Are you ready to reveal those heels?

cracked feet

Heads up Ladies & Gents.  Are your heels ready for the warm weather, or, are your heels cracked, dry, and generally pretty embarrassing?

How many of us leave the salon with a beautiful pedicure, but within a few days our heels are dry, and cracked? Do you know what some of the causes are for cracked heels? According to a website I visited there are many reasons why you might be having this problem.  In some instances the cracked heels might have a medical reason.  Go to the link at the end of this list and see whether you should visit a podiatrist.

Causes of Cracked Heels

  • Walking around barefooted or in footwear such as thongs, sling or open backed sandals which help to dry out the feet.
  •  Genetics. Skin type is often genetic. Some heels get thick very thick callus but don’t crack where as others have no callus at all but crack badly after a day on the beach.
  • Long standing at work or home, especially on hard floors.
  • Increased weight which causes increased pressure on the heels causing callus.
  • With increased weight the heel is also required to expand more and hence can often crack more.
  • Ill fitting shoes or sandals that don’t support the heels from expanding sideways under pressure. via Heel Callus Cracked heels – Podantics Podiatry Adelaide.

Let’s get started now, and come up with a routine, which will keep those cracked heels under your control day after day. Now, I must share with you that it is not magic. Below I share  my home remedy for your consideration. I followed this procedure for about three weeks, and after a period of time there was considerable improvement.  I use a callosity scraper when my feet are dry. You can find a scraper similar to the one I used at:
