19 March 2015
With summer right around the corner, it’s time to flaunt your fabulous feet. If you have cracked heels, well that can turn out to be a complete bummer. Cracked heels are a killjoy when it comes to putting on those summer sandals. But for an instant skin cure for dry feet, look no further than this article. Cracked heels may be the result of frequent exposure, weight gain, harsh cold winters or hot water but they can be banished with these easy to do skin care tips.
- Exfoliate dull and dry cracked heels
Keep your skin from giving away your age with exfoliation. When you don’t take care of your skin, it tends to break and get damaged resulting in you looking older than your actual age. So, exfoliate the cracked skin on your feet with a loofah, pumice stone or small brush. Use your favourite mild body cleanser and wash your feet using small circular strokes to get rid of dead skin cells.
- Hydrate after you exfoliate to cure dry, cracked feet
Fill a small tub or bucket with lukewarm water. Place both of your feet into the warm water for 10 minutes. Pamper your feet with a scented and treat your cracked heels by adding two drops of lemon or lavender oil for an aromatic soak.
- Massage your hands and feet with oil
Rehydrate and rejuvenate your hands and feet with your favourite scented oils or some Dabur Gulabari Rose Water. Rub and massage the oil into your nail bed and cuticles for an extra foot moisturizer to get rid of cracked heels.
- Moisturise your feet with Dabur Gulabari Moisturising Cold Cream
Apply a thick layer of Dabur Gulabari Moisturising Cold Cream to your feet to complete your mini-foot rejuvenation. Wrap your feet in plastic and let it stay for 20 minutes. Remove the wrap and discard. Before heading to bed, cover your feet with cotton socks to seal in moisture and heal cracked heels.

- Stop walking in bare heels
If you like walking around in bare feet on hardwood floors or carpets, you better stop it now. Due to the direct pressure from your weight connecting with the hard floor surface, cracked heels increase and cause an unsightly appearance. To remedy this problem, always wear shoes or thick socks when walking around your house. If rough and cracked heels still remain, soften rough skin by scrubbing some yogurt over it.
