Most of the women will encounter this problem. I have it sometimes. This is usually caused by dry skin. It do not looks good at all. Cracked heels are unattractive and annoying. When the cracks are deep, they will hurt. It can bleed and get infected too.
I tried applying generous amount of foot lotion and put on socks before going to bed, but still.... the dryness comes back if I skipped that for a week.
Then, I came accross this Dermalife Hydrating Heel Patch from Guardian. It sounds good & convenience to me. So, I bought it for a try! However, it is kind of pricey for a 8-course treatment (RM 24).
I tried it for 2 days with socks & without socks. Poor thing. I still gotta put on socks when using it. Else, the edge of the patch will rub against the bedsheet & the whole thing is gone! Haha... or maybe I am too rough.
Anyway, I think that cracked heels are a long term treatment. Once I get my current heels treated, then I guess I gotta be a bit hardworking to maintain it.
