A regular daily body moisturizer is not going to do enough to benefit cracked heels. Podiatrist Jacqueline Sutera, DPM, recommends using creams that are specially formulated for tougher foot skin, including Amlactin and Kerasal. “These have gentle but effective acids that help break down the callus a little at a time,” she says.

You can help the smoothing process along with a foot file, says Dr. Sutera, who recommends using it one to two times per week when you’re in the first stages of treating cracks. “Remember to go in one direction and not back and forth, which can rip up skin more,” she says. You can use a manual file or battery-operated one. The tools you use on your feet should remain yours and yours alone—don’t share them with family," advises Sutera. She also recommends cleaning and drying them thoroughly after using and replacing them every two to three months.
