.
Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons glycerine
  • 2 teaspoons rosewater
  • Warm water
  • Pumice stone/foot scrubber
How To Do
  1. Take a basin of warm water and add raw salt, eight to 10 drops of lemon juice, one tablespoon of glycerine, and one teaspoon of rosewater. Soak your feet for about 15-20 minutes in this water.
  2. Using a pumice stone or a foot scrubber, scrub your heels and the sides of the feet.
  3. Mix one teaspoon of glycerine, one teaspoon of rosewater, and one teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply the mixture on your cracked heels. Since this will be a sticky mixture, you can wear a pair of socks and leave it on overnight.
  4. Wash off with lukewarm water in the morning.
How Often Should You Do This
Repeat this for a few days till your heels become soft.
How This Works
The acidic properties of lemon juice help to heal rough and dry skin, thus preventing cracking on the soles of the feet (1). Along with lemon’s acidic properties, the combination of rosewater and glycerin turns out to be an effective treatment for cracked heels. Glycerin softens the skin (which is why it is used in most of the cosmetic products) whereas rosewater has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that help in healing cracks (2).
Caution

Lemon juice can cause irritation and dryness to your skin. Make sure you do a patch test to check for any allergic reactions.
