Cracked heels and blackened feet can happen to anyone. Normally, the shoes that you wear, particularly during the hot and dry summer months will cause your feet to dry out and could cause them to crack. There are a few products on the market to help heal dry feet but there are very effective home remedies that you can try as well.
Shaving cream to help heal dryness
~ Slather your feet with a generous amount of shaving cream.
~ Mix together equal parts of Listerine and warm water.
~ While you still have shaving cream on your feet, wrap a towel that is soaked in the
~ Listerine mixture around your feet and allow it to sit for about half an hour.
~ Using the same towel, rub the shaving cream off your feet. This will remove calloused and dry skin as well as the blackened or discolored skin that feet typically get when they are dry.
~ Apply lotion to your feet for extra moisturizing.
~ You can use olive oil, sesame oil, coconut oil or any other vegetable oil.
~ First you should wash your feet well in soapy water and scrub them with a pumice stone.
~ After you have done that, dry them well. Apply the vegetable oil you have chosen to use.
~ Put on clean socks and have them on all night while you sleep. Notice the difference in the morning.
~ Repeat the process until all cracks are gone
