Transcript:Best Products to Treat Cracked Heels

Hi! I'm Debbie Anderson for About.com! Having cracked heels or dried feet is not only embarrassing, but it can also be painful! So today I'm going to cover some of the best products to treat dry feet and cracked heels and how to use them!

Over-the-Counter Products Can Be Applied to Cracked Heels Easily

There are many products on the open market for treating dried or cracked heels. If you're looking for an over-the-counter product to quickly apply to your dried and cracked heels while on-the-go, apply Blue Goo Cracked Heel Foot Softener, Gold Bond Foot Cream, or Miracle Heel Stick to the cracked and dried out areas of your feet twice a day for rapid relief. These products require no preparation work before application and can be applied directly to problem areas as many times as you need until you receive the results you want.

For Severely Cracked Heels, Try More Intense Moisturizing Products

However, if you have severely cracked heels, take a little more time out of your day by applying Miracle Foot Repair Cream, Heel Rescue Superior Moisturizing Foot Cream, or Kerasal Foot Ointment to help the problem. Although these treatments instruct you to thoroughly clean and dry your feet prior to the application of these treatments, each of these three products tends to heal deeper levels of “severely” damaged foot skin more effectively.

The downside is that you need more time when using these cracked heel treatments. As an added tip, place a clean pair of cotton socks on your feet prior to taking a step anywhere after treatment in order to avoid slips and falls. Finally, if you're looking for an effective cracked heel treatment for adult diabetic feet, apply a liberal amount of Flexitol heel balm to your dried cracked heels prior to putting on cotton socks.
