    I can't stand getting in bed at night cause they're catching on the sheets. They've never been this bad before. I used to go barefoot year round and had smooth feet but now can't do it. The rocks outside got harder and my feet get cold in the winter! I think its all this shoe wearing that's made them so rough! What do you do for yours? I told dh last night as I sat there with an emery board trying to get them to the point that I could cover up that I thought I was going to get one of those ped eggs today...he said there was some new thing out (can't remember what its called now though) that I should try instead.

    I use a pumas stone in the bathtub and then Put a heavy duty cream, lots on the market - I buy cheap, put the cream on my feet put on socks and go to bed. It takes a few treatments but then I just do it every once in a while as needed.:)

    Soak your feet with some warm water till they get nice and wrinkly, then massage in "Shea it isn't so" from Bath & Body Works. They have a whole line of products for your feet. It is the best I have ever used. They have a brush/pumice thing that works great. I take tub baths and use the pumice and brush with their scrub cream and it takes that gunk and old skin off. Then put the "Shea it isn't so" on with socks and go to bed. In just a few days of that your feet will be so much better.

    Try the ped egg, it realy works well, but you have to use it when your feet are dry, not wet!

    BBW's Heel of Approval is great for rough dry heels.

    One of the best things for your skin is olive oil. It is one of the ones that your skin can accually absorb. You may be able to find it in a solid form, and that can be your answer. If not, warm up a bit in the microwave, and you can give yourself a hot oil manicure while watching tv. Your cuticles and nails will love you all winter long!

    I use an exfoliate when I shower then slather on BBW body butter then put on socks. Makes a huge difference.

    I suffer from ruff feet too. I can't seem to break the habbit of walking around bare foot! What I do to keep my feet half way decent:

    Every day during shower I use a fine foot buffer thingie and then when toweling off I rub the towel extra ruffly on my feet.

    Once a week (or so) I soak my feet in warm water. I use very fine sand paper to smooth them (much cheaper than all the feet buffers and just as effective).

    At night I lather Utter Balm on my feet and cover w/white socks so that it has all nite to do it's trick :)

    When I first started this regiment, I did it daily. After your feet get to where you can live w/them again once a week/every other week works. During the summer I have to up the routine to keep them ok

    I don't go bare foot anymote, but will still get a rough patch on my feet. BBW works for me. I can't think of the name of it but it is in the small flat container.

    I heard that if you wash your feet at night with cider vinager, and soak once a week for 20 minutes this will help ruff feet...I am told that the acid in cider vinager is what makes this work...

    I have the ped-egg and I love it. I have terrible feet. I use the ped-egg then moisturize my feet and they feel so much better. Make sure you follow the directions or you could make things worse. I have caught my DS sneaking into my room to use it. Guess I need to get him one too!

    I have been using the PedEgg for a couple yrs. now. They really work on heels & I have an old surgery scar that tends to callus. I also put lotion on my feet every morning before putting socks on.

    Those ped eggs really work. I have one and it really takes the hard crusty skin off of the heels and the rest of the feet. Otherwise, I have deep cracks that bleed. Wouldn't be without it!

    I use a pumice block on my feet in the shower. When I get dried off, I use regular Vaseline and cover my feet with socks. It works great!

    I used to use the pumice stone and the soaking in the tub. It helped some. What helped me most was after the shower rubbing, working it in, Burt's Bees coconut Foot Creme with Vitmain E and then putting cotton socks over them. Sleep with the socks on. Burt's Bees has another Foot Creme too with peppermint but that one seems to be no good.
