Okay, just because the temperatures are heating up doesn’t mean you’ll be walking around in your birthday suit, but your feet will likely go au natural this summer! Before you kick off your shoes and socks, exposing your bare feet to the world, check out these tips on how to use organic coconut oil to moisturize your dry heels.
Mix a little of the oil with some Shea butter to create a luxurious, deep moisturizing foot cream. Before you go to bed, rub it over your heels, and heck, the rest of your feet while you’re at it. Then, slip on some socks. It works like magic!
Exfoliate with a sugar scrub. Just add some regular old table sugar to some coconut oil and voila! The oil moisturizes while the sugar scrapes away dry skin. It’s a perfect combination.
In a hurry? Don’t take the time to mix anything. You can just use the coconut oil straight. Put some in your palm and rub it all over your feet. This works best right after you bath.
Now you’re probably wondering, what’s the difference? Why can’t I just use some other moisturizer? Well, besides being an inexpensive gift from nature, pure coconut oil contains the highest amount of saturated fat you can find. Plus, its unusual blend of fatty acids is believed to offer health benefits.
There’s nothing pretty about cracked feet, but luckily nature has a cure to moisturize dry heels. Grab yourself a bottle of organic coconut oil and let the moisturizing begin!
