Because stuffing your feet into closed-toed shoes increases sweating – since your feet can’t breathe. And each foot has about 125-thousand sweat glands. Now, I’m not suggesting you wear flip-flops in winter. Just switch from cotton socks to wool socks. Wool absorbs twice as much moisture as cotton and wicks it away from your feet. Then, when you get home, soak your feet in a warm foot bath with a couple drops of orange essential oil. The oil has antimicrobial properties that prevent the growth of isovaleric acid – which is what causes your feet to smell like cheese.
