More intense creams and ointments for severely dry skin (such as cracked heels) may feel greasier due to their higher beeswax, or essential oil content, but are still easy to spread and shouldn’t feel sticky.
How dry is your skin? If your skin isn’t very dry, all you need is a good everyday body lotion or cream (see our Body Lotion section for the top picks).

The market has many natiral remedy products and antifungal salves.
