Titilayo Ilori

Having cracked heels can be embarrassing. Women with cracked heels find it difficult to wear the footwear of their choice. Cracked heels make a woman's feet appear dirty and unkempt, which is why you must do all you can to avoid it. Read how to prevent cracked heels below.

1. Scrub your feet always

It is important to always scrub your feet every morning. Once you are in the shower, apply soap on each foot to make it soft and get a foot scrub to help you scrub better.

2. Apply moisturizer

It is not only the body that needs moisture. Your feet also need moisture. Use a good foot cream that can penetrate into the skin on your feet.

3. Avoid shoes that are too small

Do not wear small, tight shoes or slippers that slap against the soles of your feet. This has a negative effect on our feet if it is done repeatedly.

4.  Avoid blisters

Sometimes, we wear shoes for a whole day and it causes blisters on our feet. The best way to avoid this is to place a plaster on the area prone to blisters.

5. Walk barefoot once in a while

There are times you need to walk barefoot to allow your feet breathe and move freely. Walking with shoes all the time can make your feet weak.
