Apart from being extremely unappealing, having dry feet is also extremely painful. This is an extremely common problem and one that is super annoying. Amirite? But don’t lose hope just yet, there is a super-effective way to deal with this issue — foot masks (yes, they are a thing).
Apart from washing your feet with a gentle body wash and moisturising them daily, also you need to add a foot mask to your feet care regimen. Similar to face and hair masks, foot masks deliver concentrated moisturising nutrients to your feet to keep them soft and supple. Wondering where to find one? How about in your kitchen? Yes, that’s right. Ahead, how to make a super-effective DIY foot mask using ingredients from your pantry.
DIY foot mask recipe:
You will need:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon cocoa butter
- 3 capsules of vitamin E oil
How to make:
Step 01: Start by melting the cocoa butter in a pan
Step 02: Add the olive and vitamin E oil to the melted cocoa butter
Step 03: Mix all the ingredients together until they are completely blended together
How to apply:
After washing your feet, rub a little bit of the mixture onto your feet and massage. Apply a slightly thicker layer on your heels as they need extra nourishment. Cover your feet with a pair of socks and leave it on overnight. Next morning, wash your feet as usual. Try this foot mask 2-3 times a week for better results.
However, if you want faster results, the Vaseline Moisture Therapy Heel Cream is your best bet. It is a deeply moisturising cream that provides quick relief from cracked and dry heels. Additionally, enriched with the unique ‘Barrier Repair Complex,’ this cream improves the skin’s barrier function to prevent your heels from cracking or drying in the future. Awesome, isn’t it?
