Default Cracked Feet

Hi everyone,

My feet stay cracked and I am having the hardest time keeping them moisturized. They eat up the lotion. Are there an ideas on how to keep them moisturized. Thanks in advance. My doctor hardly ever looks at my feet when I visit.

When mine are like that I like to use food-based oils instead of lotions. Lots of lotions have stuff like alcohol so it doesn't leave a residue but then they don't work as well.

I've rubbed olive oil, coconut oil, and bacon grease (not at the same time) on my feet and they have all worked well. Just slap some socks on so that you don't make a mess.

I use 'heel to toe' intensive care, I purchase it at a beauty supply store. A little goes a long way, just a small jar (17.5 g) runs about $2.50. Wear socks after applying, has lanolin and beeswax. Works well for me
