your feet happy and summer fresh
Soak it to me baby. To reduce odor from sweaty feet, soak your feet in warm water for 15 minutes a few times a week.
Hang it out to dry. For the love of your feet and in the name of stinky feet everywhere, do not wear the same enclosed shoes every day. Shoes need 24 hours to completely dry out. All the cute pedicures in the world are no substitute for feet that smell like they belong to Oscar the Grouch.
Spread the love around. In an effort to make sure that shoes dry properly and do not breed fungus, keep shoes somewhere that circulates air. Throwing your shoes in the back of the closet is a big no-no. Itâ€™s just asking for foot odor problems.
Stay calm and carry on. Give those feet some rest! They carry you around all day, every day. Your feet deserve some appreciation. Put them up and relax. If anyone complains about you sitting down on the job, tell them that I said so.
Whatâ€™s your secret trick for keeping your feet beautiful and odor free in the summer time?
