What Causes Dry Feet


Frequently, men and women look forward to wearing their favorite shoes and sandals. They take good care of their footwear and might neglect their feet. It is a common fact that people neglect foot care. Actually there are dozens of ways that people use, abuse, and neglect their feet. Let�s take a closer look at what cause dry feet.

Dry Feet Causes
When was the last time that you really moisturized and exfoliated the skin on your feet? Are you guilty of jumping into a hot shower or bath daily and forgetting to rub lotion or cream on your feet? Forgetting to moisturize those feet after a dip in hot water is one very obvious reason that feet look neglected. Don't fret though, this is an easy to fix problem.

Of course, there are medical conditions that cause dry cracked feet like excess weight or diabetes. See your health care provider for more information on that subject. Studies show that dry cracked feet might lead to other health problems down the line. Consequently, it is vital to tackle this problem immediately. And of course, you wouldn't want your neglected feet displayed to the world in sandals during the summer.

What to Do About Dry Feet/Dry Feet Solutions
Dry cracked feet are screaming for some tender loving care and moisturizing. The body requires a sufficient amount of water to keep skin moisturized. Make sure that you are drinking adequate amounts of water during the day. It is also important to avoid soaking the feet in extremely hot water or taking really hot showers or baths. This is very drying to the feet. Remember to avoid harsh soaps with drying chemicals. Use a moisturizing gentle soap on those delicate feet. Don't stop there. Get in the habit of using a thick oily moisturizer on the feet daily and after a dip in hot water to avoid dryness.

Here are more tips: Every night, gently rub some petroleum jelly on the bottoms of the feet and slip on some cotton socks. This will seal in moisture and help to soften skin on feet while you are sleeping. Exfoliate your feet on a regular basis with a gentle natural scrub made with water and oatmeal or try using a product like the Blissful Foot Pod or Ped Egg to smooth skin. Remember to generously moisturize afterwards. Learn to pamper your feet with the tips here. Soon your feet will thank you by looking great.
