  • slather in vaseline at bedtime and put on a pair of white socks. After the cracks are healed try the "pediegg" thing you see advertised on t.v. you can get it at bed bath and beyond. It works great! But you can't use it if your heels are cracked. Good Luck.

  • I use this stuff from Beauti Control called Soul Appeal....Ohhh my goodness it has healed my feel 100% What ever you use put it on your feet and wrap them in suran wrap and put warm socks on....the heat will help it penatrate deeper.

  • I used the Beauti Control stuff yesterday and it was amazing! PennyMom is sooooo right! Soak your feet in warm water with epson salts, use a pummis (spelling?) stone on your heels and then rub the Soul Appeal on but don't rub it in all the way. Wrap in seran wrap or put your feet in plastic bags and cover with socks. Leave those on for as long as you like and your feet should be nice and soft after. My mom has the PedEgg thing and I have to admit as gross as it looks it works really well. Good luck with the pretty feet!

  • I found this on http://kitchen.robbiehaf.com/HomeRemedies.html#19
    for dry skin..
    Combine 1 cup oatmeal, 1 cup warm water, 1 Tbls. vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup baking soda in a blender or food processor until you have a smooth paste. Pour this paste under the running water while drawing the bath. Very soothing to dry, itchy skin.

  • I know of a lotion that is very good for cracked hands and feet. Also eczema and dry skin in general. For more information PM me and I can give you all the information on how to get it.
