Just like hands and face, our feet also require care, but are you taking enough care of them?
Our feet are the most neglected part of our body although they are one of the most used parts of the body. We walk and run daily and our feet sweat and smell bad. Don’t they?
While you might be looking after your hands, it is essential to pay heed to feet as well, because dirty toenails, and rough and smelly feet give bad impression no matter how radiant your face is or how beautiful you look.
Caring for feet isn’t a big deal. Following are some simple ways to pamper your feet:
Wash Your Feet Daily

A suggestion here is to wash the feet and spaces between the toes thoroughly in order to keep them from dirt and bacteria. Don’t forget to clean the toenails while washing your feet.
Keep Your Feet Moisturized

In addition, keep your shoes clean. Another way to get rid of odor is to use foot powder which keep the feet odor-free.
Keep Your Feet Dry
Damp or wet feet are prone to getting fungal infections and Athlete’s foot. They can cause rashes and itchiness.
