I get cranky when my feet (and shoes) get wet in the rain—especially if I’m en route to a meeting. I don’t like that sticky, damp feeling and my mind goes nuts thinking about all the bacteria trying to make their way into my skin. #germaphobe
The challenge with wearing closed shoes (sexy pumps included!) is to make sure that your feet don’t get stinky. Ever since I heard a guy friend complain about his ex-girl’s feet (he dreaded the moment she’d take off her shoes in the car), I’ve been more conscious of this since you can’t always wear socks with certain styles.
Here’s what I do:
1. Do a weekly foot soak.
I fill a basin with warm water (until it covers my ankles) and add about half a cup of Epsom Salt. Once the salts dissolve, I soak my feet for about 20 minutes. Don’t forget to apply your fave lotion after!
2. Sprinkle some baby powder.
I don’t like the smell of foot powders, so I just dust my feet and shoes with a light coat of regular baby powder before slipping them on. It helps absorb the sweat!
3. Invest in a good spray.
This I haven’t done yet, but I do want to buy the Messy Bessy Yoga Love All-Around Spray, P350. It’s anti-bacterial, free from heavy toxins, and you can use it to deodorize and sanitize anything—your shoes, hands yoga mat, and towels.
With these three tips, I think I’m good to go. I’m really excited to start misting and sanitizing my shoes with that spray, but I don’t want to wait a week for shipping. Who knows where I can find Messy Bessy around the metro?
