Agree with the soak and scrap method, but we also dry our feet then rub a coat of raw honey on our feet then cover them with two layers of socks. Sit back grab a good book and let the honey work it's magic for about two hours.I would just soak your feet in water then take a butter knife and scrape the dead dried skin off the top/bottom every day... eventually it will become smoother... I had to do this on the top of my big toes or they turn white
Corn Huskers Lotion is great and getting harder and harder to find in my neck of the woods.My dad was a veterinarian. His practice for many years centered around large animals so his hands were in and out of water out in the elements. In the winter he had cracks so deep his hands would drip blood from them.
One of his clients brought him bottle of Corn Huskers Lotion and told him to use it first thing in the morning, last thing at night and at least once sometime during the day. Within 72 hours my dad's hands had stopped bleeding and the red, inflamed, cracked look had gone away. Within the week you would never have guessed that he was taking meds for the pain he was in the week before. His hands were almost completely healed.
After that he had a bottle of Corn Huskers in every exam room and sitting on the ledge over every sink at his clinic.
It is not greasy feeling (has no oil in it) and is a lot lighter than most lotions on the market today. I have a huge stash of it. I have really dry skin and winter is awful. I don't know what I would do without it.
ETA: I forgot to say I use it every evening after my shower ... and I use it EVERYWHERE. No more itchy dryness or cracking. I can't prove it but I think it has even kept me from developing those little crows feet that come with "wisdom" (read: age) so far. LOL
