5. Bid farewell to cracked heels
Most people will agree that cracked heelsare the bane of winter. Petroleum jelly is a simple and inexpensive way of getting rid of them. Slather petroleum jelly on your heels and wear cotton socks after you have a bath or before you sleep at night. This works great in two ways: it moisturises and helps heal cracked heels, and also prevents them from occurring in the first place.

6. Strengthen your nails
When was the last time you thought of your nails (no, we aren’t exactly talking about the monthly manicures here)? Did you know that your nails are beacons of your overall health? A diet rich in iron, calcium, vitamins A, C, D and E can lead to healthy and shiny nails. You can also strengthen your nails by massaging them with a warm olive oil thrice a week.
