Foot Lotions Help Soothe Dry Skin
Dry skin on your feet – which often affects the soles and heels – is not a dangerous condition, but it can feel painful and look unsightly. If dry skin starts to crack, then bleed, however, infection can follow – an especially serious problem for anyone with a chronic disease such as diabetes, or a lowered immune system due to age or illness.

Using a foot lotion is a great way to treat and prevent dry skin on your feet and heels. Please read on for information on additional therapies.

Use a Foot Lotion, Other Products to Treat Dry Skin on Feet and Heels
The best way to treat and also prevent dry, cracked heels and general dry skin on your feet is to use a good therapeutic foot lotion, foot balm or foot lotion to keep feet smooth. Avoid using a foot lotion that contains alcohol, however, as these products can ADD to your dry feet problems (alcohol is a drying agent).

In addition to using a foot lotion, you can try the following:
  • Use a pumice stone or sand stone to file the hard dry skin, the smooth on a foot lotion to better penetrate the skin.
  • Use a foot lotion especially designed for nighttime use, and wear socks to help the foot lotion better absorb into your skin during sleep.
  • Check your shoes for tight spots and areas that rub on a regular basis.
  • Use insoles and other corrective devices to eliminate points of friction.
  • Wear comfortable shoes with a wide toe box.
Make sure you avoid getting foot lotion, foot lotion and foot lotion between your toes, as the additional moisture can lead to bacterial infections such as athlete’s foot. If the dry, cracked skin on your feet and heels worsens, or bleeding occurs, consult a podiatrist.
