Soften the skin and nails with a warm shower (or soaking in the tub) for at least ten minutes. Use a nail brush to get rid of dirt and debris trapped under the nails.
Address dry, callused skin by using a pumice stone or foot file. Firmly scrub back and forth across the callused area to soften and smooth your soles. The quickest way to accomplish this? A professional pedicure. Salons have all the tools to make skin-sloughing quick and painless.
