  • You should get a really good professional pedicure first off
    Then go to Walmart, or wherever you shop and get a good, durable foot file. Whenever you are in the shower, file your feet for a few seconds. A few times a week, slather on Vaseline and wear socks to bed. I guarantee it'll work :)

  • Go and get pedi regularly, or go and by a ped egg for like Walgreen's o somewhere, you have to use it on dry skin. Please read the directions. And i Use coco butter and it works really well.

  • I have dry feet to and I when I decided to do something about it I just put lotion on my feet then put a bag over then, put socks over the bag to keep the bag on. That works for me. I need to do that soon with summer coming I will want to wear sandles.

  • I had the same problem and some people said to use vaseline and then put the socks on and to sleep in it and it really does work.

  • I use a foot file in the shower, you can get them anywhere pretty much.

  • I have this issue, too. HATE IT!!!! It is a daily battle. I have foot files, callous removers (blade kind), pumice stones, all that! And, it is a daily battle! I've gone to bed with creams, vaseline, emolients, you name it. Only to face the same issue day after day. I can't afford to get pedicures once a week. And, doing it myself just doesn't seem to work the same. My SO has amazingly soft feet without doing a thing. I tell him it is so not fair! LOL. I would LOVE to know the secret to nice soft heels& keeping them!
