Insufficient foot care leads to cracked heels, which look bad and feel bad. The fissures in heels are cut wounds that can get deep into the dermis, which is underneath the epidermis. This is when they become painful. Xerosis or dry skin is the main cause, and usually there is also some mineral deficiency behind it. Here is how you can heal your cracked heals:
- Supplement with Omega-3 fatty acids – fish, cod especially, contain it, but you can also get these from nuts and similar foods.
- Supplement with zinc. You will find plenty of it in seafood, spinach, pumpkin seeds, nuts, cocoa, beans, and mushrooms.
- Apply petroleum jelly – apply to heals and leave on overnight.
