I have this problem year round.

I use American Fare Moisturizing Dry Skin Cream. I think any thicker moisturizing cream would work. After applying it to my feet, I put a clean pair of white cotton socks on.

This is the same theory as putting hand cream on your hands and then wearing a pair of white cotton gloves.

As a longtime sufferer of dry, cracked heels... there is no magical cure or solution, other than good old-fashioned maintenance of ones feet.

Maintenance starts with a scheduled filing of your feet (I recommend twice weekly), followed by an application of quality foot cream.

Foot cream needs to be applied daily (I recommend prior to bed and before starting your day), and proper footwear is essential.

Yes... a long time ago I remember talking with someone about this very issue, and I recall them mentioning Bag Balm!

Thank you for mentioning it! Though I have never put it to the test, your post is a pleasant reminder for me to give it a try.

See that others that I know has this problem as well. I have it most of the time. Since as I can remember. So used to it it doesn't bother me that much any more. Until they become raw from peeling so much and it hard to walk on the feet.
I have used creme when they are really bad.
In the winter I put on the creme and sleep in fuzzy socks.
as I've got older when I go outside I wear shoes now. LOL

I am now using a foot peel that seems to help.

Just good to know I'm not alone with this problem. LOL

You are definitely not alone, barbar... my mom suffers from it, too, as does my oldest sister. I find not letting them go is the key to success, because when you neglect the problem, it takes FOREVER to get your feet back in order again, and it's so painful.

UDDERCREAM all the way, my feet are so soft and not sore anymore. It is a frugal buy as well.
