    Another easy remedy that has proven effective for me and is quite simple. Pumice stone, Vaseline, and any moisturizer you have on hand. I have a tendency for dry skin so I prefer a nice oil based moisturizer. After the shower or bath leave feet moist, liberally apply moisturizer followed by Vaseline to seal in the moisture. I like to do this at night or you can do it in the day time if you prefer. I don’t particularly like socks on my feet but even for an hour or two I would wear a pair to keep the feet warm. You can scrub it with a pumice stone in your next bath/shower. You’ll notice a distinct difference after a few tries. Then just keep moisturizing and scrubbing as you need. You’ll be pleased.

    This is a great homemade foot scrub I am really going to try it. I have been using this Feet Up Advanced Cracked Heel Repair Foot Cream from Oriflame and it is really good. I have been applying from past one month now and my feet have become very soft and smooth with no visible cracks at all. I think you should try it, it’s amazing.
