No more cracked heels or dry feet – tips for soft feet

2 min read


Uh-oh… Cracked heels anyone?

The summer days of tootsies in sandals and thongs are sadly behind us, but your feet might now be heaving a sigh of relief if all that exposure to the elements has left you with dry feet or cracked heels.

Now it’s time to look forward to getting out the sexy winter boots again, however unfortunately for your feet it’s not all good news. The cooler weather combined with hot baths and showers can cause your skin to dry out and the dreaded dry feet and cracked heels can rear their ugly heads again.

So here are some pampering tips to keep your feet soft, lush and crack-free.

  1. Cleanse and Exfoliate – Take care of your feet at night by cleansing those little piggies thoroughly and gently pummel them with a pumice stone. This will keep them fresh and also remove the dead skin cells.
  2. Moisturise – Dry your feet well and give them a caring massage while moisturising. Choose a moisturiser that has peppermint to stimulate circulation and also protects the feet by locking in the moisture. Our new ‘Sweet Dreams’ Softening Foot Treatment fits the bill perfectly.
  3. Keep moisturising all night long – After moisturising pop on a pair of light natural fabric socks that you can wear to bed. Cotton and bamboo are great choices. Your socks will also stop dust and dirt from sticking to your freshly pampered feet.
  4. Soak swollen feet – If your feet are swollen after a long day of running around, treat them like an overpaid sports star with a good cold soaking as soon as you get home and get a chance to sit down. Simply fill up a bucket with cold water and add 10 ice cubes. Soak for 5 minutes.
  5. Splash out – Treat yourself to a pedicure every now and again

By following these tips you won’t have to be self conscious about your cracked heels in yoga class! (or is that just me?)

Getting older is an interesting thing. We've been brainwashed to fear the slightest changes in our complexions: a wrinkle here, a laugh line there, a smattering of sun spots.

And yet with age comes sooooo much good stuff: wisdom, comfort in your own skin, and the oh-so-coveted ability to give fewer damns. If you ask us, that sounds pretty great.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a pretty fancy name, but to put it simply it’s really just a large sugar molecule (i.e. a natural polysaccharide) that looks a bit gooey and sticky. It plays a really important role in moisturising your skin, keeping it healthy and hydrated.
