Hydration

Ensure that you apply an adequate amount of moisturiser to your feet daily. This will help the skin stay well hydrated.

Pay particular attention to the heels of your feet which usually require a heavier moisturiser as the skin is much thicker than other areas of the feet. You may find that creams are more effective in this regard.
