Summer time means sandals, flip flops and walking barefoot on the beach. The last thing you want to do is cover your feet with sneakers to hide visibly dry, cracked skin.
Unfortunately, cracked skin is a very common occurrence, especially in the heel area. The rims of your feet experience the most pressure when you walk or stand, and that pressure can cause skin to split, according to Mayo Clinic.
But using a thick moisturizer multiple times a day can help combat and even repair dry heels, advises Dr. Lawrence Gibson from Mayo Clinic, noting that it’s especially important to care for cracked feet if you have diabetes (high blood sugar and poor circulation are common causes for dry skin).
There are lots of creams, peels and lotions to heal cracked heels, but one in particular is getting a ton of love from Walmart shoppers. More than 2,700 people have left reviews of Profoot’s Care Heel Rescue Superior Moisturizing Cream — and 2,500 of those reviews are near-perfect with four- or five-star ratings.
The non-greasy, Argan oil-rich, fragrance-free formula is a favorite among shoppers:
“I could never say I have the prettiest feet but thanks to ProFoot they are the smoothest and most moisturized! No scrubbing or pumice stones needed,” wrote a reviewer, who tested the product for free. “This awesome light feeling, well absorbing, and non oily lotion works wonders. I will never try another product again, it even got rid if the dry patchy areas of my elbows.”
Another raved, “It softens my heels like nothing I've ever used before and you get a great amount of product for the price. If you have rough dry feet, you have to give this a try.”
Profoot recommends that users apply the lotion two times each day to any problem areas, and users say that it can repair cracked feet in just days.
“Best foot cream yet,” one happy reviewer wrote. “I went looking for another heel crack cream. I found this cream instead. it goes on smoothly and is a rich non greasy formula. I have been applying it two times a day with great results in just three days. I am 62 and trying to get my feet summer ready!”
It seems as though everybody is swearing by the effectiveness of this product, including one long-time user.
“I have used this heel creme for a couple of years,” wrote the loyal customer. “I love it! No more cracked heels or feet, Period! I use it two times a day, morning and night. Even my pedi gal is amazed how smooth my feet are. Thank you Pro Foot! The design of the container makes sure I don't miss a drop.”
