When your feet don’t feel good, nothing feels good. After all, our feet provide support to the rest of our body. Cracked heels can really make your feet sore, but fortunately there are some remedies that work quickly and effectively.
One of the best ways to get healthy, soft feet again is to use a medicated heel cream or lotion.
How Cracked Heel Cream Works
There are many different types of foot creams, with many different types of ingredients and claims. For example, there are foot creams that moisturize the skin but also add vitamins A, C, and E to help revitalize and rebuild healthy new skin cells. Some foot creams include essential oils, such as eucalyptus oil, to moisturize and replenish the skin naturally. There are other foot creams that help by relieving pain with an external analgesic cream. After applying these creams, you may find it helpful to put socks on. This allows the cream to absorb into the cracked areas of the foot to provide maximum healing. Apply cream twice daily for best results.
Best Cream for Cracked Heels
Heel Tastic Heel Therapy can be very helpful in eliminating cracked heels and it takes the pain away quickly. A combination of imported Indian Neem and Karanja oils restore the heels to a healthy condition. Not only will this medicated heel balm soften skin and repair cracks, it will also soothe any pain. Heel Tastic balm is easy to apply without making a mess, since it is applied from a tube, similar to a solid deodorant.
O’Keeffe’s Cream is great for people who have very dry, cracked feet because it contains Allantoin. Allantoin protects the skin, but it also really dives through thick, dry skin to get the moisture in. Another really great feature of O’Keefe’s is that it traps in the moisture. It adds this moisture without a greasy feeling. If you prefer your foot cream non-scented, you will be happy with O’Keefe’s Cream, as this formula is odorless.
Zim’s Crack Cream is a great foot cream that was developed by a pharmacist. This cream is natural, and is an herbal-based liquid. You’re not only limited to simply applying this to your feet. You can use this treatment anywhere you have dry skin, from hands to elbows. One of the really great things about this cream, besides the nearly instant healing, is that there is no animal testing on any of the Zim’s line of products. It is best when applied at night.
