Bubble of dry skin: Several things could cause dry skin with blistering on your feet including dyshidrotic eczema, fungal infections, autoimmune diseases, and friction blisters. If it doesn't resolve on its own, i would recommend evaluation by a dermatologist.

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.

Dry peeling skin: There are a number of causes of dry peeling skin. You can use a cream like lachydrin (lactic acid) twice daily to improve the symptoms. I think 5% is otc while 12% is prescription. Fungal infection is one of the causes of scaling so if it is not resolved see your doctor.
