When we were growing up my poor little brother had such dry feet he used to have to cover them in Vaseline and then wrap them in Saran Wrap and wear socks to bed every night. Squish, squish, squish – everywhere he went. 😉
I have permanently solved my dry heel problem by religiously using a pumice brush on my heels every time I shower. As soon as I’m out of the shower I use a little Gehwol Med Salve for Cracked Skin on them. I’m sure Vaseline would also work, especially once you had the cracks under control. But the Gehwol salve is great!
