Our feet sweat just as much in the winter months as they do in the summer months. Our feet are bundled up in socks, boots, and slippers, and often end up wet after snowblowing or shoveling snow. We may not notice the sweat as much since we're not going barefoot and our winter foot gear soaks up the sweat.
Here are a couple of easy tips to keep your feet dry during the winter months:
- Thoroughly wash your feet daily with an antibacterial soap and water, making sure to clean between the toes.
- Carefully dry your feet, then sprinkle with cornstarch, foot powder, or an antifungal powder.
- Wear socks made of synthetic materials that keep moisture away from the skin.
- Change your socks during the day.
