6. Your Feet

You may think your feet are getting clean during your shower session just because all the soap and water from your body are running down into them. Sorry to disappoint you, but that’s not enough for a thorough cleaning.

After showering, make sure you give your feet some special attention. Scrub them, especially the sides and bottoms, using a pumice stone at least once every few days. Don’t forget to dry them, either.

It’s important to not forget about drying them, as common foot conditions, such as plantar warts, toenail fungus, and athlete’s foot fungus, can be caused by excessive moisture. While the aforementioned conditions are usually caused by excessive sweating, they can also be triggered by not drying your feet properly after washing them.

So make sure you thoroughly towel off your feet after bathing. It only takes a few seconds to remove excess moisture from your feet.
