Treating Dry Cracked Heels

A major cause of dry cracked heels in women comes after menopause. Hormonal changes are a major culprit. All of our glands are changing. The oil glands slow down oil production. There isn't much you can do except for diligent care.


There are a few excellent exfoliate files made especially for feet. Pumice stones work for the younger crowd, but not for us. Cheap Dollar Store foot scrapers don't work. Go to a beauty supply and get a good brand foot exfoliater and foot cream.

Diligence is the major key to keeping your heels soft like they were in your teens. It is possible. Make it a nightly regime; file (exfoliate) and cream every night!

Living in the desert & dealing with menopause I have tried all kinds of lotions and nothing else works better than 1 part Vaseline, 1 part baby lotion and 1 part vitamin E cream. Cured my cracked until they bled palms from swimming!! Magical!!
