I used to put lotion all over my body religiously everyday before the kids came along, but after, I really forgo this routine most days. Until one day, I happened to be free to put lotion on my heels and found out I have cracked heels. Look at the pic above and you know how gross cracked heels are! My heels were not THAT bad but it was bad enough to cause me to scream and shout out loud in disgust at my own feet. John heard me and said no worries he will get me some cream.
So a couple of days later he bought me this, the Ellgy Plus Cracked Heel Cream. This little tube of cream cost over RM20.
Ellgy Plus is an intensive dual-action moisturising system that is specially formulated to treat dry, cracked feet and heels.
It works both on and below the surface of the skin through 2 key ingredients: Saccharide Isomerate acts like a ‘water magnet’ that attracts and retains moisture. Portulaca Extract is a rich natural plant source of Essential Fatty Acids which works by strengthening the epidermal layer, thereby sealing in the moisture. Together they act to provide long lasting moisturisation. Apply Ellgy Plus to your feet and heels 2 – 3 times daily. Suitable for Diabetic footcare.
So, I started applying this cream 2 times a day sometimes even 3. I used to pride myself in having heels that never crack so this was driving me nuts. So nearly a month later, I must report this cream works! I have but a tiny crack on my right heel and completely none on my left heel now. Now I just apply once or twice a day Morning and Night but there are nights that I had no time to do it. I have not even finished a tube and it has already worked. After this, I might just use another tube and then start taking good care of my heels again. Cracked heels are not only disgusting, they can be painful too! Imagine all the dirt and sweat that enters your body through the big cracks…ewwwww.
