Embedded for months in stuffed boots and shoes, our feet barely begin to breathe in the spring and summer. But it is only then that one realizes that one has neglected them! Not having to show them in pretty sandals, we forget to take care of them. Result: feet to dry and cracked skin. How to remedy it naturally?
Let us make our mea culpa, we all make the mistake of neglecting our little feet during the cold months, since we are not obliged to show them. And it is only when we perceive the first rays of the warm sun that we bind ourselves on our feet to take care of them.
However, it must be known that the lack of regular care and especially of hydration affects the aspect of the feet and their health. Indeed, this increases the accumulation of dead skin which in turn increases the risk of corns, callosities and cracked heels.
Remember that the feet play an important role, since it is the part of the body that bears all our weight. Having a fragile skin, the feet undergo a lot of pressure when walking, a factor that can lead to the appearance of cracks.
Indeed, repeated pressures push the skin to trigger a defense mechanism by synthesizing more keratin to make its surface thicker. This promotes the formation of corns. When these are not properly hydrated, they literally end up cracking.
But the repeated pressures are not the only factors accused for the appearance of horns and crevasses. Overweight, standing up for long hours, wearing uncomfortable shoes, or walking barefoot, help these problems.
The cracks on the skin of the feet, especially the heels, are light at first and rarely painful. If they are not treated in time, they pass from surface cracks to deep and painful crevasses. In which case, the intervention of a doctor is essential.
It is to say that the appearance of corns, callosities and cracks are above all the result of a lack of care. This is why it is important to take care of his feet and this throughout the year.
