How can I keep the skin on my feet healthy?

Apply a moisturizing lotion to your feet once or twice a day to help keep your skin healthy and moist. Choose thick lotions over thin, “watery” lotions, and don’t put lotion between your toes, since the skin between toes tends to stay moist naturally. (Adding lotion there would overmoisturize that area and cause problems.)
