More and more women are complaining about the excessive dryness of the skin. Most of them say that they have very dry and cracked heels and that they haven’t yet found a cure for this problem. Moreover, cracked heels can become extremely painful, which is even more annoying and stressful.
If left untreated, cracked heels can lead to more serious problems, such as the apparition of a fungal infection. The natural ointment that we’ve proposed below is useful for any type of cracked heels and can be used on a daily basis.
Ointment for Cracked Heels – Recipe
To heal your dry or cracked heels, you mustn’t try to purchase expensive commercial products that are filled with toxic and harmful substances. You can try the simple homemade recipe that we have presented below. It is extremely efficient and it contains only natural substances.
– 1 – 2 tablespoons of milk, preferably whole
– 1 cup of honey
– The juice from ½ orange
Warm the honey in lukewarm water so as to easily mix it with the milk and the orange juice. Combine all the ingredients until you get a fine, smooth, homogeneous and creamy mixture.
Before applying this ointment, you must soak your feet in warm water and rub them with a pumice to eliminate the dead skin cells. Use some calendula cream to apply on the heels and, after 10 minutes, you can apply your homemade ointment while rubbing gently. Let it cure for almost 45 minutes, to allow the ingredients to get absorbed into the skin. You can also use this ointment for chapped lips or any other dry skin area on your body.
Honey will hydrate and nourish the skin and, at the same time, will protect it from bacteria. Milk will offer the right amount of vitamin A that is necessary for the skin to recover and orange juice is rich in the useful vitamin C that will stimulate the natural collagen production.
