The Crusty Cure

013You can call me Crusty The Clown. It’s okay. I have crusty heels. I think most women suffer from this at one time or another, but I think heredity works against some of us too. Thanks Mom:) Seriously, she is going to die when she reads this…she does read this, by the way, plus has a pink laptop and also facebooks. I won’t tell her age, but she is very savvy for her age and I am very proud of her.

Anyway, back to the recommendation. I have tried foot files, pumice stones, The Pedi Egg, you name it. I’ve tried it. I have finally found what has worked the very best for me. I think I might have seen this combo on t.v., but I can’t remember. Do this routine for a week or longer: Get some salicylic acid anti-blemish pads {it doesn’t matter the brand as long as it has salicylic acid as the main ingredient}. Sweep them over your heels, slather on some petroleum jelly {it doesn’t have to be Vaseline brand}, cover your feet with socks and get a good night’s rest with visions of soft heels in your head.

I probably should call Mom to warn her that I talked about our family’s crusty heels on my blog for the whole universe to read. I’m sure she will be so proud.

And please don’t forget to Take The Survey! Thanks! 🙂

  1. I have crusty heels too, especially in the winter. The ped egg helps but this sounds like it would help more. Thanks!

  2. I’m so going to try this. I’ve never had a problem with this until this year.
    Glad there’s some hope out there- my sheets thank you!

  3. You crack me up. I think your mom will forgive you, in the interest of helping out the masses of women out there with crusty heels. 😉

  4. OMGoodness! Thank you! My husband has always loved my feet, but for the last couple of years I haven’t been able to keep them smooth and it has really bothered me. I will definitely be trying this out!

  5. My mom told me about this treatment – she swears by it! We too have the curse of the crusty heels. I guess I really should try this…
