Feet must be well cared for in order to enjoy good health. To have healthy and well-hydrated feet, it is not necessary to spend a lot of money on foot creams. Fortunately, nature supplies us with natural ingredients that will help you have incredibly soft and hydrated feet.
Extreme temperatures, aging, and even the shoes you’re wearing right now can lead to dry, cracked feet. Dry skin does not have to be a very serious problem, but in addition to being ugly, it can be uncomfortable. Treatment for feet with dry skin will always require exfoliation, softening the skin and moisturizing it.
Natural remedies to hydrate feet
- The first thing you will have to do is exfoliate your feet, something that you can achieve with a little olive oil and brown sugar. You will have to use your hands to rub the mixture all over your feet (rubbing a little harder on the heels or on those parts that are drier). You will have to be massaging your feet for 15 minutes and then rinse your feet until the mixture of oil and brown sugar has completely disappeared.
- Next you will have to find softness by hydrating your feet and making them look much more beautiful. To achieve this, soak your feet in warm water with a cup of honey added and keep your feet in it for 15 minutes. If your feet are too dry and need extra hydration, you can leave them hydrating in the honey water for more than the fifteen minutes mentioned. This will also help you have better circulation in your feet and legs.
- After having soaked your feet, you can use coconut oil as it is another suitable resource for good hydration in dry feet. As if that were not enough, coconut oil, in addition to moisturizing, will also help you fight infections thanks to its antimicrobial and antifungal properties.
- To get well hydrated and cared for feet with coconut oil, you will have to put on coconut oil after having soaked your feet: After putting on coconut oil, put on clean cotton socks overnight. The next morning takes off your socks and wash your feet. Do this several days in a row until your feet have good results. If you don’t have coconut oil at home, you can use olive oil because it will give you the same results.
