If using in shower, use caution as the oils can make the shower slippery. As an alternative, you can soak your feet in a warm foot bath first which will soften the skin and then use this exfoliating foot scrub to buff away the dead skin. Follow with moisturizing foot lotion and a pair of cozy socks.
If your feet and heels are very dry and crack it will take some persistence on your behalf. Use scrub 3 times per week until all the dry and cracked skin is off. Then just maintain with a once per week exfoliating foot scrub.
