  • Lol, if I'm peeling after the soreness goes away, I use an exfoliating wash... if that doesn't do, I use "pretty feet." It's a foot exfoliant, and works on your skin like if you rub elmers glue between your hands.

  • Aloe always does the trick for us. Takes out the sting and softens the peeling skin.
