One thing you can’t dare to miss in your feet care is weekly exfoliation. A weekly exfoliation in monsoon is a must. You can use body scrubs to exfoliate your feet, body scrubs work really well in getting rid of accumulated dead skin on the surface of your heels.
Another great way to scrub your feet is to use a pumice stone. The skin around the heels can turn out to be very hard so regular exfoliating will help to soften the hard skin, hence, do try this out once a week and even if you do it daily it won’t do any harm.

Wear the socks for about 15 minutes and after that massage your feet gently.
