We often tend to ignore cracking heels as a sign of natural ageing. Firstly it is visually unpleasant and secondly as they become deeper there is a good chance they get infected and start to pain. In this article we showcase how a 57 year old neighbor has the feet of a 20 year old. So how does she do it? Read on to find out.
First let us take at what happens to cracked heels. The skin becomes dry and starts to become thicker. This prevents circulation of the bloody and the dead skin cells here prevent the skin’s elasticity. A bath will ensure that the skin stays soft.
Mix olive oil, lime blossom and rosemary in a tub with hot water and take a long bath in it. The bath will improve blood circulation. Use a file to remove to remove the dead skin from sole and make sure that it is not too sharp as it will remove excess skin. While creams & moisturizers can be of great help to soften the skin, homemade remedies will provide a natural & inexpensive solution.
