Today’s post isn’t the most glamorous thing of life, but totally necessary. I don’t know about you but I get cracked heels a few times a year and it’s just not cute. Those cracked heels have got to go… keep reading to see exactly what I do to get rid of them.
What You Need:
- Cracked or dry heels (don’t worry I will spare you the picture of my feet)
- A good pair of socks, the fluffier the better
- Vick’s VapoRub
- Foot Treatment Oil
1 // Slather your feet with Vick’s VapoRub and when I say slather, don’t be shy. Once your feet are good and coated put on your nice fuzzy socks. (if you have a bad cough too, this will kill two birds with one stone).
2 // Keep your socks on overnight. If you can’t sleep with socks on at least leave them on an hour or 2 before bed.
3 // In the morning wash your feet really well and use your Pumice. I absolutely LOVE Mr. Pumice, it has a gentle side and a really rough side (it isn’t your typical stone pumice). I scrub my feet with this at least twice a week in the shower.
4 // If you have any dead skin that is peeling away or hanging off ( I know it sounds gross), you can cut them with cuticle clippers. Only do this after your feet have been wet because this will soften any loose skin.
5 // To keep really nice maintained feet throughout the year use Essie’s Swept Off My Feet Treatment oil by rubbing a generous amount on feet before bed and letting it dry completely. You can also use this oil with your pumice.
This is basically the same type of treatment you get while getting a pedicure, you can just do it at home!
Hopefully this was able to help you! My feet get really dry and rough from wearing sandals all the time in the summer. Now summer is over hopefully my feet can stay a lot more moisturized, especially with doing these steps.
How often do you get a pedicure?
