Monsoon foot care tips and remedies
Keep your feet clean
This is an important step that you need to follow during monsoon. After coming from outside clean your feet with warm water and a mild soap or cleanser. Rinse it properly and pat dry. Post this, apply anti-bacterial powder and don’t forget to wear slippers even you are at home.
Moisturise your feet
Moisturising is the next step as it helps maintain the pH level of your skin. Don’t skip to apply moisturiser before going to bed.
No salon pedicure
Most of us go to salons for a pedicure. But try and avoid this during monsoon as there is a higher risk of getting infections as the same tools are used for all. So, take some time out and do it by yourself at home with your own pedicure equipments.
Wear open-toed shoes
Wearing closed shoes increases the amount of moisture. So, open-toed shoes are the best option as it will not allow water to stay in your shoes and keep your feet protected.
This helps in removing the dead cells as it deeply cleans the pores and helps in producing new cells. You can use any good foot scrub or make it by yourself at home.
Besides these, try and use antiseptic gels and creams after washing your feet. If you have wounds, cover it with water-proof band-aids and after coming home from outside, remove it and clean the area properly. Never wear wet socks. Remove it immediately and let your feet dry and wash the socks properly. Also, try and keep your nails short.
