A quick DIY routine to heal cracked heels

Cracked Feet Troubling You? Discover an Easy DIY Fix!

Cracked feet, also known as heel fissures, can be painful and unsightly. These pesky cracks often occur due to dry skin, lack of moisture, or prolonged pressure on the feet. But worry not; a simple DIY routine can help restore your feet to soft, smooth glory. Let's dive into a simple yet effective regimen that will have your feet thanking you.

Daily ritual - soak and moisturise:

At the end of a long day, it's time to pamper your feet. Here's what you need to do:

1. Soak Your Feet: Start by filling a basin with lukewarm water. Let your tired feet soak in it for about 15 to 20 minutes. It will help soften the hardened skin and make it easier to exfoliate.

2. Seal in Moisture: After soaking, gently pat your feet dry with a soft towel until they are half dry. Then, reach for SMOO™ Moist Moisturizing Crème. This foot cream is a powerhouse of natural goodness with extracts of Tucuma and Aloe. Apply it generously on your feet, massaging it to ensure deep moisturisation. Leave it on overnight for SMOO™ Moist body moisturizer to work its magic. Imagine waking up to skin that feels soft, nourished, and deeply hydrated.

3. Cover Up: Slip anti-skid socks to lock in the moisture before bed. It prevents the cream from rubbing off and keeps your sheets clean.

Weekly ritual - peel and moisturise:

Now that your nightly routine is sorted, let's talk about weekly maintenance:

1. Exfoliate Gently: It's crucial to remove dead skin cells to prevent the formation of new cracks. However, avoid physical scrubs or pumice stones, as they can be too harsh. Instead, opt for a lactic acid peel like Milk Route® Water-less lactic acid peel. Apply a thin layer and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. It will help to exfoliate and improve the texture of your skin.

2. Wash it Off: After the recommended time, wash your feet with a gentle body wash. It will remove the peel and any dead skin that has loosened. Follow through with an ultra-hydrating moisturiser like SMOO™ Moist Moisturizing Crème to ensure your skin remains soft and well-nourished.

Indications that you need to meet your dermatologist:

While heel fissures are common and can often be managed with a routine, there are instances when you should seek professional guidance. Here are some indications that it's time to consult a dermatologist:

- Cracks appear in unusual areas like the instep or arch portion of the feet or any other areas of the body.

- Bleeding occurs from the cracks.

- Cracks remain unhealed even after moisturising for a month.

- Scaly psoriatic lesions develop on the feet.

In conclusion, repairing heel fissures and achieving smooth, healthy feet is within your reach. Follow this DIY routine actively, and remember to listen to your feet's needs. Healthy and moisturised feet are just a few steps away; with the right products, you can put your best foot forward.
