Why Your Heels Split, and How To Prevent It Today!

Feel Healthier Heels Today!

 

Now that we’re in the heart of winter, you’re probably feeling a little cold, a little tired, and more than a little dry. Though your hands, face, and lips are usually the body parts most often associated with winter dryness, two parts of your body often overlooked (but shouldn’t be) are your heels.

In fact, split heels can cause you problems with every step you take. And these problems don’t simply stop once your skin breaks. Split heels can eventually lead to bleeding, severe pain, and infections. Making matters worse is that your heels feel this pain and pressure all day long, which is why your heels split, as the expansion of your feet leads dry-impacted skin to literally break open. (1)

Thankfully, there’s never been a better time to PRESERVE your heels, and for you to enjoy SMOOTH and RADIANT skin on the bottom of your feet all winter long!

In this blog we talk about the reasons your heels split in the winter, and how you can enjoy PAIN-FREE and CRACK-FREE heels today!

Split heels often become a problem in the winter months, when the dry weather can cause issues for not only your feet, but your entire body. But one part of your body not usually thought of as an easy target of dryness is the heel. Well, split heels are actually super common, so common that there’s a name for it – heel fissures.

But before your heels start to split, you'll probably notice the skin there becoming rough. Dryness is a common culprit of this, but so is an infection caused by dangerous fungi you don’t want, leading to a condition we’ve all heard of – athlete’s foot. This condition can not only affect your heels, but also the bottom of your feet and your toes. (2)

But perhaps one of the most common problems leading to split skin is dryness. And now - the heart of the winter - seems to be the time this hurts most. It’s also the best time to get out in front of this problem, as leaving the skin on your heels to split, and then for those splits to worsen, can lead to problems walking and severe discomfort and pain. (3)

 

QUICK TIP: Less moisture in winter can mean deteriorating foot and heel health. Moisturize your feet and enjoy smoother skin today with the 100% ALL-NATURAL HYDRATING INGREDIENTS in GARNER’S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL BODY MOISTURIZER PACKAGE! (4)

 

Not only are split heels super painful, but they’re also the root of potentially even worse problems, like cellulitis. Now before you let this skin infection disrupt your life, you need to know the STEPS you should take BEFORE they split, and what causes them to crack. Two of the major causes of split heels are the cold and dry weather, and also the hot showers and baths you enjoy to fight the cold. (5)

 

Don't forget - your whole foot can suffer from dryness and cracking! Preserve the health of your heels and feet with moisturizing VITAMIN E found in GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL CUTICLE OIL!

 

Another potential reason for your split heels are the skincare products you use. Many over-the-counter skincare products are harsh and can irritate your skin. To keep your heels moisturized – and from splitting – be sure to avoid the chemicals and artificial ingredients in over-the-counter skincare products. Instead, go ALL-NATURAL with the ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS in GARNER’S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL BODY MOISTURIZER PACKAGE! (5)

Another potential cause for your split heels is the increased heating inside your home during winter. During these cold and dry months, many people walk barefoot when indoors, which can potentially cause split heels. Another factor that can cause split heels is the reduced humidity artificial heating can cause. (6)

RUN YOUR LIFE

 

 

So now that we know that split heels are (obviously) bad, let's discuss how to PREVENT them. The number one way to prevent split heels is to simply MOISTURIZE. Moisturizing your heels twice a day can not only help protect your heels from splitting, but can also keep the rest of your body radiant and hydrated.

Knowing you need to moisturize is important, but so is knowing when to moisturize. Basically, you should moisturize after your shower or bath, and then before you go to sleep. Putting on socks before you go to sleep will also help PRESERVE your moisture, while keeping your heels SMOOTH and RADIANT. (7)

 

Moisturize your feet and simultaneously improve the growth of your nails with the 100% ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS found in GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL CUTICLE OIL!

 

In addition to simply taking cooler showers, you should limit them. This means keeping your showers or baths to no more than ten minutes, as well as drying your heels gently once you step out. This can also keep your heels from potentially splitting due to towel friction. (8)

 

QUICK TIP: Those on their feet for long periods of time can experience split heels. Stand up against cracked heels today with the CHEMICAL-FREE and ALL-NATURAL MOISTURE in GARNER’S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL BODY MOISTURIZER PACKAGE! (9)

 

Another key aspect of achieving and maintaining split-free heels is exfoliating. Try to exfoliate your heels at least once per week, which can help you not only PREVENT the splitting of your feet, but also enjoy BETTER SKIN HEALTH.

It’s also important you take care of your heels in the way you would the rest of your body. This means keeping yourself well-hydrated, especially with drinks that don’t have caffeine in them, like water. Nourishing your body can also help nourish your skin, making it important you eat healthy foods, including your recommended servings of vegetables and fruits – a great way to also enjoy more minerals and vitamins. (10) (11)

Once again, be wary of the products you use on your heels (and your entire body). Certain over-the-counter products may contain chemicals and artificial ingredients that can actually cause your heels to sting – making split heels somehow even more painful. Also, avoid alpha hydroxyl acid and urea – both of which can be found in over-the-counter skincare products, and can irritate your already-irritated heels. (12)
