Yes I do as I hate cracked heels or feet that are not looked after.

I use the special foot moisturiser that you can buy at chemists, and my podiatrist always says how nice my feet are - or rather how well looked after they are.

I think there is nothing more ugly than someone in open shoes with cracked heels....

Ooooh, yes!
Feet 'work hard', so it's good to give them a bit of TLC!
They'll thank you for it by making your movement easier!
No. I simply shower then, dry then and cut my nails when they are getting out of order.
It's a long way down!!!

I do try.

Oh yes, I do moisturise my feet every day with cream, after my shower.
Yes, I put moisturizing lotion on them. I have dry
heels, and to keep them soft.
Since having my hip done years ago I can't manage to look after my feet as I'd like to but my podiatrist who I see every 5 weeks does a great job of looking after them for me. She does cream and massage them when there and somehow I don't have problens with dry or cracked heels even though I go barefoot around the house.
I found my heels cracked more when I went without shoes. Keeping my feet covered has made a big difference.

I have very severe arthritis and nerve issues with my feet and ankles,and I find that massaging them is a huge help.Of course,to massage properly,I use gorgeous lotions made with delightful essential oils! Even when I soak my feet,I add wonderful essential oils and epsom salts to the water. I bought myself a really large WIDE bucket for soaking my feet.I can even stand comfortably in it if I wish to, while doing such things as the ironing!! It cost me under $2 at Bunnings!!! After a relaxing soak,the skin far more readily accepts the moisturising ingredients of whatever lotion I wish to massage into my feet. Mmmmmm....
I moisturise my feet and give them a good massage. In summer my heels tend to crack if I don't take care of my feet and I hate the discomfort of cracked heels.
When I think they're looking a bit shabby, I tend to them. ;-)

If the skin on my feet is feeling dry I will moisturise them. That is pretty much my policy over all of my body.
Only my heels as diabetics have to be careful about feet . . . we have to make sure our feet are well cared for . . . but we have to avoid the toes being too moist. Just another petty annoyance :(

Yes,I moisturise my feet daily.
Yes! Shea butter every day. Or coconut/ olive/ avocado, whatever I have blended, and is rich enough and to hand.
Absolutely! Dry skin can lead to more complicated foot problems such as painful heel fissures (cracks), bacterial infections, fungal infections and foot ulcers.
Apply moisturiser daily all over the feet except avoid applying in between the toes (as this is a common area for fungal infections to occur). There are so many brands of moisturisers out there so if you don't like one, try another!
