Dry, Cracked Feet
What Causes Rough Skin on the Feet?
The feet are pretty amazing if you think about it. They support our body weight and get us from A to B; so the least we can do for them is to make sure they’re healthy. A good place to start is with the skin on your feet.
Because the feet support the body, the skin on your soles contains lots of fat cells to provide extra padding, protection and shock absorption. Studies have shown that wearing sandals and flip flops with open heels can cause problems for your feet. Most of these shoes don’t offer much support for your feet which can essentially cause that extra fatty padding in your feet to stretch out, which this can lead to painful pressure on your feet. Another side effect of wearing flip flops is that your skin is now at a higher risk of becoming dehydrated and dry due to the constant air exposure – not to mention getting scratched or cut from objects on the ground and floor.
