While I shell out enough of my salary on skincare, I often find myself turning a blind eye to my feet. With winter air wreaking havoc on my feet, they were in a state of ruins. I’m talking all-around roughness, calluses, and deep cracks. So I decided to try a Kokum butter remedy to find out if it really works.

Kokum butter is one of the unsung heroes of the DIY world. It functions like shea or cocoa butter, but better. Like their cooler cousin. It isn’t heavy or greasy and is basically odourless.
The vitamins and fatty acids present in Kokum butter aid in hydrating the skin and promoting natural collagen production. While the superstar ingredient is found in many beauty products, it’s kokum butter’s raw form that works wonders for your skin. Here’s how you can use it to treat cracked heels.
Take a small quantity of the solid kokum butter in a pan and heat it till it melts. Once it cools, apply it on your feet and then wear a pair of socks.
I suggest letting it stay overnight so it works its magic. You’ll walk away with baby-soft skin, without visiting a dermat or going to a salon. Do this once a week for crack-free feet.
It’s time to put a pep back in your step!
