Foot mask and wrap
A foot mask is something that will help your feet get extra nourishment. I prefer to use an acidic foot mask wrapped in a thin saran wrap. This gives an extra anti-inflammatory and anti bacterial properties.
All you need is..
- Tomato pulp
- 1/2 tablespoon Lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon honey
Do this way..
- Mix all the ingredients well in a bowl. Massage you feet with this mixture and wrap it with a saran wrap. Let it do its magic to your feet for about 10 minutes. Remove the wrap now and wash off with cold water. This will also help to remove tan on your feet with regular usage.
Protect with moisture
The last but not the least, moisturization. Locking the moisture in your feet is the most crucial part in taking care of your feet. It helps to keep your feet healthy and away from cracks and dryness.
You need not buy high end foot creams to complete this step. All you need is these two simple ingredients and you are done with your own foot cream that you can prepare within 1 minute.
- Vitamin E capsules.
How to prepare your own foot care cream
- Take a small amount of Vaseline onto your palm
- Take one or two capsules of Vitamin E and Pierce them with a safety pin to get the oil onto your palm.
- Mix them well
Before going to bed, Apply this mixture all over your foot. Concentrating more on the heel part where the cracks are seen. Wear socks and have a happy sleep. Wake up to see your baby soft feet. 🙂
CAUTION: I recommend to apply this DIY foot cream just before going to bed as your foot will be slippery after you apply this, to go anywhere else. Wear socks to lock the moisture.
