If you’re anything like us here in California, it has been very hard to get a pedicure to remove that dry, dead, and cracked skin on your heels and feet. It’s sandal weather these days, which is actually worse for feet as skin is in a lot more contact with shoe materials, dirt, and other irritants. This makes it easier to get calluses, cracks, or dry skin patches.
So, if you’re bored at home and want some TLC, have some cracks or dry skin patches, or you simply want to give our pedicure a try, here are our four steps to do your own at-home pedicure to get rid of cracked skin with SkinIntegra.
What you will need:
- Your tube of SkinIntegra’s Rapid Crack Repair Cream

- A small tub, or your bath or shower
- A small towel
- About 20 mins 😊
1. Get your feet ready
As with any professional pedicures, soaking your feet in water allows your skin to absorb moisture, softens your calluses, and more importantly, gives you some time to relax.
The temperature of the water should be warm to lukewarm, but not hot. Warmer isn’t necessarily better, so take it nice and easy and make the water a comfortable temperature for your feet.
10 minutes is be plenty of time to get your feet nice and relaxed and ready for the next steps.
2. Apply SkinIntegra’s Rapid Crack Repair Cream
Use a small towel and dry off your feet, but not completely. Leave a little moisture so that your feet feel damp but not wet – this will help the cream lock in that remaining moisture.
Take out your tube of Rapid Repair Cream and use a pea-sized amount for each heel – a little goes a long way! If you want to soften your entire foot, use one pea-sized amount on your heel, another for the top and bottom of your foot, and a smaller one for in-between your toes.
Powerful Plant Oils and Urea to help repair your skin
Our cream combines powerful plant oil like Sasha Inchi from the Peruvian Amazon, Sea Buckthorn from the Himalaya's, Shea Butter, and 25% Urea to bring your skin all the omegas, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and natural moisturizers you will need to help repair your cracked skin. It has been clinically tested to show visible repair as soon as after day 1.
3. Massage your skin
Our cream is designed to rapidly absorb in the upper layers of your skin in minutes, so you won’t have to massage for a long time. Take 5 minutes to gently massage your foot, allowing the cream to absorb well, focusing on the dry, cracked, or rough patches.
4. Wait a few minutes, and you’re on your way to smooth, soft skin
Once you have massaged your heel or your foot, wait a few minutes before walking to make sure you don’t slip. We recommend wearing socks after this pedicure to continue the moisture lock-in process.
If you are doing this at night, try and sleep with your socks on, as it will make the most of the process. If you are doing this during the day and plan on wearing sandals later, try to keep on your socks on for at least 10 minutes.
You can reapply our Rapid Crack Repair Cream twice daily and even the most severe cracks will improve in as little as 14 days. For most of our customers, visible results are seen after the first day and full repair after just three or four days. Remember that we have a 30-day, money-back guarantee if it doesn’t work for you.
But what about pedicure tools?
A lot of people will use tools like graters, files, or stones to accelerate the dry skin removal process. We simply do not recommend this as we help a lot of diabetes and pre-diabetes customers, and peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage in the feet and hands usually) is very common. If you are not gentle or practiced in the use of these tools, you can actually damage your skin further (even without knowing it right away).
