I have dermatitis ....a condition which makes my feet dry, crack and peel.

I second pumice,moisturiser,and vaseline with socks.
Also try a pedicure shaver....eg. pedegg, to remove dry areas.

A professional pedicure including parafin wax treatment, every 3 months really helps.

I definitely agree with the Vaseline - I use it as often as I can, usually putting some warm cotton socks on after. It really helps!

Vaseline for me too. I also put baby oil on right after I get out of the shower then some vaseline. I know it's a funny combination but works for me.

A pumice stone is something you can get at most a beauty supply stores. It looks just like a flat stone, pretty much, and you can use it to buff the heels and balls of your feet, etc. Otherwise, an alternative would be a foot file, which looks like a nail file, but bigger and made for your feet specifically. These can usually be found in the same place, in my experience. I have tried both, and they both seem to work pretty equally for me. I guess it's just a matter of preference. :)

I definitely have to try vaseline as well! I have tons of it, because I am always putting it on my lips, but I never thought about putting it on my feet!

I swear by Creamy Vasoline. It goes on really smooth and lasts all day! It is kind of greasy but then again, it's vasoline!! My mom has always used it and passed it down to me, so I've just put it on right out of the shower since I was younger. I've never had a problem with dry, cracked heels so far! Highly recommend it...it's worth a shot for you at least! Oh and another plus to it...it's very inexpensive! Under $2 a tube!! Can't beat that!!

With every day I learn a little more about myself and I'm starting to really love myself for who I am and for whom I'm becoming. I wish you each all the luck in the world on your goals!!

Hey! Welcome to the team!

I can honestly say that I feel your pain! After years of dance and basketball, my feet had become really dry, and I even had some really bad, thick, dry skin in some spots (esp. on my heals). Ick!

What has helped me, is this: to start with, I used foot scrub, and a pumice stone *everyday* in the shower on my feet. I think it really helped to do it everyday. After that, I bought special foot lotion (which isn't anymore expensive than regular lotion, I don't think, but has more moisture in it I guess) and used that everyday. There is also foot powder that you can put on over the lotion to lock the moisture in, but I didn't use that as often because it got kind of messy. That took a little while to really make my feet feel as good as they used to, but if you have the discipline to do that several times a week, it really pays off!!

Also, I find that getting pedicures a couple of times a year also really helps, because they take the time to really make your feet soft. No matter how dry my feet are when I go in, they feel awesome for at least a week after I get a pedicure! :)

Hope this was the sort of info you were looking for! :) Good luck!

Aly
