Your feet are naturally dryer than the rest of your body. Therefore, during the colder months, indoor heating can dry your feet out, overtime leading to painful cracks in your skin. If you work on your feet all day or wear improper footwear this can also cause calloused heels and feet.
Some moisturizers contain skin-softening agents, such as urea or salicylic acid, which can help remove dead skin. Be consistent with your moisturisers. Creams like Dermatonics Once Heel Balm only require application once a day. 96% of users demonstrated an improvement after one 60ml tube. Dermatonics increases hydration in footskin by over 250% over 14 days.
