The #1 Strategy for Curing Dry and Cracked Feet
Are you tired of having super dry feet?
Do they hurt because they are so cracked and itchy?
Well, if so then you probably have some form of athlete’s foot or eczema.
In this article, I will show you how to get rid of dry and cracked feet in a relatively short amount of time by utilizing some of the best products that the beauty community has to offer.
Luckily, getting rid of rough feet is easier than curing toenail fungus.
What You Will Need:
In order to be successful, one must have the right tools in hand to get rid of their cracked feet and maintain them.
You could build a house by using nails and hammer or you could speed up the process by using power tools.
These products are your power tools.
1. Pumice Stone
- Removes dead skin
- Exfoliates skin
- Easy to grip
This particular pumice stone is great because its a little bit bigger than a standard one.
The larger rectangle shape makes it easier to grip and use in slippery places like the shower.
Not only it is user friendly, but also does a phenomenal job at removing the dead skin.
Since you are able to get a good grip on the pumice, you will be able to exfoliate your dry skin better.
I recommend combining the pumice stone with a foot soak or wash so that your skin is soften and will maximize your results.
2. Foot Soak
- Softens rough and dry skin
- Smells great
- Relieves pain
This relaxing foot soak is one I recommend in my getting rid of toenail fungus articles.
You don’t need toenail fungus to use this soothing soak. What I really like is how refreshed my feet feel after a 15 min soak.
The only thing I find negative about this product is that I wish there was more of it. It will run out fast if you use it consistently.
So, you might want to either grab two of them, a bigger bag, or find an alternative soak.
Nonetheless, the soak will really soften your skin especially if its dry and dead. Then using the pumice stone like aforementioned will take you one step closer to healthy looking feet. (Just in time for summer!)
3. Foot Wash
- Helps with smell
- Washes away bacteria
- Soothes irritation
You will hear me preach about this product because I find it very useful against fungus and dry skin.
Tea tree oil is great for maintaining healthy skin on your feet and is natural.
This soap will be great for people who have pain associated with their dry feet.
In the chances that your dry skin is caused from fungus, this wash will help combat that.
4. Foot Lotion
- Moisturizes dry skin
- Rejuvenates feet
Well, now that you have read about effective ways to remove your dry and cracked skin off of your feet, it is time to maintain it.
The best way to maintain soft and supple feet is to apply lotion once in the morning and once at night.
I prefer ones with cocoa butter simply because I find them to be more effective at keeping my feet hydrated.
Incorporating the aforementioned products will definitely help in gaining soft, supple feet.
I know that causes can vary from different conditions.
So, I would like to address foot fungus because it is something that has caused my feet to become ravaged.
