Scent Of A Foot

Jun 21, 11 Scent Of A Foot

We know this is hard to talk about. Yes, it’s humiliating. Maybe even more than Jennifer Lopez’s nip slip, but the first step towards a solution is admitting you have a problem. So it’s time to ‘fess up and do something about your pecueca. Or pezuña, or olor a pata; whatever you want to call it, it boils down to the same thing: your feet stink. Don’t cringe, mija, rejoice because there is actually something you can do about it. Feet sweat a lot because there are so many sweat glands on them, but the sweat is not the direct culprit for the stank. The nasty smell is caused by bacteria (or in more severe cases, by a fungal infection), and Oprah’s health guru Dr. Oz has just the thing to get rid of it: tea. Black tea, to be more accurate. Tea contains tannins, which have astringent characteristics and help close pores to reduce sweat and kill the odor-causing bacteria. What you need to do is brew some black tea (about 4 or 5 bags in a quart of water). Let steep for about 15 minutes, and once the water has cooled down soak your feet for 30 minutes. Do this every day for one week and you will definitely notice a big difference. Good thing, too, because sandal season is here and you need to be able to wear your new espadrilles with complete and utter confidence.
