New Delhi, Jan 12, 2017: During winter, we apply lotions and creams to our hands, neck and face but miss out the most important part, the feet, thus causing cracked heels. Give your feet an oil massage and apply glycerine and rose water, says an expert.

Monica Sood, Managing Director, beauty brand TBC by Nature, has shared some easy hacks to keep our feet and heels soft and tender this winter.

*Oil massage: Oils are the best natural moisturisers, not only for your dry feet but also for your skin anywhere. You can either use any hydrogenated oil alone or mix them to get added benefits of their different components.

Massage this into the damaged skin on your feet, and put your feet up for half an hour. When the time is up, rinse your feet with cool water.

*Rice flour scrub for cracked heels: Not exfoliating your feet is also a reason for dry and cracked heels. So, exfoliating them is also necessary. Rice flour is best exfoliating scrub you can make for your feet at home. Mix one table spoon of rice flour with two table spoon of honey and one table spoon of lemon juice. Mix the scrub well and scrub your feet gently for 10 minutes. If you have serious cracking then soak your feet in warm water for 15 minutes before scrubbing.

*Herbal neem and tulsi remedy: And now an Ayurvedic remedy for cracked heels which has been used since decades in India.
