    Causes of cracked heels

    So what are the causes of those unsightly cracked heels? Cracked heels are usually caused by insufficient moisture.1 Regularly moisturize your feet - daily, if you can. 1

    Cracks can be made worse in many other ways, including cold weather from the seasons before summer, wearing badly fitting shoes, or even soaking in a hot bath for too long. Having diabetes can add to the problem. Aging can be a factor too, as skin loses its ability to stretch as you get older, so cracks are more common. 2

    Oils are stripped from your skin under very hot water, or when you use harsh soaps. 2 So, while regular bathing is encouraged to keep your skin clear, don’t let the water get too hot and avoid soaps with an extreme pH level. 2

    Cracked skin remedies

    There are many different home remedies that you could try to fix the problem. Try soaking your feet in warm water and lemon juice - the acidity of the lemons can be effective in softening rough skin, helping to prevent cracking. 1-3

    There are two methods you can use to treat cracked heels. Remove hard skin surrounding the cracks or rehydrate the skin. Ideally, you should do both, as these methods take care of the cause and the effect. 1-3 To reduce the mess on the floor while you try to smooth out your heels, use Scholl’s Cracked Heel Repair Cream K+.
