Japanese baby foot peeling masks [link]
Sounds insane but it seriously exfoliates all the gross calluses better than any manual exfoliation. I do it once a year before sandals season.
I tried Baby Foot foot peel this week. I am horrified and strangely fascinated with all the peeling that is going on right now. The skin is literally coming off in sheets and I can't stop picking at it. My husband is totally grossed out and has asked me politely but firmly to not pick at the skin in his sight, but I can't stop. I think I'm going to get a few more packs of Baby foot so I can do this regularly.
edited to add: here is a link to the foot peel I used (I got mine on a Black Friday sale so it was cheaper but here is a current amazon link) [link]
NB DO not get the moisturizing mask also sold by Baby Foot - I put it on and thought "my feet are softer" but no peeling happened because....it was not a peel it was a hydrating foot mask
edit #2 I'm going to try the Tony Moly Foot peel as suggested next - so thanks for the tip!
This thing changed my life. I use it every summer and my feet feels amazing. No calluses. Be wary tho cause it will make you feet peel like crazy but I personally think that's the best part!

I purchased this product today on Amazon with my iPad. [link]
When I opened my device this afternoon, the order confirmation was still on the screen. I was horrified for a second, because I thought I’d accidentally purchased Enough.
Babyfoot! Stuff is great. Just make sure you soak your feet first, it's in the reviews on amazon, and it works wonders for me. You will have flaky feet for a week. But i'm usually crack free for 4-6 months.
You can also try the tony moly branded ones those work less, but they do a decent job.
Omg, speaking of foot scrubs, have you ever tried BABY FOOT It is the effin bomb!!! 13K reviews and over 4 starts. Shit is legit! It's totally worth the money. Throw it in your cart now so you don't forget next time you place an Amazon order (idk where else to get it)
This sounds worse than it is. A shaving razor. After your feet are wet from the shower, calloused skin sloughs right off with a razor. Gross cleaning the skin out of it, but I do this at my heel, big toe and around any other nail where callous start to thicken. In the years I've done this, i've maybe shaved too close to get it a bit pink a handful of times. I do this for the even the teeny tiny little snags on the heel because I'm like Princess and the Pea and can feel the snag on a sheet and then can't sleep.
The crazier option is called Baby Foot. Read the reviews, and see pics... it REMOVES EVERYTHING. Course, may not be what you want with barefoot running. So option 1 is a good one. I have tried this, and wow, yeah.... talk about birthing out baby feet in adult size. I really recommend it in winter, though, because during the process... you're going to want to hide some of that shame.
First of all, I think it's great that you're covering them in CeraVe and Vaseline every night and wearing socks to bed. I would recommend that you do this immediately after you've showered/bathed, in order to lock all moisture in.
Second, I recently did a Baby Foot peel for my feet and it worked wonders. I have many callouses due to years of soccer and nothing has worked for my feet like this has. They are now smooth and soft. That being said, I would definitely not recommend this if you have any bleeding or open cuts/sores. You can just google Baby Foot peel and the images are pretty accurate. Good luck!
The best advice I ever received (and it totally worked for me) was to stop wearing open heel shoes and to always wear socks. I have had excellent luck with both Bag Balm and O'Keefe's Healthy Feet before bed, again with socks.
If you really want to get into an extensive treatment phase, perhaps try this exfoliation product for feet from Amazon. It does amazing things but I would suggest doing it on a weekend, or other time when you can take it easy on your feet for a couple of days afterwards. Then do super intensive moisturization several times a day with either Bag Balm or Happy Feet and socks for a week or so.
You have to try a product called Baby Foot! Amazon link
I thought it was a gimmick until I tried it and it literally changed my feet. I used to have such horribly dry feet that they would crack and hurt. As soon as I would get a pedicure, my feet were white and scaly again. I hated the way they looked in sandals.
I used this acid peel and my feet look amazing! I wish I had taken before and after pictures. I found some tips online to make it work better. I soaked my feet for an hour before I put the little booties on. Put on the booties and wore those while watching tv for about 90 minutes. Rinsed off the gel and then every day after that I would soak my feet for about 30 minutes. On day 3-4 I started to see the peeling start. The skin that peeled off my heels was SO thick! No wonder lotions didn't work for me when it was trying to soak through so much dead skin.
I'll forever be a fan of this product! I have tried tons of foot related things to make my feet look better and this is the only thing that ever worked.
Yes, this is what I used, but it covered my whole foot. There are some that look like they cover the bottom only, and if you're gonna try it, I recommend that. Just search "foot peeling" on Amazon. [link]
Shower first! (Or soak your feet in hot water for a while.)
I always leave them on longer than the instructions say. If it says 60-90 minutes, I'll do a minimum of two hours.
Soak your feet each night for a bit in hot water. That'll speed the peeling process.
...Take your socks off over a trash can, NOT after flopping yourself tummy-down starfish-style on your bed. Trust me on this.
NOT ALL OF THEM ARE MADE EQUAL. From personal experience, Holika Holika's and TonyMoly's were really good. Skinfood's Sparkling Mint one was a LET-DOWN. So disappointing. I also tried like 2 different Japanese ones (I can't recall the brands) that were okay. So-so. Seems like this one is the gold standard, but I've never tried it, cause it's expensive af, so I don't know how it compares with cheaper ones. I have a hunch these could be a dupe for them, and they're less than half the price. I mean, I hope so, I bought 'em, so we'll see.
Buy some babyfoot
Holy shit but also like get some babyfoot ya nasty
I can help!
If you already have thick calluses, a scrub isn't going to do much. They will only help preventing calluses. To remove a callus, you have to do it physically (shaving/rasp) which can be dangerous, or chemically with a foot peel. There are a number of foot peels that you can buy where you soak your feet for like 20 minutes, then put on little booties filled with a mild acid peel for an hour, then after a few days the dead skin just starts flaking and peeling off. I've used the Tony Moly ones, but my calluses aren't bad. This is the OG Baby Foot at home foot peel but it's more expensive than others.
Once you remove the really thick stuff, it's easier to maintain.
Tree Hut makes good sugar and salt scrubs, but I prefer a salux cloth because it's more environmentally friendly than sugar scrubs. Also, a pumice stone is a good help.
Also, you can get AHA foot cream like AmLactin or CeraVe SA Cream to help slowly exfoliate and hydrate feet a the same time. A 20% urea cream would also work. These only work AFTER the big thick calluses are gone.
100% worth it. My personal favorite is Babyfoot—$25 on Amazon and so great.
All the fun of a sunburn without having to go outside
Nah, I’m talking more about a natural face mask thing. I’ll leave the link to the product!
Babyfeet for the win!!

