We often forget to give the treatment for our feet that they rightfully deserve since they support our body all day long. Like any skin on our body, they too need to be treated.

For a quick solution against bacteria, I also like to use antibacterial hand sanitizer on my feet by rubbing it until it dries. It also helps when I already feel my feet becoming really damp from all the sweats. Since antibacterial hand sanitizer contains lot of alcohol, it makes my feet dry afterwards.
Apply sunscreen that you usually use for your body up to your feet. Your feet also get exposed to the sun so don’t forget to protect it from the nasty UVA and UVB rays.
Apply moisturizer to your feet but avoid the area between your toes because they can get too moist. If you can see them clearly, usually your feet get dry easily but because they’re so far away from our eyes we often neglect them. Choose a moisturizer that is specifically targeted for the feet because usually they’re more nourishing than body lotion.
Exfoliate dead skin cells every week by using foot scrub as this will help to smooth rough skin especially around your heels. Smooth calluses with a foot file or pumice stone before you apply any foot scrub product.
