Treat Dry, Cracked Feet With Baking Soda
Winter is over so you better do something for those cracked heels and say “hello” to sun. Dry, cracked, and calloused feet are not attractive at all, and you cannot hide your feet in socks anymore.
Do not panic, we have the perfect solution for you! You do not need to pay a small fortune in beauty salons, and this simple, home treatment will make your feet smooth and beautiful!
- 4-5l warm water
- 2 tbsp baking soda
- soft scrub sponge/brush/pumice stone
- lavender essential oil (optional)
And that is pretty much everything you need!
Add the baking soda to the warm water and stir until it dissolves. For a nice scent and a real spa treatment, add a few drops of lavender essential oil.
It has a relaxing effect, which is great for those who had just came home from work. Soak your feet in for 15-20 minutes. Then, take a scrub brush, sponge or pumice stone and thoroughly rub the cracked area on your feet.
Apply a nice layer of your high-glycerin moisturizer, or just coat your feet with some coconut oil or vaseline. Put your socks on to seal the moisture in.
If you decide to do the treatment before bedtime, sleep with the socks on. Do the treatment once or twice a week, and once the condition of your feet improves, you can do it twice a month throughout the whole summer.
For a more intense effect, make a thick paste using baking soda and just a little water. Scrub your feet before you scrub them with the sponge!
