There are a lot of people all over the world who are suffering from the problem of dry feet, but don't know how to cure it. Then there are those people who don't even know what the causes of dry feet are, and hence, they fail to indentify how they became a victim of this problem. As a result, they do not know how to cure it. Then there are those who are have tried every possible cream and lotion available in the market, but have seen no results. Within a small time period itself, such people have realised that they have wasted a lot of their precious money on buying expensive creams and lotions that did not give any results in the end. And there is yet one more category of people, who are negligent towards their problem and ignore it. They do not bother to take care of it, but when people around them spot their dry feet and talk about it, they start to feel embarrassed.
For all these people and for many more, it is important that there is some awareness on the causes and cures of dry feet. One of the most important things to remember is that there are factors around you that can cause this problem, but you may not be able to identify it. Thus, it is important to be very cautious at all times, if you want to save yourself from suffering from dry feet, or are already suffering from it. Take shoes for instance. You may think that there is nothing wrong in wearing shoes, as everyone wears them. It is, after all, a very normal thing with no big deal in it! However, the same shoes that you wear can become a cause of dry feet if they are too big or too small in size. In such cases, there is an unnecessary friction that builds up between the shoe and your skin, and that can lead to dry feet. The same happens when you wear sports shoes without socks, and the material bites on your skin.
It is important to let your feet breathe. Give sometime to your feet everyday where they are free and open. In other words, keep sometime for your feet to be without shoes so that air has adequate contact with your skin.
When choosing shoes, be careful that the materials do not hit hard or harshly on your skin, and are soft and comfortable. Avoid buying shoes of the wrong size and fitting.
Keep your feet clean as much as possible. If a weekly pedicure is not possible, go for a monthly pedicure in a salon. But keep a good foot scrubber at home at all times, and use that once every 3 days or so. Also remember to moisturise your feet well by regular foot massages with coconut oil.
There is a chance that the soap or the shower gel that you use could be harsh on your skin, and could be causing dry feet. Try getting something else instead.
