How to Choose the Best Running Socks? – About Material

In the article, “How to Choose the Best Running Socks? – About Foot Arch”, we talked about picking the running socks from your foot arch type. In addition, the material of running socks is also critical. Before we understand the materials of the socks, we have to know our feet first, such as: If you have sweaty feet? If you have the odor feet problem?   These are the most common materials in running socks: 1. Cotton 2. Polyester 3. Nylon 4. Odor Control Fiber 1. Cotton 【Advantages】 Good grip. Absorb moisture well. Keep your feet dry. Soft-touch and skin-friendly.   【Shortcomings】 Easy to harden and fluff after washing. Completely inflexible. Poor moisture removal, not easy to dry after absorbing moisture. ​ Cotton is a natural fiber, and it will be a little rough after weaving it into socks. However, slight roughness is needed for runners, which provides a good grip during exercise and effectively reduces the chance of sports injuries caused by slipping during exercise or running. Additionally, feet could sweat a lot easily during exercise. Among many hosiery materials, cotton has the best absorption. It can keep your feet dry and get away from blisters. However, cotton is not without shortcomings. After several times of washing, drying, and being rubbed against other clothes, the socks could easily become stiff and fluffy. “There is no 100% cotton socks in the world.” Cotton is entirely inelastic. We have to add the “Spandex” into the manufacturing process to make socks have elasticity and fit on our feet. If there is less Spandex, the 100% cotton socks will have no elasticity at all. They will slip off easily and become super hard after washing, and it is uncomfortable to wear. A pair of comfortable cotton socks, the ratio will probably be: Cotton: 60~65% Odor Control Yarn: 5~10% Moisture-Wicking Yarn: 13~25% Elastic Yarn: 10~12% ​ These materials’ good balance ratio will help achieve the breathable, odor control, and moisture-wicking functions! (The above data is for reference only. Sometimes it is blended in different proportions due to the effectiveness of the anti-odor yarn) 2. Polyester 【Advantages】 High wear resistance and good elasticity. Not easy to become hard or wrinkle even after repeated washing. Quick-drying. Not easy to breed bacteria or mold.   【Shortcomings】 Not a good candidate in moisture-wicking. Feet could feel wet for a long period of time. Not suitable for long periods of exercise.   