It’s important to note that there is a wide range of causes for dry feet. Sometimes, lifestyle habits are relevant, but other times what’s going on inside the body is the primary cause. A few examples of the latter, according to Brooklyn-based podiatrist Greg E Cohen, DPM, include dehydration, a lack of sweat gland production, diabetes, and aging.

There are lifestyle factors that can lead to dry feet, regardless of what’s going on internally, too. Here, a few to note: Extra hot showers, low humidity, soap that contains harsh cleansing agents, and walking barefoot.
