Smell means a lot in a person's life. In the time of the primitive system, by the smell of the body, they found a wife, in modern times women actively use fragrances as an additional weapon to attract a man. But what if the smell of the legs interrupts the fragrance of perfume and deodorant? Then instead of trying to figure out a strategy for getting a man, it's time to think about how to get rid of the smell of feet. After all, an impartial ambre can alienate you from not only a strong sex, but also make it difficult to communicate with women. Do you need it? It is much more pleasant to smell of shower gel, deodorant or soap, but not sweaty feet. How can this be achieved? Let's figure it out. First, we will determine the cause of the unpleasant odor. The fact that human footsteps by the will of nature were the habitat of bacteria that live on their feet and feed on dead cells of the skin. And an unpleasant smell is the waste of the life of bacteria. Everything seems to be clear, but a natural question arises: why do different people's feet smell differently? Someone suffers from unpleasant smells and washes feet ten times a day, but someone does not know this problem.
Why do they smell?
Firstly, the intensity of the smell depends on the shoes,which we carry. Artificial leather, no matter how high-quality it is, is not able to pass air in sufficient quantity, therefore, its legs sweat faster than in shoes made of genuine leather. Secondly, the unpleasant smell of the legs may indicate a person's disease. It can be people suffering from diabetes or heart disease, as they have significantly worsened blood supply to the feet, causing ulcers on the feet. And this is an additional food for our bacteria and an extra reason for an unpleasant smell. The same problem affects the elderly, whose blood in the veins runs not so intensely as in youth. Thirdly, the feet can form a fungus, which also causes additional discomfort and reluctance to take off shoes in the room. Who will like it when people in the company squeamishly drive their noses, and you try to bashfully hide the "fragrant" feet under the chair. Do not hide it. Will not help. It is better to think about ways to get rid of an unpleasant smell. Fourth, do not wear synthetic socks. This reason is somewhat similar to the first, when we advised buying only leather shoes, but somehow everyone forgets about it. People buy expensive exotic leather shoes and put on nylon stockings for them, and then they are surprised that their feet smell bad. Rarely does anyone sin on socks and pantyhose. Most often they begin to doubt the authenticity of the material for shoes or are looking for a fungus. So, we have sorted out a little, why there is an unpleasant smell of feet, how to get rid of this misfortune - we will talk in more detail.
