Between the cold temperatures and lack of humidity, it’s no secret that dry, cracked feet are an inevitable part of winter. And if pumice stones and creams have never seemed to cure your scaly feet for good, these special foot peeling masks may just be your answer.
Here’s how they work: The masks, which look like little booties, are placed on the foot and typically worn for up to an hour depending on the product’s instructions (no scrubbing or manual labor required). The jellylike substance inside the booties then works to moisturize and exfoliate the skin. At first, you won’t notice much change, but after five to seven days, the dead skin will start peeling away in droves.
