“Dry skin may not be the most frequently mentioned problem when it comes to feet, but it’s where the most common foot problems start or originate from,” says Dr Kuhlmann. She explains, “The skin needs a certain amount of moisture to remain supple and to withstand pressure and other external influences. That is why many foot problems such as callus, cracked heels, and corns arise – when skin loses its natural moisture and natural barrier function.”
