We do everything to take care of our skin and hair during the rain but ignore the feet. Apart from experiencing perspiration and stickiness due to moisture in the weather, the risk of fungal infections in the feet also increases. In this season the feet remain in contact with the accumulated dirty water due to prolonged rains. This type of infection not only spoils the skin of the feet but also damages the skin cells.
Benefits from turmeric properties
Turmeric has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Applying turmeric paste around the toes can help you fight fungal infections in the monsoon.
Use Multani Mitti
Multani Mitti gets rid of dead skin cells. It increases blood circulation and also improves skin health. Multani mitti, neem and lavender oil can be used to make this paste.
Lemon or onion lotion
Lemon contains antioxidants. It also has anti-bacterial properties. But if your feet are itchy due to rain, then mix lemon juice, vinegar and glycerin and apply on the feet.
Mehndi and Gulab Jal paste
To prepare this paste, mix the henna powder and rose water thoroughly and apply this paste well on your toes and leave it to dry for a while. Mehndi is a natural remedy and has such antiseptic properties.
Whenever you get stuck in the rainy water, wash the feet with vinegar water when you come back home, it will protect your feet from any kind of infection.
