Cracked, painful heels

Cracked, painful heels
November 23rd, 2016 / Cracked Skin

Are you embarrassed by cracked, painful heels? The summer heat can be brutal to feet, making the skin very dry and thick. Don’t sweat! We offer a simple solution that involves scraping the heels, leaving your skin feeling soft and silky.

Do you wear thongs, flip-flops or jandals during summer for long periods of time? They’re not bad for short walks to the beach, but you wouldn’t want to go for a hike in them! Most thongs don’t provide any support and can lead to foot pain, particularly in the arches and heels. The Vionics we stock at the clinic are a great alternative as they offer arch support to provide your feet with the comfort they deserve.

When was the last time you went beach walking? Summer is a great opportunity to walk barefoot on the sand because it strengthens the small muscles in your feet. This can help to relieve forefoot pain and improve balance. Get some sand between your toes today!
