No matter how rough your feet, you don’t have to scrub with all of your might to get the job done. In fact, some skin experts prefer multiple stones for different purposes rather than scrubbing too hard.
It’s important to soften your skin before attempting to remove the dead cells. Otherwise, you can damage your skin. Scrubbing dry skin is not only painful, it often leads to more harm than many realize, including lesions and cuts.
After patting your feet dry, apply moisturizer and/or oil to maintain moisture. Some skin experts suggest applying moisturizer a couple of days consecutively to lock in smoothness, and then once a week to maintain their softness.
