Do You Have Cold Feet in Winter? Try Heat Retaining Socks

Many people experience cold feet in winter months. This problem is a nuisance, but it could also be a symptom of an underlying medical condition.

Medical conditions that cause cold feet include Raynaud’s phenomenon and Raynaud’s disease. There may also diabetes or a condition known as Peripheral Vascular Disease.

Raynaud’s phenomenon in particular causes fingers and toes to grow colder, while also changing color as the blood supply lessons. This happens due to cold temperatures or stress. Toes might change from white colored to bluish to red as blood vessels close and reopen. Another form of the disorder, which has more severe symptoms, is Raynaud’s disease. This may be an indicator of a systemic disease, such as diabetes.

The #1 Best Remedy for Dry Cracked Heels

Winter skin tends to become dry and cracked, especially in the heel area. If you examine your heel you might find the skin has rough patches, especially on the sides. For some people, dry cracked heels are also painful. Calluses and heel fissures can develop. The deep cracks in the skin can then bleed, causing pain when walking or standing.

If you’re ready to put an end to dry cracked heels, moisturizing is the #1 best remedy. While other factors might also contribute to dry skin (such as certain skin conditions, medical conditions, standing too often, and wearing the wrong shoes), the most important thing to do is to use a moisturizing cream daily.

Kerasal One Step Exfoliating Moisturizer TherapyStep One: Use an ointment designed especially for dry cracked heels.

Try the Kerasal One Step Exfoliating Moisturizer Therapy. This cream is applied to clean dry feet. Ideally it should be used in the evening when your feet can rest. When using it, you’ll be helping to exfoliate and rehydrate the skin. Plus, your heels will be more balanced and softer with use.

Step Two: For best results, wear cotton socks after moisturizing.

Juzo Silver Sole Socks are ideal for diabetics, athletes, and those who spend hours on their feet. Socks that lock in moisture and eliminate odor will help your heels. The Juzo Silver Sole Ankle High Socks are especially designed for reducing the calluses and blistering associated with dry heels. These socks provide a mild compression in the calf area to increase circulation in your feet and ankles. They are also made to prevent bunching up and to minimize irritation on the skin.

Combining these two steps is a great way to moisturize dry cracked heels in the winter—and keep them healthy all year long.
