Feet are often abused & neglected, causing dryness around the rim of the heel. This is the sign of development of cracked heels. It is called callus and may appear in yellow or dark brown color. At initial stage, it may appear with small cracks visible at the callus. If left untreated and as more pressure is placed on the heel, these cracks can become bigger and deeper and eventually walking or standing can be hurting. An exacerbated cracking condition may lead to bleeding and bacterial infections.
Injuries and infections of every kind respond very well to Virgin Coconut Oil therapy. It aids in speeding the healing process and prevent ugly scarring. For better absorption, it is best to massage or work the oil into the cracked heels. For more severe conditions, lightly apply with a lint or cotton dipped in virgin coconut oil to the wound.
Besides healing, the feet are endowed with extra softness, locking the moisture from inside out!
