New Delhi: We take special care of our skin, hair, face and hands but more often than not, tend to forget or, let's say ignore the important part, i.e., our feet. Our feet bear the maximum brunt of our lifestyles and the heels often get damaged due to lack of proper care.

They are more exposed to the sun, dirt and pollution which makes them rough, flakey, red and itchy.

Thus, the dryness causes the heels to crack. But one can easily get rid of their unwanted cracked heels by trying simple home remedies at home.

Here are some home remedies to help you get soft and smooth heels:

Glycerin

Apply some glycerin mixed with lemon juice on your feet and heels and let it remain for 20 minutes. Wash it off with cold water.

Coconut oil

One should massage their feet with coconut oil as it helps repair cracked heels and also has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties in it.

Vaseline with lemon juice

Mix some vaseline with freshly squeezed lemon juice and rub it on your feet and heels properly until your feet feel smooth and the paste is absorbed into the cracks.

Honey

This one is the simplest and most effective treatments. All you have to do is soak your feet in a bucket of warm water which has been mixed with honey for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Sesame oil

Try massaging your cracked feet with sesame oil every night and it will leave you with magical results and feather-like soft heels.
