Feet can be a beautiful part of the body. Often, though, people neglect their feet. The skin becomes dry, coarse or cracked. This is far from the ideal of smooth, silky feet. Fortunately, making the skin on your feet smooth is a simple and straightforward process. You can do it overnight and the cost for the materials is very low. In fact, you probably already have everything you need.

Things You'll Need

Wash your feet with soap and water and dry them thoroughly with a towel.

Spread petroleum jelly all over your feet. Work it into your soles, around your toenails, into the folds of your knuckles and into any dry areas. Use plenty of petroleum jelly.

Put on a pair of clean, thick, cotton socks. This is a good time to pamper yourself by breaking in a new pair of socks.

Go to bed and sleep for the night. In the morning, the skin of your feet will be much softer.
