More often than not, we end up ignoring the skin on our feet. This, in turn, leads to your feet looking dry, damaged, dirty and well, cracked. This problem worsens during the winters. The low levels of humidity in the air affect your feet, leading to parched and cracked skin. But fret not! We are here to help you get rid of cracked heels once and for all.
How, you ask? Well, we have found a really simple DIY foot scrub recipe using some commonly found ingredients in your pantry to completely transform how your feet look. Read on to find the detailed recipe.
You will need:
¼ cup kosher salt (you can replace the salt with sugar)
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 drops of peppermint oil
½ teaspoon rosemary
Step 01: Start by tossing the kosher salt and table salt in a small bowl.
Step 02: Mix the two ingredients together using a clean, dry spoon.
Step 03: Next, add all the three oils in this mixture and stir them well.
Step 04: If you think the mixture is too dry, add some more oil as per your requirements. But if it’s too wet, add more salt.
Step 05: Finish off by sprinkling some dried rosemary leaves on the mixture.
But an easier and quicker way to go about this issue would be to use the Vaseline Heel Cream every night, cover it up with socks and go to sleep. We assure you, you will wake up to super soft and crack-free feet.
