Cracked Heels Solution





Cracked heels or fissure heels are an extremely 


common skin condition and ironically very few 


people are worried about them, unless they are 


painful. This is probably because we assume 


that no one is going to check our heels. 


Cracked heels are not only caused by negligence 


but these may occur as a result of over 


exposure to dry environment or deteriorated 


generalized body health. What so ever is the 


cause, only a little care on daily basis can 


give you soft and supple heels that will 


enhance your beauty. Here are a few tips and 


remedies to treat cracked heels fast and 


effectively.


Remove the Dead Skin

The first step is to remove the dead skin; this 


could be done in multiple ways. You can use 


pumice stone or a foot scrub. Rub it vigorously 


against the feet to exfoliate any dead skin and 


make them smooth. You can get a wide range of 


commercially available foot scrubs; however an 


easy and cheap solution is to use a home made 


foot scrub. Two easy recipes are;

Take some ordinary table salt and add few drops 



of any oil. Use this to scrub your feet.

Another option is to use crushed strawberries. 


Just add some oil (any massage oil will work) 


and massage this mixture over fissured skin. 


Now leave it for 10-15 minutes than rinse well.
Moisturize them generously


The most important part of foot care is to 


moisturize them regularly. There is a long list 


of natural products that work really 


magnificently when applied diligently and 


consistently.

Any hydrogenated oil can work wonderfully. Just 



apply twice a day.

Paraffin wax can be melted and used to fill the 


cracks, just leave for an hour or two and it 


will heal even the worst cracked skin after a 


few applications. You can also add small amount 


of any massage oil to make it easily 


applicable.


Another well known home remedy for cracked 


heels is a mixture of rose water with glycerin. 


However, it works only for mild cases.

Shea butter has been used as a natural 


treatment for dry skin and cracked heels in 


different parts of the world for a very long 


time. It can work even for severely damaged 


feet.
