Crepe paper toes and cracked heels aren’t just nasty to look at—they’re your skin’s cry for help. If this is a problem, it’s time to take action. Here’s how to slough off those dead skin cells and reintroduce moisture to your feet. They’ll be restored with healthy-looking skin in no time.

Things You'll Need

Fill a small tub with enough warm water to cover your feet, and set it where you can sit comfortably near the faucet in the bathtub. Place a large towel on the floor nearby.

Slip your feet into the water and let them soak for 10 to 15 minutes to soften.

Take one foot and work a pumice stone on the bottom of it. Apply light pressure to the stone and move it in a circular motion to remove any dry, dead skin. Rinse your foot and the stone under the faucet, then set your foot on the towel to dry. Repeat with the opposite foot.

Wrap the towel over your feet and pat them dry.

Apply a thick layer moisturizer or coconut oil over all surfaces of your feet before bed each night. Wear a pair of moisturizing socks to hold the hydration in while you sleep.

Massage in a light layer of coconut oil each morning to soften the skin. Reapply throughout the day as needed.
