Unfortunately, most people suffer from dry, itchy feet, and the skin on their feet is red, rough, or flaky. These are all common symptoms of dry feet. Here is an explanation for this: the skin on our feet has no oil glands, so it relies on hundreds of thousands of sweat glands to keep our feet moisturized.
Sometimes these sweat glands are not enough to keep feet properly moisturized. According to Foot Vitals, common causes of dry feet are non-moisturizing soaps, cold weather, low humidity, sun exposure, hot showers, and aging. The truth is that dry feet can be uncomfortable and cause excessive itching or burning. Here are some home remedies that will help you solve this problem.
