I have tried all the foot lotions and other things I can find in the store, but I am not able to actually get rid of my dry cracked heels. They crack and bleed in places it is so bad. I have tried thick lotion and socks every night. :(

Help!! What do you use on your dry, cracked heels?

I give myself pedicures but it's with professional product from school.

Why not go to a esthetics college and have a student do your feet? Where I go we only charge 10.00

pure shea butter straight from the nut. It really does wonders. Its good for dry skin, sunburns, hair, even diaper rash and you its fairly cheap as well

Quoting MamaTay[Kennedi]:" That happened to me when I was pregnant. OHMYGOD I wanted to scream because nothing worked. Well, having ... [snip!] ... daughter worked. Lol. I would soak my feet in conditioner and then heavy lotion with the aloe infused socks. Hated. My. Life."

When I am pregnant is the only time I don't have problems with my heels cracking and bleeding. LOL

I saw something on Pinterest that said blue listerine and vinegar will make the dry skin rub off. Like soaking you feet. I have this problem and have been recently using my ped egg after a shower and slathering coconut oil and socks

If you can afford it go to a nail salon and get a pedicure with a calus remover done.

Then get a pumis stone and use it every couple days at the end of your shower. Apply some shower wash, Rub it with some pressure but not too much in quick circles. Then rub lotion- i use dr sholes for her or my new fav, gold bond foot cream. Really massage it in good, several times a day.

My heels were cracking real bad last year and I managed to get them better. And then we went on a road trip and they got bad. My left heel was cracking and bleeding. I could hardly walk on it. I started my routine 3 weeks ago after the pedi^ and I have a couple dry spots, but they are almost 100% cleared up. Kind of shocked actually.

I had this happen once, just lotion them after your shower and keep socks on for a couple hours... should improve in a couple days!