Unlike cotton, polyester is "Chemical Fiber." Compared to cotton, polyester has good elasticity. When it is made into socks, the fit and wear resistance will be better than cotton. It is not easy to become wrinkled, hardened, or fluffy after washing. Another advantage of polyester is "quick-drying"! It can completely dry in almost less than 1 hour after washing. The advantage of quick-drying is that polyester is almost "non-absorbent.” When the socks are made of 100% polyester, they will not have moisture absorption at all. If you wear 100% polyester socks for long periods of exercise, your feet will become very sticky and uncomfortable under heavy sweating and lead to get blisters. So, when you choose sports socks, consider the type of exercise is also important! If you prefer to exercise for a long time (such as marathons, mountain climbing, basketball, etc.), we do not recommend wearing 100% polyester socks. (Image:www.unnatisilks.com) 3. Nylon 【Advantages】 Soft-touch and skin-friendly. Strength and durability are better than polyester. Lightweight, which can effectively reduce the bulkiness of the feet when moving quickly during exercise. Good elasticity. High wear-resistant and quick-drying.   【Shortcomings】 Poor heat-resistant. Avoid direct sunlight when drying to prevent fading. Drying speed is slower than polyester.      Nylon and polyester are chemical fibers, but nylon’s smoothness, skin-friendliness, strength, and durability are better than polyester. Nylon can absorb moisture. When nylon is used to make sports socks, the comprehensive evaluation of comfort, durability, and fit properties will be better than polyester. However, nylon is not heat-resistant, so you must avoid direct sunlight when drying to prevent fading! 4. Odor Control Fiber We recommend choosing sports socks with the "odor control" function if you have a foot odor problem. The odor control fibers on the market have various production methods, but they generally divide into two categories: Antibacterial Chemicals: Antibacterial chemicals are used to treat socks. They weaken the cell membrane of bacteria, causing the bacteria to die. Some studies indicated that about 10~15 washes, more than half of the antibacterial properties of the socks had washed away. When these chemicals wash out of socks, they will cause water supply and ocean pollution. Anti-odor Fiber Woven Into the Material: The antibacterial materials are woven into the fiber during production. The antibacterial function would not be lost after multiple washing. ​ CHEGO Sports Socks integrate the advantages of various materials! 5 key points for choosing sports socks, the advantages and disadvantages are compared: Anti-slip: Cotton>Polyester>Nylon Moisture-Wicking: Cotton>Nylon>Polyester Elasticity: Nylon=Polyester>Cotton Wear Resistance: Nylon>Polyester>Cotton Skin-friendly: Cotton=Nylon>Polyester ​ When designing sports socks, we considered the advantages and shortcomings of each material. No material is perfect. Therefore, we take the benefits of each material to develop the most comfortable sports socks! After a series of product development, testing, and proofing, "CHEGO Barefoot Running Ankle Socks" was born. 