    You can get those things that work by battery and get the dead skin off. You can use it with wet or dry skin. I just can't remember what it's called?

    I think they are about $50 from chemist warehouse.

    ETA: argh for some reason pictures aren't showing up on the app at the moment. Google Scholl foot file, it's called velvet smooth express pedi.

    I like the NS8 cream. I used eulactol for ages and had good results but ns8 is less greasy so you don't need the socks in bed.

    Mine were horrible and one was painful after spending all Xmas day on my feet.
    I was using the eulactol heel balm gold. It softened them but they were still gross.
    Aldi had those battery charged foot file things for $15 so i figured it was worth a try. They were bad but that didn't fix it.
    I went to my beauty salon and they done a 'pedi peel'.
    It was $50. They soak fabtic in a solution then put it on your feet, wrap them then wrap in plastic then cover with a towel for 30mins.
    After this they unwrap everything and then scra pe the product off and then file then back. Then they moisturise.

    My feet went from horrid looking deep cracks to looking like my bubbas feet! I'd definitely go back!

    8m note able to maintain with just a regular moisturiser/sorbolene rubbed on at night and with my el cheapo battery foot file thingy.

    Maybe this is just me, but I have found I get cracked hands and cracked feet if I don't drink enough water. I have tried a variety of creams and methods over the years and none have had much effect. Mind you, I still suffer from cracked hands and feet so I'm obviously not drinking enough water but I have observed that it makes a difference. (Just 'cause I look for natural ways to remedy things.)

    Thanks all

    I definitely don't drink enough water.

    I know I should probably go to a podiatrist as I also have 2 painful corns but I will try cheaper options first lol.
    Far too embarrassed to go to a beautician- seriously my feet are now revolting.

    I have a foot spa I never use, time to drag it out.

    I feel a bit queasy at the idea of pumises/files/shavers rubbing off dead skin..... I can't help but think it would hurt?

    There's a sale at amcal will grab some heel balm and maybe one of those scholl valve smooth things...

    If you have corns too a trip to the podiatrist would be worth it. You will struggle to remove them effectively with over the counter treatments. Any cream you apply will work much better when the callous has been removed too.
