Did you know that heel fissures are also some of the signs of skin aging? The heels are usually tough-skinned. Most people do not see the need to take good care of their heels until the fissures start to emerge.
I bet you will agree with me when I say that heel fissures make your feet look ugly. It also somehow limits your choices of footwear. If you don’t like other people to comment on how ugly your feet look, try the following natural remedies:
1. Mix brown sugar and honey. Scrub your feet with this exfoliating mixture. One of the reasons why your dermis becomes tougher is because of the accumulation of dead skin cells. Because of cellular turnover, dead cells settle in the pores of skin. It is only through exfoliating that you can get rid of accumulated dead cells in your body. Gently use this skin scrub to get rid of tough skin layers.
2. Soak your dermis in lemon juice. Cut one lemon into wedges. Rub the wedges all over your feet. Make sure your heels will get soaked in the juice of lemon. Lemon has the ability to soften up tough dermis tissues. In fact, this is often used to tenderize meat when cooking. Let the juice of lemon soften your heels for about an hour before washing it off with lukewarm water. Use this treatment nightly until your heels start to soften up.
3. Moisturize your feet. Bringing back young looking heels might sound impossible but this can be done with the help of a good anti aging moisturizer. Choose a moisturizing product that is capable of regenerating collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. I suggest looking for CynergyTK, Phytessence Wakame and Manuka Honey.
CynergyTK is one of the best sources of a protein called Keratin. Keratin is responsible for the production of collagen and elastin. This can bring back the natural resilience and elasticity of your dermis. Phytessence Wakame is a type of sea kelp that can get rid of the harmful enzymes that attack hyaluronic acid. This acid is necessary for collagen lubrication. It keeps skin soft and dewy. Manuka honey has emollient properties that can duplicate the moisture-retaining functions of the skin.
4. Try rubbing coconut oil to your skin at night. Wear thick socks to insulate it. Coconut oil is a great source of a kind of omega-6 fatty acid called linoleic acid. This acid has regenerative properties. It can help correct damaged cells and tissues. It also acts as a binder to broken tissues so you can bring back natural dermis resilience.
Now that you know how to treat those ugly heel fissures, you should be able to get young looking heels in no time. Use these tips to take good care of your feet.
