Radiant face, perfect hair, gorgeous attire, classy footwear, but oops! What about those cracked heels? They just made your looks’ scorecard zero.
A very common issue in winters is cracked heel that can spoil your image of a perfect, pretty woman. Moreover, they not just impact your looks, but they are painful with symptoms like redness, itching, inflammation and peeling skin, and finally bleeding. Before they take a nasty shape, control them with these following simple home remedies.
1. Vegetable Oil
From olive, coconut, sesame to any other hydrogenated vegetable oil, pick any to cure cracked heels. Before you go to sleep, soak your feet in water and then use a pumice stone to scrub them. Wash them off and pat dry. Now apply any of the vegetable oil generously on heels and soles too. Wear a pair of socks and leave the feet to soak the oil overnight.
When it is about softening rough skin, perhaps nothing works better than lemon due its acidic property. To get the best result, take warm water and mix lemon juice in it. Now soak the feet in it for 10 to 15 minutes. Using a pumice stone, scrub the heels. Follow it with a thorough wash and dry them with a towel.
