  • Du’it has a great product for cracked heels.

  • I use a foot file 2x a week before I shower and rub them with vaseline before the night and put a cotton sock over it. Cheap and easy.

  • Try a good foot balm from a pharmacy,should improve straight away!

  • I was fortunate this year to have won a Dermal Therapy Platinum heel balm cream and it is a very intense cream used for dry cracked heels. In your case you may need a moisturising soak for your feet to soften the skin on a daily basis , then apply the balm . These days pharmacys such as Priceline has so many solutions for dry cracked heels so pop in and talk to someone about it and I am sure someone can give you a recommendation . If it gets worse and it starts bleeding etc , pop in to see a doctor for treatment .

  • There’s a foot soak you can get from Avon called Foot Repair I think. You soak your feet in it and there’s also a cream to rub in and a file to remove dead skin

  • Vicks works really well. I swear by it!

  • I love the Du’it range of products – only products I’ve found really work.

  • I use a combinations of vitamin e oil and almond oil, this has helped me a lot.

  • Hey there have you ever heard of It Works Sydney ? They sell amazing defining gel that totally works for craked heels and other things. Here is the link to the page https://www.facebook.com/ItWorksSydney?ref=hl&focus_composer=true&ref_type=bookmark

  • I use Almond Oil, that I massage into my feet every night when I’m going to bed. Then I put a cute little pair of socks on to keep the oil net to my skin. Once a week I use a foot-file in the morning to get rid of any dead flaky skin. And like many people here, I find it worse in Summer when I wear sandals and flip-flops on my feet.

  • I use paw paw ointment and this works for me, although I do agree with a previous post regarding thongs/sandals — my feet are always horrible in the summer when I wear them !

  • Sounds silly, but if you can refrain from wearing things or sandals it helps. I find this to rear it’s ugly head in the summer time when I’m always in thongs but dissapears in the winter.

  • Coconut oil and glycerin

  • Derma Oil that you can get for a reasonable price in the beauty section at Coles.
    Apply it just before bedtime and then put some socks on.

  • My husband suffers really badly from this he use Multi healing balm
