Heal Dry, Scaly Feet
Extremely dry and scaly feet can be uncomfortable and even painful if your skin cracks. Treat dry and scaly feet by applying a topical moisturizing cream in the morning and at night. Avoid taking long hot baths and showers which can dry out your skin even more. Also, be sure to hydrate and eat well. Dehydration and poor nutrition can worsen dry skin and can lead to cracks.*
To accelerate the absorption of moisture into your skin, lather your feet in cream and then wrap them in Saran wrap and socks. If these efforts do not improve your dry and scaly skin, seek out a podiatrist who can help you rule out psoriasis and other skin conditions.
