If you suffer from dry heels — which is common among runners and those who work on their feet for hours — it might be time to give an exfoliating mitt a try. Using one a few times per week may help you get rid of dead skin buildup. Its textured surface loosens dead skin on your body and sloughs it away. With many options on the market, we rounded up some of the best exfoliating mitts to narrow down your search. Each pick on our list can be easily hung to dry and thrown in the wash when it needs a thorough cleaning.
