Our expert says:
Cracked heels are especially common in summer. Wearing open shoes causes the skin on the heels to lose moisture, the skin then cracks rather than bends with the foot when your walking. See a podiatrist to have hard skin removed and the cracks treated. Try to wear closed shoes and socks and use a good heel cream every day.
