Say goodbye to cracked heels and get set to buy those sexy, skin-baring shoes and flaunt your feet!

I may personally love flats and flip-flops because they're most comfortable to walk in, but I have to admit, wearing high heels, stilettos, wedges and beautiful strappy sandals are way sexier. My friends feel the same way, as do thousands of other women out there.

I'm sure many of us love these feet-baring shoes but I've known some women who can't wear them as often as they like due to dry or cracked heels. Cracked heels and dry feet in sexy shoes can be a turn-off, and it can make one feel very uncomfortable.

Well if you also suffer from cracked heels, we scoured the web for really simple remedies for you! You'll be amazed at what these simple kitchen ingredients can do! But first, a few things to remember:

Daily Soak and Proper Diet

First of all, if you have cracked heels, it's a must that you soak your feet daily or at least thrice a week. Regular cleaning and moisturizing is important so at the end of the day, try to soak your feet in warm salty water for at least 10-15 minutes. Dry your feet then apply your favorite foot cream or lotion. Wear a pair of socks and keep them on overnight.

Next, drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated. Good hydration will help you avoid dryness, cuts and cracks in your feet. Also, take note that cracked heels is commonly caused by deficiencies in vitamins, minerals, zinc and omega 3 fatty acids. Therefore, consume a diet rich in those things. Lastly, don't forget to eat fresh green vegetables, dairy products, nuts, cereals, meat, chicken, fish, eggs and brown rice.

Today's homemade remedies are banana and olive oil! All you have to do is to pick either of these ingredients or try them both!

Outstanding Olive Oil

1. Before going to bed rub olive oil into your dry, cracked heels.
2. Wear a pair of socks.
3. Leave the socks on overnight. This will help the heels to absorb all the moisture They will be soft and supple in the morning!

Amazing Banana

1. Mash one ripe banana and apply it on your dry and cracked heels.

2. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes.

3. Wash your feet with warm and cold water alternately. You will get smooth and slippery heels after this!
