Ready to cure your nasty foot sweating problem? Looking for a way to stop the wetness and odor quickly AND conveniently? Easy enough! Just follow my 3 simple sweaty feet cures below and you’ll be well on your way.
I know what you’re going through…and it stinks! Yeah, pun intended – sorry
The good news is, you’re not alone. Having sweaty feet is a pretty common complaint among most people. I certainly dealt with it on a daily basis. If you’re anything like I was, it can be such a nerve racking experience having to take your shoes off in front of someone else. You pray they don’t stink or worse off, the person will see the sweat stains soaking through your socks – yikes!
This is getting a little personal here but before I give you these three amazing treatments, I have to let you know one of my most embarrassing sweaty foot stories. I was in college and went on a date with this girl. Anyway, things were going pretty great and after dinner, we went back to her apartment to cuddle up a bit. When I got through the door she said the place was just cleaned and asked me to take my shoes off. Already, I was getting a little nervous.
I remember she had this dark tile kitchen floor and as I walked across it, I left damp foggy foot tracks. She looked put off by the sight of my sweat tracks immediately.
Things got a little awkward after that and I never heard from her again. Now, I don’t know if things didn’t work out because of my sweaty feet, but I’m sure it didn’t add to my allure at the time.
So look, whatever reason YOU have to stop your foot sweating, it really couldn’t be any easier once you know the simple home remedies that get results super FAST. I’m talking, within hours.
Let’s get started with the first treatment.
Vinegar Foot Baths – Mix together 1/2 cup vinegar and a quart of very warm water in a basin. Soak your feet for 25 minutes. Then, dry your feet well – make sure you don’t forget the spaces in between your toes. Don’t rinse your feet. Let the vinegar really saturate your pores.
Not only does the vinegar act as an astringent, It exfoliates a thin top layer of your foot skin. You’ll experience dryness for hours after this soak. Plus, the acid in the vinegar neutralizes odor causing bacteria deep in your feet. Some people like using apple cider vinegar for this treatment. However, for foot sweating, I prefer white vinegar. It’s stronger and works faster.
As a side benefit, vinegar also inhibits fungal growth so you’ll protect your toenails from fungus and clear up common problems like athletes foot.
Salt Water Soak – Simple? Yes. Effective? Ohhh Yes. Don’t underestimate the power of a salt water soak on your feet. The salt will dry them right up and if you use Epsom salts, you’ll have soft dry skin as well. Exfoliating with a loofah before soaking your feet in salt water makes results faster AND longer lasting. You also want to make sure you use warm water to open up your skin’s pores and allow maximum exposure to the salt.
Be careful if you have any open cuts or sores on your feet. This will burn if you have any open abrasions.
Sage Tea – I saved the best for last. Sage tea contains super high levels of Tannic Acid which is a natural astringent. Add 4 or 5 bags of sage tea into a large basin of hot water and let it steep until the tea is fully dissolved. Then soak your feet for 25 minutes.
The tea will work its way into your foot pores and go to work, drying them up and neutralizing odor causing bacteria. Sage tea is VERY powerful as a long-term foot odor cure. Try this tonight and fall in love with the results.
Just a heads up – after you take your feet out of the basin, they’ll be a little tanned from the tea. Don’t freak out, the tanned color washes right off with a little soap and water. Actually this is used to both treat sweating hands and feet. It works for both pretty well.
Now if you DO have severe sweaty palms, that’s another story. The treatment that cured my own hand sweating was this specific regimen…
