Home Remedies for Dry and Cracked Heels

Home Remedies for Dry and Cracked Heels

Particularly during the summer, we tend to suffer from dry and cracked heels.

Here are some simple home remedies to help you treat dry heels and simple advise to prevent them:

Ripe bananas

Mash one ripe banana and apply it thoroughly on the dry and cracked heels. Leave the mash on for 10 to 15 minutes and then wash with warm and cold water alternatively.

You will experience smooth and slippery heels just after one application.

Olive oil

To heal dry and cracked heels use olive oil for your feet. Before going to bed rub olive oil into your dry, cracked heels and remember NOT to rinse.

After applying olive quickly wear a pair of socks . Leave the socks on overnight, as it help the heels immensely to absorb all the moisture and you will find them to be soft and supple in the morning.

Rosewater and Glycerin

Apply a mix of glycerin and rosewater to your feet almost everyday continuously for 15 days and you will be amazed to see the results .

Your heels will restore their actual softness and will heal tremendously.

Dead Sea Salt

At the end of the day, soak your feet in warm salty water for at least 10 -15 minutes. Dead Sea salts will be great for that.

After drying your feet, apply your favorite foot cream to moisturize. Do not leave your feet open but wear a pair of socks immediately and leave the socks on overnight.

To prevent dry heels:

  • Don’t walk barefoot
  • Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated
  • Dry well after the shower
  • Moisturize regularly
