Soon Summer knocks and sets in. You will want to get on your feet and put on your gorgeous sandals or just your simple flip flops. It is time to take a look at the heels of your feet: the unsung heroes of your everyday life. What do you see? Are they dry, flaky, itchy, bleeding? If you suffer from any of these situations, it is very important that you take action now. Reade on!
Firstly, let’s have a look, why are you in this situation? Here is the ultimate formula to getting cracked heels:
- Prolonged standing and/or on hard floor at either work or at home;
- Continuous exposure to water or wet environment;
- Suffer from diabetes, Thyroid, obesity, various skin conditions;
- Wearing exposing footwear or wearing shoes that do not fit properly;
- Constant neglect of foot care.
The list can be longer, but I limited so that you get the image. To fix the problem, you can choose to go for a professional treatment ($$$$$) or you can choose to treat it yourself at home ($).
Thankfully, there are some cost-effective remedies and easy ways to make them look supple and beautiful again. And, if you start now, you will be ready just in time for the beginning of the summer with nice heels to show off!
