Cracked heels are the result of extremely dry feet, and can easily be avoided by following these simple tips.
1. Before caring for your feet, make sure they are warm and moistened: soak them in a warm foot bath for 5 to 15 minutes. You can use bath salts for added relief.
2. Wet the pumice stone in warm soapy water, then rub it gently on the dried areas of the feet.
3. Pat your feet dry. Don't rub them, as the freshly pumiced skin can be sensitive.
4. Apply a rich moisturizing cream on your feet. Massage it in to help release the tensions of the day and kickstart your beauty sleep.
