Natural ways to help with foot odor

Many of us have foot odor due to many reasons. A good breathable pair of shoes or sneakers and socks will help. But when your tootsies need extra help try these solutions:

Give your feet a nice soak in water with a bit of vinegar in it. Even a tablespoon of vinegar in 4 inches of water will do. Soak for 10-20 minutes then rinse off with water only.

Rub some natural oils such as aromatherapy oils on your feet before bed and wear socks over that so you won't ruin your sheets.

Give your feet a foot rub with some salts any salts scented or unscented will do. What you want is to scrub them so as to take off some dead skin then run with a good smelling oil or cream. If you don't have any creams use some baby petroleum jelly you can find in any dollar store.

Spray your feet with foot spray before wearing your shoes. Your shoes are very important if they smell so will your feet. It is hard to tell if they smell sometimes. Try the smell test on shoes after you have worn them. spray or disinfect if needed.

Always wash your feet well when taking showers or bath. No, they will not get clean cause the water is dripping on them, they need to be washed like the rest of the body.

Happy feet are also manicured feet go get a pedicure! Even guys get them. But make sure the place practices good hygiene and disinfects things for each customer.

Enjoy your good smelling pampered tootsies!

Professional help, on best volleyball shoes?Does anyone who play volleyball know what would be the best volleyball shoes. I really want new shoes that will be comfortable and not hurt my feet.

I've owned Mizunos and Adidas sneakers, each with the name brand's intended volleyball sneaker. I do not know which models specifically I used. Each pair of these volleyball specific shoes retails for close to $100. My other sneakers I have purchased for volleyball were an array of cross training sneakers. Nike, Reebok, and Adidas.In my experience, the volleyball specific sneakers were less comfortable than a pair of cheap cross-training sneakers.My recommendation is that you go to your local Sears / JCPenney / Foot Locker, or Sports Authority, and check out any cross-training sneaker on sale or clearance.

How to select a good walking shoes? Coul dyou recommend me on a good pair?

People are always asking for shoe recommendations. I don't like to make specific shoe recommendations because everyone's foot is different and people have different walking styles. But there are a few basics for selecting walking shoes: 1.Look for a low, supportive heel that rounds (or bevels) in. A thick heel or one that flairs out will cause your foot to slap down rather than roll. 2. A walker's foot hits heel first and then rolls gradually from heel-to-toe. So, you will need a flexible sole and more bend in the toe than a runner. 3.Next, look for a shoe that is light weight and breathable. The last thing you want is the clunky heavy leather walking shoe.
4. The most important thing of course is a shoe that fits properly. Be sure your foot has enough room in the toe box. There should be a thumbnails width (or about a half inch) between your toes and the end of the shoe.5. Go shoe shopping at the end of the day or after your walk when your feet may be slightly swollen. 6. Do not shop when you are in a hurry. 7.Wear your shoes in the house for a few days to try them out.

Help choosing the right bike shoes. The proper bike shoes can make a big difference in my performances..Please help me choose a good bike shoe!

Alright , no problems my friend. I'll explain the basics of cycling shoes, the dynamics of what makes them great and why you might need a pair.Number of things to look for when buying a biking shoe: 1.A Stiff Sole - The best cycling shoes have a thin, stiff, carbon fiber sole.?The stiffer the sole, the less energy you'll lose between your foot and the pedal. 2.A Good Fit-?You should buy your shoes about a half-size smaller than your normal size to ensure a proper, snug fit. 3.Breathable Materials - ?When your feet start to sweat, it's best to be wearing a shoe that is made with a moisture-wicking material. 4. Easy On, Easy Off?With Velcro and hook and loop strap closures it's very fast and easy to adjust the tightness of a shoe, a necessity when on a long ride with varied terrain.
