#BeautyBar: The best homemade foot scrubs for cracked heels

DIY Foot Scrub 7

Few things are more intimate than having your feet rubbed by your partner after a long, hard day. Cute, right? Now throw in some dry, cracked heels into the equation and that romantic moment just turned into a horror scene.

Made especially worse by walking in sandals, cracked feet are not only an eyesore, but they can quite as easily be a romance killer.

Fear not though, there’s a quick fix to this! Here are two easy DIY scrubs you can whip up at home that will act as a great exfoliate.

DIY Foot Scrub Ingredients


  • Start by soaking your feet in warm water for five minutes. This will allow your skin to loosen up a little.
  • Take your pick on the ingredients above and mix them into a thick scrub. Rub it in circular motions on your foot, focusing on your driest areas.
  • Follow with a pumice stone making sure you’re not too rough. This will help get rid of any extra dry skin.
  • Rinse off with clean water and pat dry.
  • Oil your feet with a creamy moisturizer (petroleum jelly will do) and wear some cotton socks right after. This will help retain the moisture.

And there you have it, your own set of happy feet!

    All over the world the exams and continuous assessment is the norm of grading students. I do not see why Kenya should deviate from this norm yet the country is producing international class students. Ask Tanzania where they changed things some years back and they will tell you it was a big mistake. You never find good number of Tanzania students competing for international positions at all.

    If a PS thinks its the right move with more than half of the Kenyans who when through this 844 system what does a person who went through the Continuous assessment exams and whose children do as well through the GCSE have to say if it does not affect them?
