its lovely being able to wear open sandals in this heat, but by the time you get home, your feet are ingrained with dirt from the streets. not only that, but the skin becomes hard and cracked, so its essential to moisturise them morning and night. i have been using coconut oil, the same thing that you use for cooking and palmers cocoa butter for heel repair – an easy to roll on stick. another more natural alternative is napiers rose hip and rose geranium organic body balm . alfie bought me some egyptian magic cream for xmas, which is very moisturising – more pricey, but apparently cures lots of ailments.
