One of the best parts about a fresh pedicure is that you will have smooth and supple feet, without any cracked skin on your heels.
If you have dry skin, it can be very irritating to deal with the peeling and the pain which comes together with cracked heels.
In some cases having a pedicure will give you relief, but this happens after the pedicurist uses the pumice stone and the paraffin wax. Afterwards, the feet are as good as new, but your pocket is quite empty as well.
What causes cracked heels and how to prevent them?
In most cases they happen because of dry skin and because you walk on your feet. Some medical conditions including psoriasis and eczema can predispose you to have it.
If you want to prevent them, it is important to avoid open-backed shoes which allow the fat pad that is on the bottom of your heel to spread out and to stretch the skin. You should choose sneakers and properly moisturize your feet before putting your socks and shoes on.
The following remedies will help you to have supple and soft feet in no time.
