There are many different causes for dry, cracked heels and feet, including:
- Pressure from long periods standing up or obesity
- Shoes that do not fit properly or open-backed shoes
- A lack of vitamins, minerals and moisture
- Ageing skin
- Having damp feet for extended periods of time
- Athletes foot
- Psoriasis and eczema
How does Flexitol Heel Balm work?
Urea is the active ingredient in Flexitol Heel Balm which reduces dry, cracked skin by drawing moisture into the skin cells and preventing further water loss. It also speeds up the renewal process of new healthy skin, encouraging dry skin to be shed.
Flexitol Heel Balm and diabetes
People who suffer from diabetes are more prone to health issues with their feet, including having very dry skin. This is often caused by the feet not producing as much sweat as they should.
Flexitol Heel Balm is recommended for use in people with diabetes for daily use as part of a daily foot care regime. Within 2-4 weeks of use, most people will notice a significant improvement in their skin integrity.
