You can avoid dehydrated looking skin too by drinking a glass of water before you go to bed at night. This is the easiest way to hydrate your skin and protect it from getting dry and looking dull and lifeless.
Women walk in sandals for most of the summer. This leads to the skin on the feet and heels getting dry and in severe cases it may also leads to cracks on the skin. Now, if you face this issue then do not panic.
Simply soak your legs in a tub of warm water every night and use a loofah to get rid of the dead skin cells. Use Vaseline on your feet before you go to bed and wear socks to trap the moisture. Alternatively you could shop around for creams and gels that are rich in moisture and help to hydrate the skin.
