Today I bring a post for you which helped me and will surely help you if you have problems keeping your heels soft all around the year. I have an extremely dry body skin (not the face) and I often face problems with dry heels and feet. It starts flaking and cracking, it becomes really gross and painful. But I discovered a very small procedure for myself and have been following it religiously for more than a year now and it has helped me a lot!!
Its very easy and simple and doesn’t take a lot of time, so I thought I will save some of your money that you all might spend on a pedicure in a salon. Well, its totally up to you, as you still can go to the salon for some indulgence and to feel relaxed!! 🙂 Anyways, lets get started with the procedure!
Things you need!
- Foot file
- Body lotion/Body Butter
- Nivea cream
- A pair of socks
- When you take a bath, apply your soap, or body wash or shower gel foam on your heels and rub it with your foot file. I usually rub it from the black sandpaper side, however I use all the sides may be once a month. Doing this daily will take off the dead skin from your heels gradually making them less flaky.
- After the shower, apply the same body lotion or body butter that you apply all over the body, on your heels! Just a little bit more in quantity.
- Wear socks afterwards to protect your feet from dirt, also the socks will help keep the moisturizer in place for longer than usual. This daily moisturization will help soften the skin of your feet and you will start seeing the difference within a week.
- For people who have heavily cracked heels, should apply a mix of Vaseline and Nivea cream on your heels and the rest of your feet generously. This intense moisturization will speed up the healing process and gradually the skin will become softer
In winters it will be easy to wear socks, however in summers, it wont be. You could also wear socks of thin material and may be only during the night. Its totally up to you. But, the key is regularity, follow this every single day, it doesn’t take more than 5 minutes for the whole process. You will certainly thank yourself and me after sometime!! 😀
That was all for today!!
I hope you all liked it and found it helpful!!
Have a lovely day!! XOXO
