What Causes Cracked Heels

Cracked heels are caused by stiff, hard skin on the being put under stress, eventually something has to give and the hard skin on the heels cracks.

Hard skin on the heels can be materialise if the skin is dehydrated by the environment the sufferer is frequently in or the weather. Which makes sense when you consider that ladies wearing open shoes are the largest group of sufferers.

Avoid Deeply Cracked Heels

Cracked heels vary in severity from slight cracks looking like sand patterns on the heels to very deep and severe cracks. Slight cracks are not generally troublesome, but deeper cracked heels are more likely to be uncomfortable, even painful and if not treated and cared for could bleed and even become infected. So care and prevention is key.

How to Treat Cracked Heels?

The key to preventing cracked skin on the heels is to have a daily foot skin care routine. Ideally your routine will be designed to keep the feet soft and supple which will help to avoid the stress which causes cracked heels.

Using a combination of the Syrinx Za Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar and Hydrating Therapy Balm is clinically proven to prevent cracked heels when used daily as advised here on the Cracked Heels and Feet Page.

Also ensure that you remove excessively thick skin on the heels with hygienic foot file and also try to wear sensible shoes and avoid excessive foot sweating and damp feet.
