The complete two months of snuggling under the quilt are the most desired part in the winter season, but it can also be really difficult to deal with as it can take a heavy toll on the hands and feet. This is a time when we exactly want to wrap them up and hide them until and unless the season of chill blows away completely. Though this isn’t the best you can do but also heading towards it is not that impossible. 

In damp conditions, artificial heating can be extremely tiring for the feet so we are here to share a few Dos and Don’ts that should be done for utmost care of the feet. There’s a lot of things that you can take as measures from feet soak to wearing the right kind of socks.

The most common problem that is faced by every individual irrespective of gender or age is the trouble of cracked heels. The sensitive skin on the bottom of the foot or the heels gets too dry and splits alarmingly to leave painful cracks which are also known as fissures. The cracked heels may only not be painful but can also lead to serious infections. Getting rid of this matter is the ultimate goal but first, we need to know the reasons for the circumstance.

Dry feel or cracked heels may occur for several causes, they might be:

  • Cold Weather;
  • Dehydration and Poor Nutrition;
  • Not Enough Moisturization;
  • Very Hot Showers;
  • Harsh Rubbing;
  • Scrubbing Dry Feet;
  • Diabetes; etc…

As Medical Science explains; "It's kind of like if you put a plaster on a balloon and let it harden and blow up the balloon, the balloon will expand the plaster and crack. The heel pad wants to expand outward, but the skin is not pliable enough to expand with it, so it cracks.” As the skin cracks, it starts to bleed and the gap also lets in several pathogens causing various diseases.
