Brush away the sweat and odour
Your feet smell because being covered in shoes and socks, they form sweat. Bacteria build up on the skin break down the sweat and result in foul odour. Invest in a good foot scrub such as a pumice stone or loofah. Remove your shoes after you come home and scrub your feet using a sweet smelling scrub.
Prepare a DIY pedicure session
To get the smell off feet and keep it clean, soak them in water. It helps fight bacteria and odour. Add some antibacterial and antifungal herbs to it like rosemary and sage which help to control sweat production in the sweat glands. You can also put lemon juice and some fragrant essential oil to the water. Soak your feet for 15 minutes and completely dry.
Use antibacterial soaps
Wash your feet with an antibacterial soap such as Lever Ayush Cool & Fresh Aloe Vera Soap. It has lemongrass and aloe vera that are packed with antibacterial and soothing properties. It keeps your feet fresh and sweat-free.
Apply lavender oil before going to bed
Make a habit to wash your feet and applying few drops of Lavender oil before you hit the sheets. The oil helps kill the bacteria and keeps your feet smelling good. Massage your feet with lavender oil and leave it overnight.
Rub an antiperspirant
Before slipping into your shoes, rub an antiperspirant roll on your feet. It prevents excess sweat and stink. Use Rexona Powder Dry Underarm Odour Protection Roll On on the ankles and toes and wait for it to dry out before wearing your footwear.
