Of these women, half are choosing to keep their legs and feet covered this summer due to hairy legs and chalky complexions. Another half blame hard skin on the feet and cracked heels as the reasons why they are keeping their legs and feet hidden.

Clancy comments, “I get the most compliments and feel best about myself when I have taken the time to ensure my legs are smooth and hair-free and that my feet are well cared for.”

The prevention of cracked heels is often overlooked in regular foot care. If you are seeking assistance in caring for cracked heels, speak to podiatrist Dr. Mayer Salama, D.P.M. of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama will attend to any of your foot and ankle concerns.

The Truth about Cracked Heels

Cracked Heels

Cracked heels are unappealing, and make it harder for you walk around in sandals. Not only may they look bad, but they can also tear stockings, socks, and wear out your shoes. There are several methods to help restore a cracked heel and prevent further damage.

How do you get them?

Dry skin is the number one culprit in creating cracked heels. Many athletes, walkers, joggers, and even swimmers suffer from cracked heels. Age and skin oil production play a role to getting cracked heels as well.

Promote Healing

Over the counter medicines can help, especially for those that need instant relief, or who suffer from chronic dry feet.

Wear Socks– wearing socks with medicated creams, helps lock in moisture so it can stay on longer.

Moisturizers– applying it both day and night will help alleviate dryness which causes cracking.

Pumice Stones– these remove dead skin, and then you can massage cream onto your foot. This way the cream will be absorbed. The skin needs to be exfoliated; therefore the outer layer dead skin needs removal.
