When caring for dry skin on feet it's important to establish a good routine that includes targeted cleansing as well as moisturising. Sweat and dirt can become trapped in the dead cells which can attract bacteria and odour and further cause dry feet. Here’s a step-by-step guide how to get rid of dry skin on feet and prevent it from forming:
- Step 1: Cleanse your dry feet
To treat dry feet thoroughly cleanse your feet with a moisturising body wash such as the NIVEA LOVE Sunshine Shower Gel and
- Step 2: Exfoliate your dry feet
After bathing or soaking your feet, use a foot file or pumice stone to slough off dead skin from your dry feet to reveal new softer layers of skin underneath. Soak the pumice stone in warm water before using it. After towelling your foot, massage the pumice stone over your skin in circular motions gently for two or three minutes and rinse afterwards. Once you're done exfoliating the cracked skin on feet it's best to use a highly moisturising lotion, the new softer skin should absorb moisturiser quicker and healthier than dry skin.

- Step 3: Moisturise your dry feet
Good foot care starts with a good night-time moisturising foot lotion which will help prevent dry skin on feet. For a super nourishing pre-bed massage, try the NIVEA Soft moisturising cream.
Apply a moisturiser to still damp feet which will lock in more of the cream’s hydrating benefits. The NIVEA Rich Nourishing Body Lotion is ideal for applying post-shower, as it can absorb quickly into the skin. With moisture that lasts all day long, you can look forward to fresh, smooth and healthy looking feet in no time. Continued use after the problem's ended helps prevent new dry skin on feet or cracked feet forming.
