Foot Care Home Remedies for Dry and Rough Skin
The skin in our feet is much thicker than the rest of our bodies. This is because the cells in this area divide faster in response to pressure. This makes sense since our feet support us every day as we stand and walk.
Another factor that contributes to its dryness and thickness is that they do not have oil-secreting glands. This means there is nothing that moisturizes the area on a regular basis. But that’s okay because there are ways that you can follow at home to prevent your feet from getting thicker by the day.
Simply get a basin that is large enough for your feet and pour some hot water that your skin can tolerate. Add jojoba or coconut oil and then soak your feet for 15 minutes.
If you think you have too much dirt resting at the soles of your feet far too long, you can scrub them off gently with sugar and almond oil. This will exfoliate your dead skin cells and rub off some of the filth.
Just like the face, your foot deserves a relaxing mask. Blend some avocado and yogurt, and smother them onto your feet. Wrap it with a bag and leave it on for 15 minutes.
