With sandal season quickly approaching, I've been thinking a lot about foot care.  It seems like no matter what I try, I get really dry skin on my heels.  What do you all use to keep your feet feeling and looking smooth and silky?

I struggle with this too. I've just recently started using The Body Shop peppermint foot scrub and I love it!  It smells good and feels a little tingly to me too.  I'd love to hear what others are using too!

My routine for the last several years has worked terrifically, and it's pretty simple and not time-consuming.

Every weekend, I use a Ped-egg on the bottom of my feet.  Then I follow it with an aromatherapy scrub from Bath & Body Works (my current favorite is Vanilla Verbena).  I just do this once a week to avoid any temptation to over-exfoliate.  I love the Ped-egg - even DH uses it!

Every night, I put on Bath & Body Works "Shea It Isn't So" foot cream after I'm in bed.

That's it.  I do this year-round and I never get dry skin on my heels.  I'm more likely to skip the nightly cream when I'm wearing socks during the day, because my feet don't get nearly as dry, but I never skip the weekly scrubbing & exfoliation.

Thanks so much for your feedback, ladies!  I'll have to look into some of those products.  Where did you find the Ped-egg?  I'm not sure I've seen that around... Can you buy it in the stores?

I used to be able to get the Ped-egg at the drugstore, but now they only carry their store brand and it's not as good, so I get them online.  Last time I bought three of them because I was afraid they might go out of stock!  I find that one will last several months before I have to replace it.
