Mustard and Wax – if you are having a hard time getting rid of the cracks, take some paraffin wax (or a broken candle), add a little mustard oil and then heat the mix (gently). Soak your feet in lukewarm water, then scrub them and apply the mixture. Put on some socks and go to sleep. This remedy will bring you great results in only 2 weeks when done once every 2 days.
Over Ripe Banana – leave a banana out of the fridge until its skin has turned into black. When it’s squishy, peel the skin, mash it well and apply on the heels. Allow it to act for about 20 minutes and then rinse with moderately warm water. If your heels are very cracked, you can also add some mashed avocado, which has great essential oils.
Aloe Vera – rub your heels with Aloe Vera gel. Alternatively, you can also use the gel with 1 tsp. of basil paste, 1 tsp. of turmeric paste and a pinch of camphor. It will do wonders to your heels.
Oils – as we all know, one of the most commonly used oil for treating skin conditions is olive oil. Its vitamin C is refreshing and nourishing for the skin, so before going to bed make sure you apply some olive (or sesame) oil on your feet and massage them gently. Put on some socks and allow the oil to penetrate the skin overnight. In the morning, take a brush and scrub your heels until they are soft.
Lemon Scrub – after soaking your feet in warm water and scrubbing them, take a freshly squeezed lemon and add some Vaseline to it. Apply the mixture on dry heels and rub until the skin has absorbed all the paste.
Rosewater – to soothe the skin and help it heal take some glycerin and mix it with an equal part of rosewater. Moisturize your skin regularly with this mixture.
