Habits that Haunt
Back when our ancestors walked barefoot, foot fungus wasn’t on their radar. Believe it or not, foot fungus is a modern disease, and it’s most likely your shoes that are to blame, especially if you skip the socks. Going sockless strips your feet of a critical sweat-absorbing layer and creates a hotbed for fungal growth.
To prevent fungal growth, be sure not only to treat your feet, but also your shoes, as they can carry remnants of fungus long after the infection may have cleared from your skin. Make sure to treat all the shoes in your closet since the fungus is spread from shoe to shoe. To treat, we recommend sprinkling some Zeasorb-AF in every pair to kill the spores, and, unless you’re wearing sandals with lots of breathing room, don’t skip the socks.
