How can men with sweaty feet wear socks healthier?
First of all, the decomposition of organic matter in foot sweat, especially after foot sweat is mixed with chemical fiber fabrics, will produce an unpleasant pungent odor, that is, foot odor;
Secondly, foot sweat will form a relatively closed humid environment inside the socks and shoes, inducing the growth of bacteria and fungi, leading to beriberi and other diseases;
In daily life, men with sweaty feet should pay more attention to daily foot care. Socks and shoes are the ones that have the most contact with your feet, especially socks that are directly close to the skin of your feet, so wearing a pair of suitable socks is the key to conserving sweaty feet.
What kind of socks are healthier for men?
Men’s feet secrete strong sweat glands, so the demand for hosiery products pays more attention to breathability and sweat absorption. Functional hosiery products such as deodorant socks are very popular. When choosing men's socks, the most important thing is to look at the yarn composition of the socks. To avoid the odor of socks, the natural fiber content should be above 55%. Natural fibers include cotton, hemp, mulberry silk and bamboo fibers.
For sweaty feet, it is ideal to choose socks that absorb moisture and wick away sweat. Socks are made of natural materials, so that they are not only more comfortable to wear, but also less prone to odor and bacteria growth.
Among the natural materials, cotton socks are the best choice for daily wear. Cotton is also one of the main raw materials for socks. Cotton has good moisture absorption, but it is not easy to dry.
Hemp’s moisture absorption and moisture dissipation and air permeability are also very good, heat conduction is fast, cool and firm, and sweat is not close to the body, but the shortcomings of hemp are also obvious: poor elasticity, poor wrinkle resistance and abrasion resistance, and itching;
Mulberry silk men's socks are relatively rare in the market, but their elegant luster and excellent comfort constitute the characteristics of high-end men's socks. The material of real silk is not strong enough and wear-resistant.
Wearing bamboo fiber socks has better perspiration, breathability and deodorization effects, and to a certain extent can prevent athlete's foot and keep warm. The disadvantage is that it is easy to fade, poor abrasion resistance, and inconvenient to wash.