【Original Design】Use the most suitable material for different parts of your foot! Forefoot and heel: Cotton and the best antibacterial silver fiber blended. We use cotton for the forefoot since it is prone to sweating and for the heel since it is prone to sports injuries. We blend the cotton with the antibacterial silver tech to provide the best solution for moisture-wicking, skin-friendliness, and odor control. Keeping your feet dry and comfortable! Feet Arch: Micro Fiber In the feet arch that requires high fit and high support, we choose “Micro Fiber,” which is an advanced version of nylon. It is more breathable and moisture-wicking than nylon. It has a smooth hand feel, elasticity, support, and durability. Better than cotton and polyester fiber, it can strongly support the feet’s arch and effectively reduce the probability of arch collapse due to intense exercise, thereby improving sports performance! About Silver Tech Fiber: Silver is a naturally antibacterial material. The Silver Tech fiber adopts a complete sputtering process to maximize the performance and quality of silver while retaining the original texture of the cotton. The Silver Tech Fiber passed the NAMSA ISO 10993 tests to ensure the material causes no skin irritation and sensitization. — Shop BAREFOOT Running Ankle Socks: Men’s:  https://chegous.com/barefootmen Women’s:  https://chegous.com/barefootwomen​ —​ You may be interested: // How to Choose the Best Running Socks? – About Foot Arch // // Why Should I Wear the Athletic Socks that Designed Left and Right? // — Reference: https://www.beanbagsrus.com.au/blog/difference-nylon-polyester/ https://microchemlab.com/information/antimicrobial-fabrics-and-textiles https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6126357/

手把手教你挑選運動襪-材質篇

在上一篇「手把手教你挑選運動襪-足弓篇」我們聊到挑選運動襪,首先要了解自己的足弓。除了足弓之外,挑選運動襪還有另一個非常重要的考量,就是運動襪的「材質」。在挑選材質之前,我們必須先考慮到自己的「體質」作為挑選的考量,像是: 是否容易出腳汗? 是否有腳臭困擾? ​ 首先,先跟大家介紹在運動襪中最常使用的幾種材質: 天然棉纖維 聚酯纖維 尼龍 抗菌消臭纖維   一、天然棉纖維 【優點】 1. 能提供運動員良好的抓地力 2. 吸汗效果佳,可讓雙腳保持乾爽 3. 觸感柔軟,較親膚 【缺點】 1. 洗滌後容易變硬與起毛球 2. 完全沒有彈性 3. 排濕較差,吸汗後不容易乾   棉是天然纖維的一種,織成襪子後會感覺到些微的粗糙感。對於運動員來說,正需要這微微的粗糙感,在運動過程中能提供良好的抓地力,能有效減少運動時打滑而造成運動傷害的機率。 另外,在運動過程中雙腳很容易大量流汗,天然棉纖維是眾多製襪材質中,吸汗效果最佳的,因此較能讓雙腳保持乾爽。 但是,棉纖維也不是都沒有缺點喔!在纖維的分類中,天然纖維屬於「短纖維」,經過數次洗滌、脫水、烘乾時與其他的衣物摩擦之下,棉襪容易變硬與起毛球。 「這世界上沒有100%純棉的襪子。」 闆娘踏入織品界的第一份工作,是日本百年製襪大廠「福助」。日本公司制度非常嚴謹,剛進公司的菜鳥都必須參加為期3日的「襪知識研修」。 在研修的第一堂課,闆娘就接受到了震撼教育!製襪廠的老師傅說:「這世界上沒有100%純棉的襪子。」我當時覺得非常疑惑,台灣的襪子賣場,到處都是100%純棉襪的廣告標語,怎麼會沒有純棉的襪子呢?! 