New Delhi, July 29, 2017: Now that small time showers have replaced the scorching heat of the sun, its high time that you take care of your feet. The romantic season with a charm of its own, carries along the sweet scent of the wet earth, unboxing props like the umbrellas, windcheaters, and raincoats.

However, we are well-acquainted with the damp and swampy side of the season as well. One of the major impacts it has is on our feet. The foot tends to succumb to the humid climate, becoming more prone to fungal infections and athlete’s foot.

On a brighter note, every problem has a solution. So, instead of going all haywire, just take some time off of your busy schedule and show some love to your feet! Here are the

Here are 4 foot care tips for a ‘happy monsoon’ –

  1. SOAKING

Soaking your feet in a bucket of warm water for about 15 minutes might just do the trick! And wait, there’s more! Don’t forget to add some coarse salt, few drops of lemon or orange juice and tea tree oil in the water for a rejuvenating experience.

  1. LOTIONING

We are talking about the herbal homemade lotion! Just follow this simple method – add a few drops of rosewater, lemon juice and pure glycerine in a bowl and mix it all together. Then, apply it on your feet and about an hour and a half later, bask in an invigorating experience!

  1. RELAXING FOOT BATH

Just like your body, sometimes, your foot needs a bath too and a relaxing foot bath is just what you need! Here’s how – simply fill a bucket with cold water. Then add some rosewater, lemon juice and a hint of eau de cologne in it. Now, mix it all and soak your feet in it for a few minutes. This rids off the pungent odor and, cools and cleanses the feet.

  1. DRYNESS CARE

Let alone the wet monsoon, even dryness of the skin has its own disadvantages! As is evident, honey is the best suitable ingredient for dry skin. So, what could be better than a refreshing dryness care therapy! Simply add 2tbs honey, 1tbs herbal shampoo, 1 tbs almond oil in a bucket of warm water and soak your feet in it for about 20 minutes, and indulge in a rejuvenating experience!

  1. FOOT MASSAGE

Massage, with its healing, relaxing and revivifying power, has always been very valuable to human kind. So, don’t forget to stack up some essential oils that might come in handy! And just so you know, a nice mixture of some olive oil, 2 drops of eucalyptus oil, 2 drops of rosemary oil and 3 drops of khus (rose) oil, can prove to be the best relaxing experience when massaged on to your feet. The cooling and revitalizing effect will definitely get the best of you!

As the humidity level goes up during the monsoon season, skin infections become common. Try to stay clean and use anti-fungal cosmetics to fight them, says an expert.

Capital-based dermatologist Navin Taneja shares how to stay away from skin diseases:

* Heat rash: Heat rash is a red pimply eruption. It is caused by sweating that leads skin pores to choke.

Remedies:

The prickly heat will go in a couple of days unless the rash gets infected by scratching it.

Wear loose cotton and linen clothing.

Calamine lotion may help to ease the itching.

* Nail infection: Nails are at a risk of fungal infections during monsoon season. They become discoloured, brittle and dull.
