Help with Heels

OK, so I'm not really sure if its just me or the shoes I wear, but I'm having a major issue with my feet right now. Mostly the heels and the balls of my feet - you know, the parts that get the most action. They seem to ALWAYS be very, very... dry. Like desert dry. Like back in the Iraqi desert dry. Sometimes when I touch them at the end of they feel more like sandpaper than skin (gross, I know).

I recently started going over them with a pedi-egg apply and applying foot balm and some really thick socks. I try to get pedicures every 2 weeks, but I have the tools to do them myself if I can't find the time to make it to the spa. But they still seem to be super dry at the end of the day. I just (as in today) purchased Ahava Mineral Foot cream to use instead of the balm (because it obviously sucks) hoping it would yield better results.

But I was wondering, does anyone else have this problem? Can you recommend some tips or products that may help? I'm tempted to wrap my feet in Saran-wrap to keep some of the moisture in. I mean,  I know its pretty bad but it was a bit embarrasing when the girl that was doing my pedi this morning pointed out how dry the were. :(

Try to stop using the Ped Egg. That could actually be causing the issue- or at least not helping. I heard it is actually bad for your feet.     good luck!

I always soak my feet in a solution of Epson Salts and various bubble baths.  When I am through, I massage my feet with a combination of an oil (like lavender or Neutrogene Sesame Seed Oil) mixed with a good deep penetrating body lotion, like those sold by ULTA.  I also do this every morning. With heels, I use Dr Scholl's ball of foot pads, which you can get at any drugstore, like Walgreens or CVS.  I super glue them inside the shoes so they won't slip.  This procedure works out very well, and I guarantee you won't have foot pain!

Keep using the Pedi-egg when you can and try slapping on good ole Vaseline or Olive Oil before bed (with socks).  Make sure you're keeping yourself hydrated during the day, too!
