How to Heal Cracked Heels with Natural Ingredients?

Cracked heels are popular during summer. All that water touching your heels cause them to break the skin and be grumpy.

Even though this condition seems like a regular thing every summer, it could lead to serious complications.

The cracks in the heel have the ability to grow bigger and peel back the protective layer exposing vulnerable flesh. Conditions like a fungal infection and foot ulcers can be the result of it.

Leaving your cracked heels untreated means that you leave them exposed to all the bacteria they come in contact with. Especially while you are at the beach walking with barefoot.

There are expensive treatments for this, but let me tell you that the cracked heels will return after a while.

Therefore, I would want to give you a few natural ingredients you can use to fix your condition.

Let’s go:

Lemon Juice

The first method for repairing cracked heels with lemon juice is applying it directly to your heels with a washcloth.

The second method is diluting the lemon juice with water and let your foot soak up in there.

Both of these methods are effective. Don’t forget to scrub your heels using a coarse cloth to remove the dead skin.

Olive Oil

Apply olive oil directly to your heels. It’s straightforward and efficient.

Coconut Oil

Apply virgin coconut oil to your heels and put socks before going to sleep.

Honey

Combine one cup of honey with a gallon of warm water. Soak your feet in the mixture for about 15 minutes. If the skin on your feet is still dry, you can go ahead and soak up your feet for a little longer.

Milk

Combine 1 cup of milk with 5-7 cups of warm water. Dip your foot in this mixture for about 15 minutes. Scrub your heels to remove the dead skin.

Sesame Oil

An effective moisturizer that contains vitamins B, D, and E. These vitamins can repair skin damage.

Soak your feet in warm water for 10 minutes and then apply sesame oil on them.

Turmeric

The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory substance will treat the fungal infection.

Mix 3 tablespoons with a few drops of coconut oil and form a thick paste. Apply it on your cracked heels and let it sit for 30 minutes.
