Home remedy for dry cracked heels. Dry/cracked feet are a sign of lack of attention towards your body and one of the worst nightmares for most women.
The skin on the feet tends to become drier as there are no oil glands present there. This dryness causes the skin to crack. Lack of moisturization, overexposure to pollution, and some medical conditions such as eczema, diabetes, thyroid, and psoriasis lead to dry and cracked feet.
Here is a list of 20 simple home remedies that will help soothe and give a makeover to your cracked heels, and let you step out in style.
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons glycerine
2 teaspoons rosewater
Pumice stone/foot scrubber
How To Do
Take a basin of warm water and add raw salt, eight to 10 drops of lemon juice, one tablespoon of glycerine, and one teaspoon of rosewater. Soak your feet for about 15-20 minutes in this water.
Using a pumice stone or a foot scrubber, scrub your heels and the sides of the feet.
Mix one teaspoon of glycerine, one teaspoon of rosewater, and one teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply the mixture on your cracked heels. Since this will be a sticky mixture, you can wear a pair of socks and leave it on overnight.
Wash off with lukewarm water in the morning.
How Often Should You Do This
Repeat this for a few days till your heels become soft.
