Dry and cracked heels are a common foot condition. Cracked heels not only make you uncomfortable in public but also causes pain. We spend a lot of money and time caring for our face but mostly ignore our feet. Lack of care and proper cleaning leads to cracked heels with thickened skin and yellow or brownish calluses around the heel edges. Both children and adults can get affected by this.
Causes of cracked heels
There are many causes of cracked heels. When our skin gets dry, we apply pressure or stand for a long time, the fat pad under our heels expands the calluses around the heels and gets cracked. Poorly fit, or uncomfortable shoes can also result in cracked heels.

Here in this article, we are going to discuss some most effective ways to prevent heel cracks.
Drink more water
The first thing you need to do is hydrating your body. When your body once lost moisture, the heels start to produce dry and thick skin around your heels. So, grab a bottle and fill it up with water to keep your body hydrated and prevent dry and cracked heels.
Use cotton socks and Unicorn slippers.
Damp socks and uncomfortable shoes can cause infection and cracked heels. Be comfy at home and use cotton socks and comfortable slippers. Cotton socks allow your skin to breathe, and Unicorn Slippers will give you a cozy feeling.
Soak and exfoliate your heels
The skin around your heels becomes dry and thick. When you apply pressure on your heels, it splits and cracks. Before wearing socks and slippers:
- Soak your feet in the lukewarm water for 25 to 30 minutes.
- Rub your heels with a loofah or a foot scrubber to exfoliate dead skin.
- Dry your wet feet using a soft cloth, apply a petroleum jelly layer to lock in moisture.
Use balms and moisturizers before wearing Unicorn Slippers
The most effective treatment for cracked heels is using balms and moisturizers. These balms contain some ingredients like salicylic acid, alpha-hydroxy acid, and urea, which exfoliate and soften your dry skin. You can also use shea butter, jojoba oil, glycerin, and Vitamin E as moisturizers. Honey is also a great natural moisturizer with antimicrobial and antibacterial properties to cure cracked heels.
Use a liquid bandage
You can also use liquid, gel, or spray bandages to cover your cracked heels. A liquid bandage is an effective way to treat deep heel cracks. It helps to reduce pain and dirt free and makes it germ-free. Liquid bandages make the process of healing faster.
Unicorn Slippers and these remedies can help you to get rid of your dry and cracked heels. But if your heel cracks are severe, painful, and bleeds, see your doctor preventing any infection.
