Benefits of Soaking Feet in Vinegar

Tuesday, 01 November 2022 00:00

Even though our feet are responsible for so much of what we need to get through life, they are often neglected until they cause us discomfort. Given that our feet often get dry, and can be exposed to harmful bacteria, such as toenail fungus, it is beneficial over the course of one’s life to take proper care of them. Not many people know that soaking feet in apple cider vinegar has many benefits. It can help control infections, neutralize bad odors, soften the skin, hydrate feet, and calm itching. Apple cider vinegar is rich in acids and antifungal ingredients that can help regulate the pH balance of our skin. Simply add a cup of vinegar to a bowl of warm water and soak your feet for 15 to 20 minutes. Repeat this treatment two or three times each week. Though this is a unique and natural part of routine foot care, if you should feel pain or notice something unusual going on with your feet, consult a podiatrist who can diagnose any problems and provide treatment for relief.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Eugenio Rivera from Calo Foot & Ankle Specialists. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Everyday Foot Care

Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. Without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks.

It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before. For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops. Wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent Athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.
