How To: Cleaning Feet

Having clean feet is important in staying healthy, here are a few quick tips on how to clean your feet thoroughly at home.

Today, I'm going to speak to you about how to clean feet. In the first stage, to ensure cleaning your feet is to bathe them for 10 to 15 minutes in warm water. This may include being in a shower or in a bath itself.

It is important to inspect your feet afterwards, ensure that you haven't got any breaks or cuts in between your toes and in the arched region. Dry your feet thoroughly, especially paying attention to areas between the toes that often are missed. If you don't dry correctly between your toes, there's an increased instance of developing fungal infections and breakdowns of your skin.

Ensure that, should you have any rough or hard skin, it is also important that you wear a clean pair of socks every day, as accumulating sweat within your socks would increase the chance of developing certain skin infections. When choosing the right type of shoe, ensure that there is good room in front of the shoe allowing your toes freedom of movement within. Ill-fitting footwear is a major cause of foot deformity and foot problems.

Ensure that you regularly trim your nails well and straight across, and watch for leaving any spikes that may result in getting growing toenails. Use a nail file to smooth down the edge of the nail after cutting them. This is how we clean feet. .