其實棉纖維是完全沒有彈性的,為了讓襪子有彈性、得以服貼在腳上,織襪過程中分為「表紗」和「裡紗」。 表紗就是大家摸到的含棉部分;裡紗則是使用彈性纖維,又稱「氨綸」(Spandex) 的「彈性担當」。如果少了裡紗,100%純棉的襪子將完全沒有彈性,會不斷下滑、鬆脫、洗滌後極易變硬,不服貼也不舒適,根本無法穿在腳上。 而當時的製襪廠老師傅告訴我們,一雙恰到好處的棉襪,整體比例大概會是: 棉:60~65% 抗菌消臭紗:5~10% 排汗紗:13~25% 彈性紗:10~12% ​​ 透氣度、抗菌、排汗效果可達到最佳平衡!(以上數據僅供參考,有時會因抗菌消臭紗的有效程度做不同比例的混紡)   二、聚酯纖維(Polyester) 【優點】 1. 耐磨、彈性佳 2. 即使多次洗滌也不易變硬或變皺 3. 快乾的特性,不易孳生細菌或黴菌 【缺點】 1. 吸汗效果不佳,腳掌容易濕黏不乾爽 2. 不適合長時間運動時穿戴   聚酯纖維也稱「滌綸」、「PET纖維」或「特多龍」。和天然棉纖維不同,聚酯纖維是「人造纖維」。 和棉相比,聚酯纖維的結構又更扎實,纖維長度更長。而纖維本身是有彈性的,所以製成襪子時,包覆性與耐磨度會比棉來得更好。洗滌後不容易變皺、變硬或是起毛球。聚酯纖維的另一個特性就是「快乾」!洗滌後幾乎不到1小時即可全乾。 但這快乾的優點,是建立在聚酯纖維本身幾乎「不吸水」的特性上,因此使用100%聚酯纖維製作出來的襪子吸汗效果非常差。若長時間運動時穿戴,大量流汗之下雙腳肯定會變得非常濕黏而不舒服。因此挑選襪子時,也要考慮你的運動類型喔!如果偏向長時間的運動(像是馬拉松、登山、籃球等)則不推薦穿戴聚酯纖維襪。   (圖片來源:www.unnatisilks.com) 三、尼龍(Nylon) 【優點】 1. 手感滑順,親膚性高 2. 強度、耐用度都比聚酯纖維好 3. 重量輕盈,可以有效降低運動時腳掌快速移動時的笨重感 4. 彈性佳,且耐磨快乾 【缺點】 1. 不耐熱,晾曬時須避免陽光直曬避免褪色或變質 2. 乾燥速度比聚酯纖維慢   尼龍和聚酯纖維一樣同屬人造纖維。雖然都是人造纖維,但手感滑順度、親膚性、強度、耐用度都比聚酯纖維來得好。 且尼龍可吸水,因此當使用尼龍纖維製成運動襪時,綜合評比舒適度、耐用度、包覆性,都會比聚酯纖維來得好一些。但尼龍較不耐熱,因此在晾曬時須避免陽光直射,以避免褪色或變質喔! (參考資料:What Is the Difference Between Nylon and Polyester?)   四、抗菌消臭纖維 以上三種纖維都沒有抗菌消臭功能。如果你有腳臭困擾,可以考慮穿戴具有「抗菌消臭」功能的運動襪。市面上抗菌消臭纖維的作用原理非常多樣,但整體來說分成兩大類: 先加工:纖維還是岩漿狀時,就加入抗菌消臭的原料,冷卻後再一起製成纖維 後加工:浸泡/塗覆抗菌消臭原料   「先加工」的製作方式,是將抗菌消臭的原料在製作過程時就融入纖維中,幾乎可說是永久有效。 「後加工」是採用浸泡或塗覆的方式,每經過一次洗滌,抗菌消臭力就會降低一些,約洗滌10~15次左右,帶有抗菌消臭的塗料層就會被完全洗掉,失去其抗菌消臭之功效。有些廉價藥水甚至會使足部肌膚過敏、紅、腫、癢,甚至脫皮。 所以我們在挑選運動襪時,也要了解該襪抗菌消臭功能的製作方式,才能保護雙腳喔! (參考資料:咖啡渣、竹炭、銀纖維,這些除臭襪有效嗎?)   整合各材質優點的CHEGO運動襪 【挑選運動襪6大重點,優缺點評比】 防滑:棉 > 聚酯纖維 > 尼龍 吸濕:棉 > 尼龍 > 聚酯纖維 排汗:聚酯纖維 > 尼龍 > 棉  彈性:尼龍 = 聚酯纖維 > 棉 耐磨:尼龍 > 聚酯纖維 > 棉 親膚:棉 = 尼龍 > 聚酯纖維   我們在設計運動襪款時,考量到各材質都有他們的優缺點,沒有一種材質是完美的,因此很貪心的想要截取各材質的優點來開發出最舒適的運動機能襪!經過長時間的開發、測試、打樣,「CHEGO赤足感機能襪」誕生了。 【業界首創】細分足部不同部位,採用最適合該部位的材質! 腳掌前端與腳跟:天然棉與抗菌消臭效果第一的銀纖維混紡 在容易出腳汗的腳掌前端與容易運動傷害的後腳跟,我們採用吸水性、親膚性最好的天然棉,與抗菌消臭效果第一的銀纖維混紡。不僅強效消臭,還能吸收大量汗水,保持雙足乾燥舒適! 足弓:Micro Fiber 在出汗率不高,但需要高包覆度、高支撐的足弓處,我們採用Micro Fiber,也可以說是尼龍纖維的進階版,比尼龍更透氣吸汗以外,手感滑順度、彈性、支撐度、耐用度都比棉還有聚酯纖維更好,能強力支撐足弓,有效降低因激烈運動而足弓塌陷的機率,進而提升運動表現!   關於半永久抗菌消臭銀纖維 CHEGO採用的銀纖維是少數美國&歐盟皆認定,通過美國NAMSA ISO 10993 生物抗菌試驗,對人體無毒無害的「台灣銀纖維」。(無毒部分請參考本文備註)且該纖維的獨家「真空濺鍍技術」,可以有效破壞細菌細胞膜,抗菌消臭效果接近半永久以外,其生產過程不產生廢水、廢料,是高環保材質喔! — 逛逛赤足感機能襪 男款: https://chegous.com/barefootmen 女款: https://chegous.com/barefootwomen — 你可能有興趣: // 手把手教你挑選運動襪-足弓篇 // // CHEGO運動襪除了分左右腳,連形狀都依腳型打造 // — ​備註: 早在2014年美國和歐盟已禁止紡織品使用銀離子材質混紡。銀離子又稱「奈米銀」,雖有抗菌效果但對人體和生態環境也會帶來不可逆的傷害。 在奈米技術下,銀粒子的徑粒會變得非常小,所以很容易穿越皮膚粘膜進而經由血液循環到達人體內臟等各部位。若是襪品或貼身衣物天天穿戴,日積月累之下可能造成慢性銀中毒,引發血小板減少、支氣管疾病等不可逆的傷害。經美國動物研究發現,在男性方面銀離子可能干擾精子細胞訊號,影響生育能力。女性方面,銀離子則可能進入孕婦胎盤,直接影響胎兒出現異常缺陷。 而CHEGO使用的「無毒銀纖維」和「銀離子」又有什麼不同呢? 我們挑選的銀纖維是與「經濟部工業局紡織研究所」共同開發生產的創新材質,運用高科技濺鍍技術(非奈米)製成,穩定的品質通過「美國NAMSA ISO 10993醫療級生物相容性測試」,是美國與歐盟少數認可的銀纖維。(對測試報告有興趣的朋友歡迎向我們索取)

How Cushion Socks Help Plantar Fasciitis Pain?

