Do your heels resemble a phone that has fallen without a screen guard more than they resemble feet

Cracked heels are a common problem that can be caused by a number of factors, including dry skin, excessive sweating, wearing ill-fitting shoes, and medical conditions such as diabetes or eczema. The best way to prevent cracked heels is to keep your feet moisturized. You can do this by applying a thick moisturizer to your heels after every shower or bath. If your heels are already cracked, you can try soaking them in warm water for 10-15 minutes before applying a moisturizer. You can also use a pumice stone to gently exfoliate the dead skin on your heels.

Try applying petroleum jelly or a thick cream to your heels before bed. Wear socks to help keep the moisture in. Using a foot file to gently remove dead skin and avoiding walking barefoot can also help with cracked heels.

Here are some additional tips for preventing and treating cracked heels:

  • Limit the amount of time you spend in hot water.

  • Use a mild, fragrance-free soap.

  • Avoid harsh scrubbing.

  • Wear shoes that fit well and provide good support.

  • Keep your feet clean and dry.

  • Moisturize your feet regularly, especially after showering or bathing.
