Wrap your feet in a towel to dry them and then wait 5 to 10 mins to dry completely. Remove any dead skin with a foot file. Rinse the flakes of skin off with warm water. Slather your feet with a thick moisturizer and put on a pair of heavy cotton socks. Wear the socks overnight to help the moisturizer soak in.