What Is Plantar Fasciitis? Plantar Fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain. The feet’ soles bear all the body weight, and the "plantar fascia" is like the cushion of the sole. It can absorb the impact force generated by the ground when walking, jumping, or running. It also maintains the stability of the arch of the foot. If the plantar fascia bears too much impact, some tiny lacerations will occur. These minor lacerations will heal on their own at the beginning, but if you over-stimulate the feet’ soles for a long time, over the years, it will become inflamed and swollen, and "plantar fasciitis" will form one step closer.   The 5 Risk factors Even though plantar fasciitis can develop without an apparent cause, some factors can increase your risk of developing this condition. They include: 1- Age Plantar fasciitis is most common after the ages of 40. As you get older, your foot muscles, ligaments, and tendons are gradually degraded. The atrophy of the plantar fat pad reduces the cushioning effect, which increases the load on the plantar fascia. So plantar fasciitis often occurs after 40 years old.   2- Uncomfortable Shoes Shoes can help disperse the impact of the feet. However, if you wear shoes that are not ergonomic for a long time, such as high heels or sole solid materials, it will invisibly increase the pressure on the arch. It will also cause Plantar Fasciitis.   3- Overexercise Overexercise will cause the plantar muscles and tendons to be overwhelmed. Excessive use of the plantar fascia can also cause plantar fasciitis. Do exercise is good for health, but it should be in moderation.   4- Foot Mechanics Flat feet, high feet arch, or an abnormal walking pattern will affect the weight distribution when you're standing or walking and add stress on the plantar fascia.   5- Excessive Weight Bearing On The Feet People who have to carry heavy objects for a long time have a higher risk of getting plantar fasciitis. Such as movers or construction site workers. Also, overweight people are high-risk groups! Because the feet bear long-term high weight and insufficient exercise, the plantar muscle strength is weak, which increases the burden on the foot and causes plantar fasciitis. (Image: www.verywellhealth.com)   How to Prevent Plantar Fasciitis? The key to preventing plantar fasciitis lies in the two points: Reducing the burden on the feet. Relieving the plantar fascia.   Follow the 5 points to prevent plantar fasciitis properly: 1. Choose the right shoes and insoles. 2. For those with congenital foot structure abnormalities, consult a doctor about wearing suitable shoes. 3. Avoid overexercise and warm-up before work-out. 4. Do what you can when you lift heavy objects. 5. Weight control.   Choose the Right Socks, Say Good-Bye to Plantar Fasciitis! In addition to shoes and insoles, choosing suitable socks is also an important part! We recommend the CHEGO Cushion Ankle Socks for the people who have Plantar Fasciitis or high feet arch: Full-foot Cushion: Minimize feet friction Right-Angle Heel: Full fit and stability Breathable Mesh: Keep feet cool and dry Antibacterial Fiber: Stay away from foot odor No Stitches: Ensure optimal comfort   The CHEGO Cushion Ankle Socks are breathable and cozy. The most important thing is the "Full Cushioned Design" on the soles of the socks. It can effectively buffer the sole’s reaction force when stepping on the ground and protect the plantar muscles all around. We highly recommend it to people who are troubled by plantar fasciitis. It is also suitable for people with high arch feet! The impact of the high arch is much higher than the standard feet arch. Whether the shoes, insoles, and socks, we recommend choosing the footwear with a "cushioning function" to protect the feet fully.   Shop CHEGO Cushion Ankle Socks: Men’s: https://chegous.com/cushionmen Women’s: https://chegous.com/cushionwomen     Suppose you already have plantar fasciitis, in addition to the usual stretching and massage. In that case, You must find a professional doctor for consultation, and a complete course of treatment can reduce the chance of recurrence! — You may be interested: // Are Compression Socks Good for Sports? // // How to Choose the Best Running Socks? – About Foot Arch //

足底筋膜襪有效嗎?

