Cracks in your heels may deepen and bleed if left untreated. Let’s try some effective remedies from the kitchen to treat cracked heels. Banana pulp can be used as foot mask to treat cracked heels. Banana acts as a moisturizer. Mash a ripe banana and apply its pulp on dry or cracked heels. Let the mask stay for 10 minutes. Wash it off using lukewarm water. Regular use of banana pulp foot mask on cracked heels leaves the skin softer and smoother. As the feet lack oil glands it is very much required to provide optimum nourishment to feet. Soak your feet in lukewarm water mixed with equal amount of mineral oil for 10 minutes. Wear cotton socks overnight to lock the moisture in. This remedy to treat cracked heel should be followed at night to get the maximum benefit. Foot scrub made up of rice powder, honey and vinegar is also effective to remove dead cells from cracked heels. Grind half a cup of rice and mix the powder with honey and vinegar. Soak your feet in a tub of lukewarm water for 10 minutes and pat them dry. Apply the paste on your feet and scrub them to eliminate dry, thick skin on your heels. Honey provides moisture to the feet while rice and vinegar have exfoliating properties that keep dryness at bay.
