Being one of the most common foot concerns, especially a concern that is searched more during sandal season, it is therefore unsurprising that there are a plethora of reasons as why people find themselves asking ‘why do I have dry cracked heels?’. The causes include:
As with many skin solutions, foot care is no difference – exfoliating, cleansing and moisturizing is key!
The most common way to reduce the build-up of dry skin and improve cracked heels is to use a pumice stone or exfoliant and scrub! Regularly exfoliating the dead skin will stop the build-up becoming problematic. A little bit every day is much better than a mammoth session once a month!
The best time to exfoliate is during a bath, after a shower or if you have time to sit and soak your feet for 10 mins in warm water with a little product added as exfoliating on warm, softened skin makes the job easier, is less aggressive and a great foot soak is always soothing for your mental health. Three birds one pumice stone, right?
Once your feet are cleaned, exfoliated and thoroughly dried we recommend the Ameliorate Intensive Foot Treatment because, although the sole of your foot has sweat glands they aren’t home to oils glands meaning your feet do need some assistance in forming a soft, protective barrier.
