What are cracked feet?
You may find your feet dry and crack, especially in the summer months when you wear sandals or walk around barefoot. The danger is that cracked feet may bleed and become infected.
What are the common symptoms of cracked feet?
You’ll notice a build-up of hard, dry skin, mainly on the heels, but possibly also on the balls of your feet, outsides of your big toes, and anywhere that shoes and boots may rub.
Who gets cracked feet?
Anyone can get dry cracked feet, but it’s more common as you get older, as aging skin contains less moisture and oil.
Can cracked feet be cured or treated?
There are a number of over-the-counter chemical treatments for cracked feet, such as those containing synthetic ‘uric acid’. Many of these leave your feet dangerously greasy.
Many people scrape their dry cracked feet with a pumice stone – a scratchy bit of volcanic rock – or a raspy ‘cheese-grater’ foot file, but these can leave the skin feeling rough and looking no better.
What is the best cure for cracked feet?
To help with cracked feet, you should moisturise them every day, avoid footwear with open or high heels, treat yourself to an occasional pedicure, and drink at least 8 pints of water daily.
The best moisturiser for cracked feet is 100% natural and highly absorbent, with no steroids, parabens or chemicals. Our Hydrating Therapy Balm uniquely contains Zander, an ancient lake sediment with the ability to penetrate and nourish the skin. Rather than dead skin peeling off to reveal new skin underneath, it plumps up and softens the ‘dead’ skin, bringing it back to life.
