With the coming of summers, comes the time when your feet should be allowed to breathe freely. That is to say, unlike winters when your feet are enclosed under shoes and socks, you should try to ventilate your feet during summers. Don’t enclose them for too long as socks and shoes can cramp your feet for fresh air and ventilation, which are extremely important during summers. Also, have two or three pairs of shoes as wearing one pair throughout the week can make your feet prone to infections and bad odor due to gradual accumulation of sweat. If wearing socks, remember to change them regularly. Open sandals are a best during summers. Thus, try to keep your feet open as much as you can, especially during summers.

While you might keep your facial skin regularly moisturized, you might forget the same for your feet.

Use foot powders during summer as they are of a great help.

Follow the above given tips to keep your feet naturally fresh, hygienic and healthy during the summer season in particular.
