9 Best Home Remedies to Reduce Cracked Heels

3. Castor Oil:


Castor oil has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties owing to the fact that it is rich in vitamins and nutrients. Simply apply some castor oil on your cracked heels, wear socks over your feet and let it seep in and heal those cracks overnight.

4. Neem:


Neem is known to be the destroyer of all things that threaten good health. And this holds true for cracked heels too. Owing to its high fungicidal properties, Neem fights infection and really soothes dry, irritated skin.

How to do it:

  • To make those cracks on your heels disappear, first crush a handful of Neem leaves into a fine paste.
  • To this paste, add some turmeric powder and mix them well together.
  • Now apply the paste on the cracks and leave it on for about 30 minutes. That done, wash your feet with warm water and dry them with a clean cloth.
  • Use it daily and you are bound to see a difference in no time.

5. Coconut oil:


Coconut oil is an natural sanitizer and helps to kill germs that could lead to infection.

How to do it:

  • Massage a spoonful of coconut oil on each cracked heel and cover with socks (try these heel socks) before bed.
  • In the morning, heels should be smoother and softer. Repeat as needed each night until cracked heels are better.

6. Epsom Salt:


How to do it:

  • Add 1/3 cup of epsom salt to a bucket or large bowl wide enough to fit both feet.
  • Fill with warm water and let feet soak for 20-30 minutes.
  • The epsom salt helps to gently exfoliate the feet.
  • Rub feet with a light oil such as sesame oil or jojoba oil to keep feet moisturized.
