Nothing spoils the look of a great pair of sandals more than cracked heels and scaly feet.
I’ve got a home remedy product combo that works wonders to whip rough feet into shape fast.
My patients know how much I love really stylish and nice shoes – sandals included. I want soft and smooth feet in my nice sandals. I also just love the feel of my feet when they are soft, hydrated and free from cracks, calluses and roughness.
Men and women are prone to thick and rough feet. I’ve seen it on skin exams for years. Nobody likes having rough feet, and the skin can get so thick that it hurts. One pedicure helps but consistent maintenance is required to keep feet skin soft and attractive through sandal season.
Why do you get rough skin on your feet?
The most common causes of cracked heels and scaly feet are:
1. Pressure and friction from wearing sandals and walking barefoot.
This is actually a natural protective response to rough use. Calluses are a natural protective thickening to specific areas of skin exposed to repeated pressure. The entire ball of the foot, lateral side of the foot, and heel can thicken with or without calluses.
