- In a word, exfoliate. Rub away calluses and thickened, cracked skin with an emery board, and then relax while soaking feet in Epsom salts to soften skin, and rub gently with a luffa or pumice stone.
- Exfoliating creams, similar to facial exfoliates, but stronger, also help peel away withered winter skin.
- Foot scrubs containing salt or sugar granules invigorate and increase circulation, especially if they include peppermint, rosemary or tea tree oil within a moisturizing Shea butter or organic foot oil.
- Always be sure to apply a moisturizer to protect the newly exposed skin. Remember to soften elbows and knees, too.
