Expert foot care tips for the monsoons

Our feet are exposed to rough weather changes all through the year. During the monsoon especially, the moisture in the air can lead to skin problems and irritation.

A little attention and care is all it takes to keep your feet and the skin safe and smooth and infection free.

Here are some quick tips.

Keep them dry

Always try and keep your feet dry. Exposure to constant moisture makes them vulnerable to cracks and infection. The best way is to keep a pair of shoes at the workplace so you can change into them if you got drenched in the rain. Or, dry your feet thoroughly and keep them out of closed shoes if you don’t have an extra pair around.

Foot cleansing

Wash your feet with soap or liquid body wash as soon as you step into the house, because during this season, there are high chances that a ton of germs are entering the home along with you.

Keep your toenails trimmed

Keep your toe nails trimmed as long nails accumulate more dirt. During this season, the muddy streets can become a nuisance. The best way to keep your feet clean and healthy is regular cleaning and pedicures. 

Foot scrubbing

Soak your foot for about 10-15 minutes while taking a bath. After soaking in hot water, scrub your feet with foot scrub then apply a moisturizer as it helps your skin rejuvenate and replace new cells with dead cells.

Don’t step out with an open wound

If you have open wounds do not step out of the house without covering the area with a bandage. Avoid stepping into puddles when you have an open wound on your foot.

Wear open, strappy footwear

Avoid closed footwear because it will hold water and cause soggy feet. Instead buy open toe or strappy footwear. Or, buy some special rain wear for the season.

To avoid smelly shoes and feet:

-Do not keep your footwear or shoe rack under the bed. Let it be left in the open so that it dries out and doesn’t smell.

-It’s always good idea to have two pairs of footwear for the monsoon, one for traveling with and another to wear at the workplace.
