If your feet have been feeling dry lately, a brush with firm bristles that can be used to exfoliate dry or wet skin is likely to help soften them up. A good bristle brush for shedding away dead skin should be lightweight, durable and easy to handle.

We included two picks that can be used on all areas of the body as well as one that’s specifically designed for the bottoms of your feet.
