5 Common Causes of Dry, Cracked Heels

Are you struggling with dry, cracked heels? You're not alone. These pesky heel issues can be caused by a variety of reasons, but have no fear – we're here to shed light on the common culprits and guide you toward solutions to reach your healthiest, happiest feet.

What Causes Dry, Cracked Heels?

1. Lack of Moisture: The skin on the soles of our feet is naturally drier than the rest of our body. Environmental factors like dry weather or excessive heat can further strip away moisture, leaving your heels dehydrated.

2. Repetitive Pressure and Friction: Our feet, particularly our heels, bear the brunt of our daily activities. Whether it's walking, running, or just standing for extended periods, our heels endure significant pressure and friction, leading to thickened, dry skin.

3. Open-Back Shoes: While open-back shoes may be fashionable, they expose your heels to the elements. Insufficient cushioning in such footwear can increase friction and pressure, making your heels more susceptible to dryness.

4. Buildup of Dead Skin Cells: Neglecting regular exfoliation and moisturizing can result in a buildup of dead skin cells, making your heels appear rough and dry.

5. Medical Conditions: In some cases, underlying medical conditions like eczema, psoriasis, thyroid disorders, diabetes, or fungal infections can contribute to dry and cracked heels.

Feel The Magic of Solemate Heel Repair Balm

This balm comes in a convenient stick form, making it incredibly easy to use. The real magic, however, lies in its formula. Packed with a potent blend of vegan squalane, botanical oils, and a wax trio, Solemate nourishes, repairs, and protects dry, cracked heels. The wax trio not only locks in moisture but also shields your skin from harmful environmental stressors.

The results speak for themselves. After just one application, you'll notice a remarkable difference in the texture and appearance of your heels. Say goodbye to dry, rough, or cracked heels and hello to smoother, healthier, and more comfortable feet.

To use, simply apply the Solemate Heel Repair Balm day and night after your shower. Dry your feet thoroughly, then generously apply the balm to your heels, feet, toes, and the bottom of your feet. Pay special attention to those rough, dry, or cracked areas. Give the balm a few minutes to absorb, and before you know it, your heels will be silky smooth to the touch.
