Suffering from cracked heels? You are not alone. Most of us neglect to show some much needed love and care to our feet and end up with ugly looking cracked heels.
When the skin on and around the heels becomes thickened or dried out it causes cracking. These cracks can range from minor to severe and be caused by anything from increased pressure /weight and ill-fitting shoes to dry climate and fungal infections, like athlete’s foot.

Since cracked heels are a common foot problem, many tend to look the other way; however cracked heels are unappealing, and make it harder for you walk around in sandals. Not only may they look bad, but they can also tear stockings, socks, and wear out your shoes. There are several methods to help restore a cracked heel and prevent further damage. Best part, you don't need to spend much money to get rid of cracked heels.
With this simple yet effective home remedy you can go back to having healthy and smooth looking feet. We tend to forget that most of the time we have the solution right in front of us, at home. You should always consider a natural, drug-free option first. So, for this homemade moisturizer all you'll be needing is honey, milk and orange juice.

Why it works you ask? Honey is a humectant, which means that it traps and seals moisture, making it ideal to apply to dry, cracked heels. It also helps ward off bacteria, which is an added benefit if you have open cracks that run deeper.
Milk is rich in vitamin A which is essential for healthy skin, as it helps to repair and rebuild it. It also helps to thin out the honey a bit and allow for easier application. When combined milk and honey work excellently as a moisturizer.
Then we have orange juice that with its vitamin C, stimulates the production of collagen, which is basically the substance that gives skin its elasticity and suppleness.
