Try moisturizing: First. If it does not improv visit the dermatologist, there are some dermatitis that occur in these locations like eczema, possibly psoriasis etc, so it might be more involved than then dry skin if simple moisturizing does not work.

Hydrate skin: I usually suggest a cream such as eucerin be applied to wet skin 2 to 3 times a day. I also suggest urea creams for more difficult cases.

Smooth feet: After you get your feet wet (shower bath or swimming). Take the stone and rub back and forth over the hardened areas. You should see some skin flaking off. You can apply lotion to your feet afterwards. Avoid going barefoot in common areas and check your feet daily and you'll be well on your way to healthy smooth beautiful feet.
