Some people have a natural tendency to form 𝐜𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐮𝐬 because of their skin type. 𝐂𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐮𝐬 is an extended area of thickened, hard skin on the sole or sides of the foot.

𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐨𝐧 𝐜𝐚𝐮𝐬𝐞𝐬:

– Wearing open-heeled footwear such as sandals

– Taking hot baths/showers

– Using harsh soaps

– Having cold, dry skin

– Change of weather/temperature

– Standing for long periods of time

No matter the cause of your cracked heels, there are steps you can take to treat them. Use a moisturiser with ingredients like Urea to combat dry skin. Some creams only require application once a day. Check your feet when you take off your shoes and socks to keep track of any changes in case you need to adopt a new regime or seek help.
