Healing Cracked Heels in Winter

Begin by soaking your feet in warm water to soften the skin and prepare it for exfoliation.

Warm Foot Soaks

Use a gentle foot scrub or a pumice stone to exfoliate the dry, dead skin on your heels, promoting healing.

Gentle Exfoliation

Apply a thick, hydrating foot cream or petroleum jelly to your heels daily. Consistent moisturizing helps prevent further cracking and promotes healing.

Moisturize Regularly

Opt for socks made of natural, moisture-wicking materials to keep your feet dry and prevent excessive dryness.

Wear Moisture-Wicking Socks

Wear shoes that provide proper support and cushioning, minimizing pressure on your heels. Avoid open-back shoes in cold weather.

Choose Appropriate Footwear

Dehydration can contribute to dry skin. Ensure you drink an adequate amount of water to keep your skin hydrated from within.

Stay Hydrated

Use a humidifier in your home to add moisture to the air. This helps prevent the air from becoming too dry and further contributing to cracked heels.
