When you’re experiencing cracked heels, don’t just immediately tend to your feet - grab a water bottle, fill it up, and start guzzling. “Make sure you’re drinking enough water,” says Garrett Moore, DPM, a podiatrist at UCHealth Stapleton Foot and Ankle Center. “Your skin can lose around a liter of water throughout the day - more in dry climates - so keeping yourself hydrated goes a long way toward preventing or soothing dry, cracked skin,” he says.

Whether you’re trying to prevent cracked heels or heal them, the solution is the same: stay moisturized. “Use a good moisturizer at least once a day, possibly more. While there are various moisturizers and barrier creams out there - and many reasons to use certain types - one of the biggest problems I run into with patients is lack of consistency,” Dr. Moore says. “Moisturizer needs to be applied to the feet daily - once in the morning and once at night before bed. This will help you keep fluids in your skin, minimize loss, and even attract more from the underlying tissues (or even the surrounding environment!).
