So, summer is just around the cornet (at least in the N Hemisphere – sorry bees in the S Hemisphere). Which means shorts! and pedicures! and sandles/flipflops!
Do any bees have smelly feet? What do you do to combat the offensive oder? I have tried using a cream from Lush, but it does not work so well.
I used to live in FL, and smelly feet was less….socially unacceptable (everyone had some sort of foot funk going on at some point during the year, and everyone wears sandels year-round). But here in VA (in the “deep south” if you will) I get the impression foot oder is no bueno.
Any help? Gracias!

I’ve heard deoderant on the bottoms of your feet can help.

I find that whenever I wear flats (which I do all summer) my feet are naaasty! I baby powder most of the time tho.

I’ve considered buying stock in baby powder during the summer seasons, which for me last 11 months out of the year. I always put a little on the bottom of my feet and the backs of my knees. It dries everything out so it reduces the smell.

@Rock Hugger: have you tried the sily underwear powder from lush? I put it in my shoes, It works in the same way baby powder would but it smells much better!

soak your feet in some brewed tea for maybe 10-15 mins (i can’t remember the exact amount of time) when you’re relaxing at home… i’ve heard it helps.

Alternate your shoes, even sandals, then scrub them (your feet) a few times a week with a pumice or peppermint foot scrub, I find that works the best.

If you wear flats, avoid synthetic liners. Your feet can’t breathe, and the smell that builds up… 😡

OH my gosh, when I wear my flats, my feet STINK when I take them off. I started putting a Dr. Sholl’s (I may be misspelling, sorry) foot powder in my shoes before I put them on in the morning, and it really helps a lot!
