6 hacks you need to know for happy feet
Pedicures can feel heavenly while they're happening. But waiting in line for them for hours, and paying exorbitant amounts for them can certainly be a drag.

But if you could get a pedicure in the comfort of your own home? Sounds impossible? It certainly isn't with these 6 home remedies:

The Silky Heel Hack

If you're suffering from dry and cracked heels, you should try the Vaseline or Coconut oil. It usually takes around a minute or two to put on. Just dab some coconut oil or Vaseline on your cracked heels and massage it for half a minute to let it absorb. Wear socks and get a good night sleep. You will be amazed with the results when you wake up.


The Pineapple Foot Hack

This hack barely takes half a minute on each of your heels. Just wash your feet and rub a pineapple slice on them while still wet. Use the slice like a foot scrubber and let it rest on your heels overnight. Wash it off with lukewarm water in the morning. This hack can heal dry and cracked feet  and it is also very useful in the treatment of calluses.


The Deodorant Foot Hack

If you are having a rough time with foot blisters in high heels or pumps, you should try the deodorant foot hack. Just apply some deodorant where it hurts. This will prevent irritation of the skin and protect your foot from blisters.


The Dry Shampoo Hack

We all know how irritating it gets when your feet get stinky after wearing  shoes without socks. You can avoid this by simply using dry shampoo; just spray it in your shoes to prevent excessive sweating of feet.


The Epsom Salt & Listerine Foot Bath

If you are struggling with sore and tired feet because of your hectic routine, add Epsom and Listerine Foot bath to your weekly beauty regimen. This foot bath is one of the variations of the usual Listerine Foot soak that you may have heard about on the internet. Just add two to three tablespoons of Epsom salt along with half a cup of Listerine mouth wash in a bucket of warm water. Soak your feet and enjoy the soothing experience you will get along with a delightful little tingling feel (which is quite normal). This foot bath is effective in the treatment of sore feet and it will also help you get rid of dead skin cells from the heels. Just scrub your feet with pineapple after this nice foot bath and you will be immensely pleased with the results.


Swap Your Shoes Regularly

Continuous foot pain or soreness can also be fixed with this simple tip from podiatrists. Swap your shoes regularly or try using different shoes on alternate days. Wearing the same shoes everyday mounts the pressure and bends the same spots on your feet that result in soreness and pain. So, ladies, swap those shoes regularly.
