How To Get Rid of Dry, Cracked Heels

How To Get Rid of Dry, Cracked HeelsSoak feet for 5-10 minutes in a warm foot bath made with 1 cup milk and 5 cups warm water.

Create a homemade foot scrub by putting 4 tablespoons salt or sugar in 1/2 cup oil. Baby oil, sweet almond oil or coconut oil or even vegetable oil works well.

Massage the homemade foot scrub in a circular motion into bottoms of feet.

Scrub bottoms of feet with the pumice stone. Rinse and dry feet.

Before you go to bed that night, try this tip from beauty guru Paula Begoun: rub a Stridex pad over dry areas of feet. Stridex, a product found in the acne section of any drugstore, contains 2 percent salicylic acid so it’s a great exfoliant for the feet.

Apply moisturizer thickly on feet (do not wash off Stridex). A super-rich moisturizer like cocoa butter, Eucerin (my favorite) or even Vaseline works best.

For even better results, apply a thin layer of Keralyt Gel, an OTC salicylic acid, on your feet along with a dollop of Vaseline.

Pull on socks and keep them on throughout the night for at least 4 hours.
