If you have cracked heels, it’s important to take extra care to keep your heels well moisturized. You can do this simply with an Epsom salt or a sea salt foot soak. It will also help improve circulation.

  1. Mix one-half cup of Epsom salt in a foot tub filled with warm water.
  2. Soak your feet in this solution for 10 minutes.
  3. Scrub your feet with a pumice stone and again soak in the foot soak for 10 minutes.
  4. Pat your feet dry and apply some foot cream or petroleum jelly to lock in the moisture
  5. For best results, put on a pair of socks to prevent the added moisture from evaporating.

8. Bananas



Ripe bananas are one of the cheapest home remedies for cracked and dry heels, thanks to their moisturizing properties.

  1. Mash one ripe banana into a smooth paste. Clean your feet thoroughly and apply the banana paste on your heels.
  2. Let it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes so that your skin can absorb the natural nourishment. Wash your feet gently with some warm water and then soak your feet in cold water for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Do this daily for a few weeks to restore soft and smooth heels.
