Beauty and Skin Care with Cracked Feet

Feet are that part of the body that support your weight and body and make a major fashion statement. If they are not cared for and taken care of well, then the soles of the feet develop flaky patches and crack. Cracked feet are known as heel fissures, are a problem for all ages. When the cracks in the feet are very deep then they split the skin open and thus make it very prone to infection and bleeding. So make sure that you treat the affected feet well before they get any worse.

Such feet are usually caused due to dry skin that makes them more prone to crack. When there is pressure on the feet then the skin splits and one way to avoid this is to keep the feet moisturized. Pay attention to tendons and heels always. Drink more water so that you would be able to fight dehydration and also make sure your feet are clean, smooth, and healthy. A pedicure would help you to keep the feet clean. Do not wear open heeled shoes as this cause a pain on the cracked feet. Wear breathable shoes and always wear socks.

Soak your feet in warm water and apply a lot of baby oil. Pat the feet dry and cover with a plastic wrap so that they are moist. A moisturizing cream with an oil base could help provide the regular requirement of shea butter, vitamin E and aloe. Use a pumice stone on wet feet as it reduces the thickening of skin and help you to maintain the feet well. Scrub the pumice over the heel and let the skin soften.

Do not use a razor blade on such feet as it could cause infection or cut very deeply. Also, do not use scissors, toe nail clipper, cuticle cutter on cracked feet as it causes injury again.

Beauty and skin care regimes thus are incomplete without proper foot care.