足底筋膜炎是什麼? 在日常生活中,腳掌承受了我們身體所有的重量, 而「足底筋膜」就像是足底的彈簧, 可以吸收腳踩地時地面所產生的衝擊力,還可維持足弓的穩定度。 如果足底筋膜承受過大的衝擊力,會產生一些微小的撕裂傷, 其實這些微小的撕裂傷一開始都會自行癒合;但如果長期過度刺激足底, 積年累月下來就會發炎腫脹,就會近一步形成「足底筋膜炎」。 美國骨科醫學會(OrthoInfo)指出,典型的足底筋膜炎症狀包含: 腳底腳跟處疼痛感向前延伸至足弓處 早晨剛起床時,腳落地的瞬間疼痛感最為明顯,過1~2小時後反而逐漸舒緩 運動後(非運動期間)疼痛感加劇     足底筋膜炎的5大成因 1- 足部機能退化 當年紀越大,足部肌肉、韌帶、肌腱皆逐漸退化,加上足底脂肪墊的萎縮, 當緩衝效果降低,就會增加足底筋膜的負荷,因此足底筋膜炎常好發於40歲之後。   2- 穿著不適合的鞋子 鞋子可以協助足部的支撐力,倘若長期穿著違反人體工學的鞋, 像是過高的高跟鞋、過硬的鞋底材質,無形中增加足弓壓力和足部負擔,長期下來也會導致足底筋膜炎。   3- 運動過度 運動過度導致足底肌肉和肌腱都不堪負荷,足底筋膜過度使用,也會造成足底筋膜炎。 運動是好事,但要適量喔!   4- 先天足部結構異常 若你的腳型是: 扁平足→足底筋膜長期被拉扯 高足弓→足弓過高,導致足跟承受較大的地面衝擊力 長短腳、腳掌內旋等先天足部結構異常,長期下來也會增加足底筋膜的負擔,是足底筋膜炎的高風險族群。   5- 足部過度承重 長期須拿重物者,像是搬家人員或是工地的工作人員,足部長期承受高重量, 就有較高的機率得足底筋膜炎。 另外,體重過重者也是高風險族群喔! 除了足部長期承受高重量外,運動量太少,導致足底肌力較弱, 便會增加足部負擔,導致足底筋膜炎。   (Image: www.verywellhealth.com)   如何預防足底筋膜炎? 預防足底筋膜炎的關鍵在於「減少足部負擔」以及「舒緩足底筋膜」2大重點。 做到以下5點,可妥善預防足底筋膜炎喔: 選擇合適的鞋子與鞋墊 先天足部結構異常者,向醫生諮詢穿著適合的鞋子 對足部高衝擊的運動,適量即可,避免運動過度,運動前應完整熱身 提重物時量力而為 控制體重   選對襪子,跟足底筋膜炎說再見 除了鞋子和鞋墊,挑選適合的襪子也是很重要的一環! CHEGO的「安定感緩震襪」採: 足底全氣墊設計:有效緩衝踩踏的反作用力 90度腳跟編織:符合人體工學,怎麼動都不滑落 蜂窩狀透氣孔:加速排散熱氣與汗水 抗菌消臭纖維:跟腳臭說再見 手工對目:腳趾處無異物感   「安定感緩震襪」整體透氣又柔軟,最重要的是足底的「全氣墊設計」, 能有效緩衝足底踩踏地面時的反作用力,全方位保護足底肌! 非常推薦給為足底筋膜炎困擾的朋友們,也適合高足弓腳型的人喔! 先天高足弓的朋友們,足跟承受的衝擊力比一般人高出許多, 不論是鞋子、鞋墊,還有襪子都建議挑選厚一些,具有「緩震功能」的足部配件,才能完整保護雙腳。 逛逛安定感緩震襪: 男款: https://chegous.com/cushionmen 女款: https://chegous.com/cushionwomen     如果你已經得足底筋膜炎,除了平時的伸展、按摩以外, ㄧ定要在第一時間找專業的醫生諮詢,有完整的療程才能降低復發機率! 點這裡前往:在家即可做的簡單復健(林新醫院提供) — 你可能有興趣: // 手把手教你挑選運動襪-足弓篇 // // 你有腳臭煩惱嗎?用這5招脫鞋再也不尷尬 //

5 Ways to Getting Rid of Smelly Feet

If you have smelly feet, you may feel embarrassed when you have to take off shoes. In this article, we share the five ways to help you get rid of smelly feet!   What Causes Smelly Feet? Before you want to battle smelly feet, you should know what causes smelly feet first! There are two main reasons:   1- Bacteria and Moisture One of the causes of foot odor is that the feet are kept in a warm and humid environment for a long time, providing excellent bacteria growth conditions. When the bacteria rid themselves of wastes from breaking down oils and dead skin cells, bad smells can result.   2- Unbalanced Diet The other reason cause foot odor is the unbalanced diet. Suppose you eat a lot of greasy food or meat, and the intake of fruits and vegetables is insufficient. When the nutritional intake is not balanced, it will be shown in the smell of sweat.   Since bacteria mostly cause foot odor, it is very likely to get onychomycosis and another foot disease if not dealt with in time.   Here are five ways to prevent feet odor:   1- Go to A Doctor  If you already have foot disease, we strongly recommend that you see a doctor. Do not listen to folk remedies; the professional judgment of a doctor is the most accurate!   2- Balanced Diet Eat more fruits and vegetables. Try to avoid greasy, spicy, and heavy-tasting meals.   3-Clean Your Feet Carefully Carefully clean your feet when taking a bath, which indirectly reduces the provision of bacterial food, and also reduces the chance of foot odor!   4- Put Shoes In a Ventilated Place Moisture is also the leading cause of foot odor. The placement of shoes is critical! Be sure to keep the shoe placement area ventilated and dry, which can effectively reduce odor.   5- Choose the Socks Which Are With Cotton Yarn, Breathable Design, and Anti-Odor Material It is the most crucial point! When we choose socks, avoiding nylon socks, and selecting the cotton one. Cotton socks can help our feet keeping cool and dry. We recommend our CHEGO Socks. Not only the socks’ material are cotton, but also mix the anti-odor yarn—besides, every pair of socks with honeycomb-shaped mesh. The breathable design can release the feet’s sweat and heat faster than normal socks.

