What We All Knew But Would Never Hear From Politicians

“We all know people who are addicted to alcohol or drugs. These people are addicted to money,” Sanders said earlier this year, according to MSNBC. The result? A “philosophical war being waged against the middle-class and working families.”

Cracked Dry Heels - A Silent Plaguette

The art of dealing with cracked bleeding heels. Good advice on restoring your feet to a youthful healthy glow.

Feet need moisture to heal, most drugstore emollients will do. The trick is to remove the offending callouses so the moisture can reach the live skin underneath then keep the calluses at bay.

Start by soaking feet in a warm salt water bath. Sea salt or Epsom salts is best due to their nourishing mineral. Add a few drops of essential oils, such as tea tree, peppermint or lavender, to help clean and disinfect deep into the cracks. Peppermint oil helps cool hot, tired feet while lavender works to heal skin irritations. Tea tree is a great antibacterial and antifungal agent. To keep it simple just soak your feet in hot water will do fine. Even table salt works in a pinch.
