Dealing with cracked or dry heels can be and extremely unpleasant and painful issue.
Lucky for you, there is a completely natural solution to this problem and the secret hides in one ingredient that can be found in every household around the globe. That miraculous ingredient is baking soda!
The powerful antiseptic properties of the baking soda make it an excellent choice for treating feet infection, reducing the hardness of the water thus creating a perfect environment for soaking your feet.
Baking soda is an inexpensive ingredient that can help you successfully treat various skin issues and help you heal your cracked heels. You will need:
- 3 tablespoons of baking soda
- 4 liters/135 oz of water
Just pour the baking soda in hot water in order to dissolve it and soak your feet in the solution. Keep the soaked for 15-20 minutes. Once you feel that the feet have softened well, use a foot scrub or a pumice stone to exfoliate them. Rinse with warm water and dry them well. Apply a moisturizing agent, Vaseline or homemade foot cream and put on cotton socks. The best time to perform this procedure would be before you go to bed so the cream can act overnight.
You will see the first positive effects right after the first treatment but in order to completely heal your heels, you will need to repeat the process. For optimal results, do this daily for a week, take one day pause and repeat like that for 3 cycles. You will end up with silky smooth feet.