你有腳臭的煩惱嗎?用這5招脫鞋再也不尷尬!

有腳臭困擾的朋友,遇到需要脫鞋的場合總是尷尬不已。 今天要來跟大家分享,如何有效迅速遠離腳臭!   腳臭2大成因 擺脫腳臭之前,要先了解腳臭的成因,才能對症下藥!   1- 腳處於高溫潮濕的環境,細菌大量滋生 腳掌發達的汗腺稱為「小汗腺」。原本和身體其他部位的汗水一樣,沒有什麼特殊氣味。 而造成腳臭味的原因,大致是因為雙腳長時間處於高溫潮濕的環境, 提供了細菌絕佳的生長條件。這些細菌的食物來源就是腳部的汗水、皮脂、角質。 細菌生長再代謝後,便形成了腳臭味。   2- 飲食不當 另外一種腳臭是飲食不當引起的。 現代人生活忙碌,一忙起來就不太會注重營養均衡,加上外食機會多,餐點大多油膩且重口味, 如果吃進大量肉類,蔬果的攝取量又不足的話,就會讓血液中產生大量代謝「多硫胺基酸」,再由汗水代謝排出。 其實「多硫胺基酸」就是汗臭味的兇手啦!   由於腳臭大多是細菌造成,如果沒有妥善處理,很有可能會染上香港腳、 灰指甲等難纏的腳部疾病喔!   5招改善腳臭 1- 醫生專業診治 如果你已經有腳部疾病,我們強烈建議你一定要去看醫生。 千萬不能聽信偏方,醫生的專業判斷是最準確的!   2-注重飲食均衡 即使外食也要多攝取蔬果,點餐時可以盡量避開油膩、辛辣、和一些重口味的餐點。   3- 仔細清潔雙腳 洗澡時仔細清潔腳部,提醒自己盡量每週去角質1次。 除了將油脂、髒污洗淨以外,也間接減少提供足部細菌食物,當然能減少腳臭的機率囉!   4- 將鞋子放置通風處 潮濕也是造成腳臭的主因,鞋子的存放處當然是很重要的! 一定要保持鞋子放置區的通風和乾燥,自然能有效降低細菌滋生和減少異味。   5- 選擇含棉量高、透氣、抗菌消臭的襪子 這是最重要的一點!選購襪子的時候,避開尼龍等不吸汗的材質, 選擇含棉量高的襪子,可讓足部維持較乾爽的狀態。 跟大家推薦CHEGO的襪子, 除了含棉量高,還有獨家「蜂窩狀透氣孔」,能加速排出熱氣與汗水, 材質則是選用醫療等級的抗菌消臭紗,抗菌消臭的效果幾乎是半永久,數百次洗滌都能維持抗菌力。 CHEGO的襪子,絕對是你對抗腳臭的最佳夥伴! — 你可能有興趣: // 敏感肌也能放心穿CHEGO襪嗎? //  // 運動襪除了分左右腳,連形狀都是大學問!//  — 逛逛CHEGO 男款:https://www.chego-official.com/categories/men 女款:https://www.chego-official.com/categories/women
