Why do our feet sweat?
You have certainly already experienced the sensation of wet feet and a rather disturbing smell. Yes, it is our dear little feet that take us everywhere that suffer the most, in fact, we stress them every day with the many rubs we make with our shoes, following long days or during physical activities, etc. In fact, there is an explanation for the perspiration of the feet. It is linked to the action of the sweat glands located under the feet. It is normal for human beings to sweat, but some people are more affected by it.
However, sweating is an essential phenomenon for the proper functioning of our body. In fact, sweating allows us to regulate our body temperature at 37 degrees. And following perspiration, this is where odours appear. Many people think that the odours that appear are due to perspiration, but in reality odours do not appear from perspiration itself, they are often due to bacteria present on the surface of the skin. These bacteria consume the sweat and produce chemicals that are in effect the result of the bad odours you can smell when you sweat. There are a number of factors that can cause excessive sweating of the feet, such as stress or anxiety, being overweight, a hormonal problem or simply a hereditary problem. But it is often also due to physical exertion, closed shoes or the use of synthetic socks. That is why we advise you to choose socks with natural and not synthetic properties. Synthetic materials can be linked to perspiration problems.
With BellePaga, choose thermalsocks
made from natural alpaca fibres to combat perspiration and keep your feet warm, in comfort and with the discovery of this exceptional fibre.
CARE OF THERMAL SOCKS
Regarding the care of thermal Alpaca wool socks, you can wash them by hand
or machine with a wool programme or at 30 degrees
maximum with the rest of your clothes. Moreover, Alpaca hardly plocks
compared to other materials.
The tumble dryer produces hot air, in large quantities and over a long period of time, and then becomes hot. So if you put your socks in it, they will be confined in a small space and the tiny fibres will tear off. Therefore, the dryer is a real instrument of torture for socks, which will considerably reduce their lifespan. So don't do this to them! Put them out to dry in the open air
. Ideally, dry them on a clothesline.
Thermal socks are worn next to the skin
, so they cannot be washed with bleach or stain removers. Therefore, detergents for delicate laundry
and wool are sufficient to care for your thermal socks. In addition, choose enzyme-free formulas because they destroy all the fibres in the socks.
Sharp or pointed objects can damage the fabric of your socks irreparably and thus prematurely end the comfort they provide. To preserve them, when washing in the washing machine, make sure to close all the zippers
on all your clothes. Indeed, they could damage the fabric when you spin dry.
Don't forget: socks are never washed alone, but most often in groups of two! Otherwise, they become useless... Therefore, it is recommended to always wash them together
and never separate them!
VALUE FOR MONEY
Indeed, quality thermal sock
s cost a little more than just socks! But isn't it better to invest a little more and have quality
socks, than to invest less but have to buy them all the time and not have optimal comfort?
