Dr. Scholl’s® Odour Destroyers® Odour Fighting Foot Powder
Rough, Dry, or Cracked Skin
Dry skin on your feet, or anywhere else, can be treated in a few simple ways:
Moisturizers create a barrier that keeps moisture from escaping from your skin. You should moisturize the affected area several times a day, especially while your skin is still moist, like after a shower. Pat yourself dry, then apply. Thicker and heavier moisturizers work best, or try oils for a longer-lasting barrier.
Take warm, short baths:
Long baths or showers in hot water take the natural oils out of your skin, leaving you feeling dryer. Keep your bathing time to 5-10 minutes, and use warm (not hot!) water.
Use gentle soaps:
Avoid harsh, drying soaps in favour of more gentle cleansers. Some soaps even have added oils or fats for added moisturizing. Antibacterial soaps, fragrances, and alcohol are all drying.
Try a humidifier:
Indoor air can be hot and dry, which can make itching and flaking worse.
Fibres like cotton and silk let your skin breathe and are less irritating.
Calm the itch:
Nonprescription hydrocortisone cream (no more than 1%) can be used to reduce itching or inflammation. You can also try a cold compress.
