When out of the shower, I drop a dollop of foot cream or skin lotion on the tops of my feet and use the heel on one foot to spread the cream around the other foot. Rub your feet together, and again, you have not had to bend over. I have thrown my back out before by not using this method!

I have the WORST feet! Does anyone have suggestions on keeping then callous free, soft and smooth? I sure would appreciate it. I have decided I don't want to wear polish. I am looking for a totally natural look.
All my childhood I went barefoot wherever possible & I had the tough callouses to prove it. Even the big green stickers did not stick in my feet. I could walk on the blacktop in summer & never feel the heat. My feet had deep cracks all the dirt imbedded in them & they split & were so sore it hurt to walk. I would soak my feet in warm soapy water, scrub clean as I could & then work with a disposable razor. Sometimes I would cut too much & they would hurt even more. *Never use liquid bleach, it 'burns' the skin, turns yellow, peels off & make them drier. I finally found the secret- REALLY- I went to work & wore closed in shoes all day. I still had to soften my feet but used only the emery tyoe foot file while still damp after the shower & later when completely dry for a final smoothing. These best lotion I found was by Kamasutra honey almond massage cream, in a jar. It works overnight! Also going barefoot really dries then out badly. I now only need to do my feet with a foot file once a month & don't even use ltion often. ALSO the PedEgg works great, but be careful not to over do & the file car 'burn' you if you overdo it. ENJOY!
What can I use to clean my toenails? They are dark/dull around the cuticle area. How can I make them look white and pretty again. I was once told to soak them in Clorox for about 20 minutes a day. Can anyone confirm this? I don't think it is fungus because I do not get pedicures or wear toe nail polish.
I have very thick skinned feet (callused) and I have tried pumice stones, foot scrubs, lotions, you name it, I have tried it but I can't get soft feet. My feet are also very dry and scaly. Does anyone know what athlete's foot is and does this sound like it and if so what do I use to get rid of it?
I use acne astringent such as stridex and rub feet down at night and then apply Eucerin and then socks this works wonders the "syslic acid" in the astringent helps remove dead skin
My friend told me she keeps her feet soft and callous free by rubbing them lightly with a kitchen sponge before she gets out of the shower. She advised a cheap kitchen sponge can do the same as a foot file or pumice stone. Would you agree?
I've never heard of using a sponge, but I know once my feet are callous free I can keep them that way by slathering them with lotion and then wearing socks to bed.
