Home remedies for cracked heels include applying a moisturizer or using an exfoliant. A solution of glycerin and rosewater moisturizes the heels as does massaging them with a natural plant oil, such as olive oil. Put on thick socks after applying a moisturizer to improve results.
Exfoliants reduce the appearance of cracked heels by removing dead skin. Make an exfoliant at home by combining rice flour with water to make a paste. Add honey and apple cider vinegar. Scrub the cracked area with the exfoliant, rinse clean, and dry the feet before applying a moisturizer. Other natural remedies that treat cracked heels include lemon juice and vinegar.
