Cracked feet are caused by a deficiency in vitamins, but is also by ageing, obesity, pregnancy, psoriasis, a fungal infection, or even hypothyroidism. It is not a very painful affair, but could sometimes cause discomfort, when it cracks deep.
This in no way should make you think cracked feet should be taken lightly. Sometimes it can lead to infections and ulcers when brought about by another medical condition, in which case you should see a doctor as soon as possible.
We'd like to think you are dealing with just normal cracked heels, and for which we have a few remedies to use, that will totally rid you of the uncomfortable sight:
They are highly concentrated moisturisers that soften and repair dry, cracked feet.

Those cracks don't stand a chance.
Make a thick salve out of apple cider vinegar, rice flour mix, and 2 spoons of honey.
Drop in a spoon of olive oil.
Dip your feet and soak for about 15 minutes in warm water.
Apply the salve to your heels.
