Cracked heels and feet plague many people, young and old. If you spend much time running around without socks and don’t use a lot of moisturizer you will likely end up with some rough looking feet. The question of the day is how do you cure cracked feet? Thankfully I know the answer to this!
About this time every year my feet come out of their shoes and I realize they are not ready for sandals. Thankfully, with a week of proper care they can be beach ready!
Step 1: Soak
Before going to bed, soak your feet in warm water with some epsom salt. Add about a half a cup of epsom salt into your foot tub. Soak for 10-20 minutes.
Step 2: Scrub
Step 3: Apply Moisturizer
There are many fancy foot lotions out there but any thick moisturizer will work. Try coconut oil and your feet will love you. It also fights foot fungus and bacteria. Your feet would LOVE this moisturizer.
Step 4: Thick Socks
Slip on some comfortable socks and head to bed! Let the moisturizer do it’s work over night! You’ll wake up with much softer feet in the morning and you’ll wonder why you haven’t been doing this every night.
Step 5: Repeat
Repeat this process until your feet are soft and healthy. For average feet this will be about 3-5 days. If you have overly dry and cracked feet it will take longer. You will want to continue this regimen about once a week to keep the cracked feet from returning.
