Cracked heels can be sore and unsightly, and may even lead to bleeding and dangerous bacteria entering your body as cellulitis. However, with 30 per cent of people more aware of the condition of their feet in the summer - compared with just five per cent in winter - now would be a good time to pay attention to them. Emma Supple, a podiatrist, said: "Feet are hardworking – or at least they should be! Sitting on a couch all day will keep them pristine, but by staying healthy and moving around, they naturally attract dirt and grime that can cause hard skin and cracked heels."
 
"These are commonly caused by a loss of ‘elasticity’ in the skin when dryness sets in, or when the skin thickens and cracks or breaks under pressure, which can occur through everyday activities such as walking and exercise." She suggests you should add scrubbing feet, moisturizing them, and choosing the right shoes into your daily routine.
