This homemade remedy will treat your dry skin initially, which is the main reason for the heel cracking. Next, it will help your skin to regrow back into a nice, smooth and shiny skin.
Really dry feet and cracked heels solution
For the recipe, you’ll need ingredients that are already in your fridge: orange juice, milk and honey. Orange juice, being loaded with vitamin C, acts as an antioxidant and stimulant of collagen natural production. Milk is packed with vitamin A which is essential for the beauty of the skin. And finally, honey protects the skin from fungi and bacteria and it moisturizes it.
- 1 juiced orange
- 1-2 tablespoons of milk
- 1 cup of organic honey
First of all, you’ll need to put the jar of honey in a bowl of warm water, so it can be easier to mix later. Afterwards, put all of the ingredients in another bowl and mix well. When the mixture becomes nice and smooth, you’re ready to use it.
Next step is soaking your feet for 30 minutes in warm water. While you’re doing that, make sure you also scrub your heels with a heel stone. Now, dry your feet and apply a thick layer of the mixture on them. Massage the dry areas gently for at least 10 minutes.
The final step is letting the mixture act for 45 minutes, so lift your legs and rest a bit (no harm in that, right?). While you’re resting, your skin is absorbing the healing properties of the ingredients.
Wash your feet and you’ll see the results right away. Your really dry feet will be moisturized and smooth, and after a period of using this mixture, eventually your cracked heels will disappear as well.
