Cracked heels are a really annoying problem, which can appear on anyone no matter what age you are. The reason they crack is because you may be standing on your feet for too long, obesity, not wearing proper shoes, using cosmetics which is harsh for your skin, and if your skin is not moisturized enough.

Your heels get thick and dry. They may also start itching, peel, turn red and inflamed. Not only your feet look unattractive, but having cracked heels can cause many health problems. That’s why you should take precautions and heal them before they start to bleed and cause unbearable pain.
