    Cashew oil can be used to help make your skin softer, as well you rid of fungal infections. Just massage some on the dry areas for a few days and wait for the magic to happen.Plain petroleum jelly can work miracles on dry, rough feet. Put some socks on, go to bed and in the morning you will find the your heels are very soft.

    Rubbing pumic stone too is helpful in clearing the dead dull skin.

    Wipe your feet and massage foot cream on them. You can even apply petroleum jelly or your daily body lotion on your feet, but the best is KRACK cream

    Thanks and Regards,
