How do you get rid of cracked heels?

How do you get rid of those dry cracks in heels? I am a guy and the balls of my feet (my heels) get very dry and cracked. I have tried lotions, sanding them with stones and even cutting the calouses and cracks out but the dryness and cracks just come back.

How can i get rid of the cracks and the avoid them from coming back?

Take a shower before bed. Apply lotion to your feet. Put on socks. Go to bed. After a few times it should be much better. Obviously use a deep moisturizing lotion since it's an on going problem.

gena pedi cure foot treatment cream has been the best i've found. i use it once in the day and once at night everyday before putting my socks on (or not if i'm wearing sandals) and i never have cracked heel or dry feet.  they sell it at sally beauty supply

How do you get rid of cracked heels (forever)?....stop moisture loss. Filing off dead skin makes the heel look better, and applying creams or lotions plumps up the outer layer of epidermis...but it is an endless process unless you stop the skin from drying in the first place. Sole Mates are nitrile coated socks that create a moisture conserving chamber that allows the healthy skin to stay soft and moist. Does it cure the problem? No, no product does, but it does cure the end result of moisture loss...dry cracked heels. Try them. Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back

Well, my brother has the same problem before but he only used Petroleum jelly after bath and before putting on his sock. Now, his good, probably you can also try it.

Hi, thanks for reminding me about Petroleum Jelly. Yes, that was exactly my daughter recommends for cracked heels.

I invented a nitrile coated sock, because at 70, I couldn't afford regular pedicures. Solemates keeps lotion or petroleum jelly on the skin and not absorbed by the sock material. Even more important, it keeps the skin from losing moisture, thereby keeping feet soft and crack free, as long as you wear them on a regular basis.....beats scraping away dead skin every day!
