Cracked heels look bad, snag on blankets and clothes and can be downright painful. Treat them overnight with coconut oil for some relief.
Moisturizing cracked heels overnight is a pretty standard way of treating them, but not all moisturizing agents work equally. Oils tend to work better than lotions because lotions absorb into the skin more quickly.
While you can use any vegetable oil for this, coconut oil is great because it stays solid at room temperature, making it easier to apply without making a mess. Apply the oil liberally, slip on a pair of clean, white socks, and go to sleep. You’ll have smoother heels in the morning. If your heels are in particularly bad shape, wash them in warm water and use a pumice stone to take off the worst of the dry skin before your oil treatment.
Oh, and if you have a significant other, get them to do the honors for you via a lengthy, luxurious massage. Hey, it’s for your health!
