Do you feel too ashamed to remove your shoes in public because of your cracked heels? 🤭👠
Having dry and cracked feet can be one of the worst nightmares for most women! 😖 Cracked heels usually caused by many factors, including standing for long hours, walking around barefoot, taking long & hot showers or using harsh soaps that can strip your skin of natural oils 🤔
If you have dry and cracked heels, you might need to give these home remedies a try! 👆🏻🤩 Coconut oil, banana and aloe vera are really hydrating for the skin. They moisturize dry skin and can penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and nourish them. With proper care, it only takes about 7-14 days to see the first signs of healing (of course depends on how badly your heels are cracked) ☺
To prevent cracked heels later on, here are our best advice 😉
- Avoid standing in one position for too long
- Avoid shoes that are too tight
- Wear good quality or clinically-tested padded socks
- Use silicon heel cups to prevent the heel pad from expanding
- Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated
- Use a pumice stone after showering a few times a week to help avoid skin thickening
Don't forget to share this with all your friends who might need it! 🤗
Functional fitness: training movements that we use in our everyday lives. This is what CrossFit is all about!

“We scale load and intensity; we do not change programs.” In other words, “the needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind.”
Why? Because everyone, of every age and ability, will benefit from the practice of functional movements.
“We say functional movements are “Natural,” meaning they are not movement patterns used only at the gym. Rather, these movements are found everywhere in human behavior and arise spontaneously as a response to life. For example, getting up out of a chair requires an air squat; picking up groceries from the floor, a deadlift; getting a five-gallon water jug onto a table, a clean; placing items on a high shelf, a shoulder press.
These are the movements life demands — whether we practice them or not — which makes them essential to independent living. When we lose the ability to perform functional movements, we also lose the ability to live independently. This is called decrepitude. By practicing these essential movements, we can stave off decrepitude and keep ourselves and our loved ones out of the nursing home.”
