Foot Care Tips:

Hair - - Foot Care -

This is the time when kids like to wade in rain wa­ter and adults are tempted to stroll bare feet on sandy beaches, but it’s a big no no! Imag­ine those tiny bac­te­rial mon­sters wait­ing to at­tack through the pores on your feet. • Shun closed footwear as they can trap mud, dirt and un­wanted el­e­ments. Be­sides, flip flops are the best to let your feet breathe. • Make sure to keep your feet cleansed and dry to pre­vent fun­gal in­fec­tions. • Keep a spare pair of shoes and socks at your work­place. Drenched feet can lose their shield­ing layer and be­come prone to al­ler­gies. • Keep your toe nails trimmed and clean to avoid mak­ing it a home for viruses, bac­te­ria and fun­gus. • To treat ath­lete’s foot, mix a few drops of hy­dro­gen per­ox­ide in a bucket of luke­warm wa­ter. Soak for 15 to 20 min­utes, then rinse and dry com­pletely. • Dust Can­did anti-fun­gal pow­der be­tween your toes to pre­vent rashes and fun­gal in­fec­tions. • Use a foot scent be­fore bed­time. • Soak your feet in warm wa­ter to which a few drops of es­sen­tial oil are added. This keeps smelly feet in check.
