Banana Foot Bath

Banana is rich in vitamins and antioxidants that protect and heal damaged skin and cracked heels. Banana exfoliates your skin removing dead skin cells at the same time moisturizing your feet. To prepare a banana foot bath, blend or mash up one banana with 2 cup of warm water until smooth. Then pour the mixture into a small basin or bucket and place your feet into the solution. Allow you feet to soak in the mixture for 20 minutes. Then rub the solution over your toes and heels for about 2 minutes using a pumice stone. Then rinse off with water and moisturize.
