·         Good soft slipper
·         1 Lemon
·         Good foot file
·         Good foot brush
·         Towel
·         Pure glycerin

Method to achieve smooth heels and soft feet:

Step 1: Soaking the Feet

First fill the tub with hot water which is bearable to your feet. Add salt, shampoo, soap and squeeze lemon juice in it with few drops of dettol. Now soak your feet in the tub for 15 minutes. This will first soften the hard dry skin on your foot.

Step 2: Scrubbing and filing

Now just scrub and file the soft dry skin for atleast 15 minutes.

Step 3: Brushing your feet

Now you just take off  your feet out of water brush the whole feet to brush off dead skin.

Step 4: Washing and Drying the feet

The next step is just to wash off to remove dead cells and pat dry with towel.

Step 5: Moisturize with Glycerin

Take glycerin in your hand and massage this gently on your feet even in the gaps between your toes. This helps in speeding the blood circulations the skin absorbs more  glycerin required for relieving cracked heels. 

Step 6: Covering your feet with Socks

After a massage put on the socks to cover your heels. You must cover this atleast for 2 to 3 hours.

Repeat the above process atleast once a week to avoid any further issue of cracked heels. You can also use any lcreams like Vaseline heel guard or Krack cream instead of glycerin.
