Make Dry And Cracked Heels Smooth With $2 Foot Soak
Tatiana Bosc 3/28/2017
With summer fast approaching, it's time to get your feet flip-flop ready! This can be daunting if your feet haven't seen the light of day in months, or if you suffer from year-round cracked heels like I do. If you're just about ready to give up on your feet (and the idea of ever wearing sandals again) give this $2 foot soak a try first. If it worked on my dry and cracked heels, it's sure to work on yours too!
I was skeptical to try this at first, but one try was all it took to realize that this truly was a game-changer. Not only did it work like a charm, but it worked better than every expensive alternative! Best of all, it cost me less than $2 for all of the supplies!
I already had all of the supplies at home, but if you don't a quick trip to the drug store is all you need to get started. Once you have your ingredients, make sure you have a tub big enough for your feet and 15 minutes to spare.
Listerine And Vinegar Foot Soak
-1 cup Listerine (off-brand mouthwash works too!)
-1 cup vinegar (I used white vinegar, but you can also use apple cider vinegar)
-2 cups warm water
Here's an example of another at-home foot transformation. If your feet look anything like the "before" picture, then this soak is for you!
Step 1 - Fill your soaking tub with the Listerine, vinegar, and warm water.
Step 2 - Plop your feet in and relax for 15 minutes.
Step 3 - Using a pumice, gently slough off all of the dead skin.
While there are tons of pumice stones on the market, I found inexpensive pumice bars to work best. They can be found at most drug stores and beauty supply stores, and don't cost more than a couple bucks each. Maintain your soft feet by using the pumice bar every few days in the shower. While they claim to work on both wet or dry feet, I've always had the best results when used wet. Add a bit of liquid body wash to the bar before scrubbing for extra softness.
If you suffer from dry or cracked feet, don't give up on them just yet! They may be the most ignored body part, but that doesn't mean they don't deserve some TLC every once in a while.
This soak proves that you don't have to spend a fortune on your feet to have them looking like a million bucks. Give it a try, and watch your heels transform before your eyes!