If you're up for it, you could buy a pedi tub from amazon: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=pedicure+foot+soak&crid=273VSQLATCIG8&sprefix=pedicure+%2Caps%2C225&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_4_9
It's not something I want to do, but it's not difficult. I recommend these too: https://www.amazon.com/Baby-Foot-Exfoliant-Lavender-Scented/dp/B00461F4PA/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=2C00ZW3XPFUNX&dchild=1&keywords=baby+foot+exfoliant+foot+peel&qid=1602372237&sprefix=baby+fooot%2Caps%2C231&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyUktDNVdQSk42R0UwJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwOTg0MDk2MTBZMEEzQzc0VEJXOCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNzYwODE0MjdOUTNEN0tOWUNKRSZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=
Sure it would be a good bonding experience too.
Otherwise if you don't want to spend money, you only need to lather her legs with an emollient, draw a warm bath, can just gently exfoliate her skin with your hands even once it's softened, then apply lotion and trim her nails. I wear gloves too. It's not really necessary, but I feel better. Shouldn't take longer than an hour. I just want you to remember that if you take your mom out, she's probably not going to be as aware as you of the current conditions, and will touch handles and the chair arms and her face as normal people do. When I've taken my grandmother to appointments I brought spray sanitizer and sprayed her hands every time I saw her touch something. Spas are also very high traffic and very unsanitary for the pandemic. I'm an esthetician and most spas (and restaurants and like everywhere I've worked) is not sanitary though they're places with strict laws. All grooming jobs/some medical are impossible not to exchange breath. We all have to sacrifice.
Baby Foot followed by nightly Amlactin, followed by vaseline/socks like the other commenter said :)
Name: "Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel"
I tried to edit this 6:30 minute video down the best I could, the way you use it is to wear the bag for about an hour, let the mixture soak in, then wash off your foot.
In about 5 days your feet begin to peel off all the layers of dead skin and you get to enjoy peeling it off in the gross but satisfying way only you can enjoy. At the end you're left with totally fresh feet, no dry or dead skin left.
I also edited another gif that I think shows the process better but has less satisfying peel porn:

I found this stuff just not sure if it is the same?
Have you heard of baby foot? This stuff is unreal. Your skin sheds like a snake after a week. Look at the amazon customer photos: www.amazon.com/Baby-Foot-Exfoliation-lavender-scented/dp/B00461F4PA
If you want to do this and for it to be beneficial I recommend baby foot . It peels off skin and helps alleviate the callouses.
This is the result of the Baby Feet peel
Want to experience the same satisfaction of peeling large flakes of skin off your own body?
