5. Cracked heels
can be caused by dry skin, cold weather, or if you stand for many hours every day. However, they can be indicators of more serious issues, such as eczema, hypothyroidism, and diabetes. You can treat your heels by soaking them in soapy water for 20 minutes
and scrubbing them with a pumice stone. Then you will need to apply a heavy moisturizer that includes lactic acid, jojoba oil, or shea butter.
You will need to see a doctor if your home treatments aren’t improving your heels at all. There are many treatments your podiatrist can do or prescribe, such as a much stronger moisturizer
. What you can do on a daily basis is check your heels, wash them thoroughly, and wear supportive shoes.
