Killing that foot-funk starts with good old-fashioned foot hygiene. Start by giving your feet a daily bath, ideally with an antibacterial soap. Even if you’re not bathing your entire body, if you have issues with stinky feet – it’s important to wash your tootsies daily!
Scrub them thoroughly, especially between the toes where bacteria love to hang out and party – think of it as a toe-jam fiesta of sorts! Keep your toenails trimmed and cleaned, and dry your feet completely, as lingering moisture is a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi.
Your choice of footwear plays a pivotal role in foot odor. Choose shoes made of breathable materials like leather, canvas, or mesh. These materials allow for better airflow, keeping your feet cooler and drier. Say goodbye to those synthetic sweat factories!
Or you can wear flip-flops all day, every day, when the weather permits!
Sock Game Strong
If you are having chronic issues with stinky feet, I’d recommend you rock some moisture-wicking socks and switch 'em out if they start to feel damp. Moisture-wicking socks are a game-changer in the battle against foot odor and discomfort. These specialized socks are designed to actively manage moisture and keep your feet dry.
Arrowroot powder is a natural, starchy substance derived from the roots of the arrowroot plant (Maranta arundinacea). One of the primary causes of foot odor is excess moisture, which creates an ideal environment for odor-causing bacteria and fungi to thrive.
Arrowroot has excellent absorbent properties, similar to talcum powder. When applied to the feet, it can help soak up excess sweat and moisture, keeping the feet drier and less conducive to bacterial growth.
Arrowroot can also act as a natural lubricant, reducing friction between the toes and inside shoes. Friction and moisture can create conditions that lead to blisters and skin irritation, which can contribute to foot odor.
Foot creams designed to combat stinky feet, such as Holy Foot Cream, are specialized products formulated to address the root causes of foot odor and provide relief from unpleasant smells. These creams typically contain ingredients that help control moisture, kill odor-causing bacteria and fungi, and provide a fresh scent.
With our Holy Foot cream, we took foot care a step further and added the aforementioned Arrowroot powder & DeoPlex(R) to keep feet dry and prevent funky odor fungus.
DeoPlex(R) is a patented, eco-friendly odor neutralizer that uses natural enzymes created during the fermentation process of all-natural sugar cane yeast. Otherwise known as “saccharomyces ferment filtrate,”
DeoPlex is also a great skin-soothing agent that may contribute to skin-softening and antioxidant-increasing properties. We also added Lactic Acid and Glycerin to the blend to smooth and soften dry, cracked skin - so hasta la vista, crocodile feet👋
Dudes: Smelly feet can be an embarrassing and bothersome issue, but with the right approach, you can overcome it and go from foot fart to foot fetish. 😉. Remember that consistency is key.
