Foot-Care Products and Creams Podiatrists Use On Themselves
Whether you're grossed out or turned on by the thought of feet in general, it pays to take good care of your own.
By supporting you as you walk from point A to point B, your feet withstand a hell of a lot of pressure. As a result, the skin on your feet can be prone to roughness, callusing, and even cracking, as you've probably noticed. And then there's the matter of odor prevention. Stinky feet are a common reality, even in the absence of fungal and bacterial infections that cause odors, as sweat and bacteria from your feet can accumulate in your shoes and give off a telltale scent. Luckily, there are plenty (and I mean plenty) of foot care products that promise smooth, moisturized, baby-soft feet and just as many that deodorize, as well.

But the number of peels, creams, and tools available on virtual and physical shelves can be overwhelming. So, what's a person with barking dogs to do? If you're thinking "ask a pro," you're on the right track. After all, if anyone knows the value of keeping up with a foot-care regimen, it's podiatrists — a group that's studied the ins and outs of foot health as well as how to avoid the aforementioned issues. In other words, you can assume that the foot-care products that podiatrists like using on themselves will be worthy of a spot in your routine. Here's what the foot experts use to avoid calluses, stinky feet, ingrown toenails, and other annoyances.
