smelly feet: the foe we all know + the one we can beat
It’s difficult to talk about + may even be a little embarrassing, but it happens to almost everybody, so let’s talk about smelly feet: the foe we all know. Like most body odor, the unpleasant smell that fills the air when you take off your sneakers is a product of bacteria + sweat. The bacteria that is responsible for your stinky feet thrives in moist environments, which is why the smell is particularly potent after a sweaty activity like working out, playing a sport, getting nervous during a test or even walking outside on a hot day.
That is why when it comes to combating the stink and taking down the “foe we all know”, it is all about ditching the moisture! Let your feet breathe as much as possible in order to let the odor-causing bacteria dry out. If you find yourself needing a little extra help, there are over the counter sprays and powders made for both feet and shoes that help to dry out the bacteria. But the most important thing when combating smelly feet is doing your best to keep them dry + clean.
