  • Use a foot/heel scraper on them when you take a shower. Moisturize before you put on your socks in the morning and at bedtime. Vaseline (only need a little) is what I use, but any good moisturizer will do if applied faithfully.

  • Never ever use's horrible...anything with mineral oil is not god. I would buy some ray shea can get it cheap on ebay. This stuff is amazing! It's good for everything from the hair down. Put some on your toesies especially at night and then put socks on.

  • I get a pedicure about once a month. In between times, I also have a foot file in the shower and use it every time I'm in there. After showering, put lots of moisturizer on them, then if you are able to, put on heavy socks.

  • Rub Vaseline on your feet at night and sleep with your socks on.

  • I use a PedEgg (as seen on TV) if they get bad, then a nice butter balm or heavy foot cream (like Heel of Approval from Bath & Body), then a pair of socks to bed.

    For maintenance, a foot file in the shower. Then put lotion on your feet before you put on your socks.

    I get a pedicure regularly through out the summer, but in the winter, I can go longer with some maintenance on my own. I cut my own nails in the winter, and touch up my polish. Once it gets pretty bad (the nail polish), I'll go in for a pedicure. I save the real pretty toes for sandal weather!
