In brief: Urea cream
Over the counter creams cointainig urea or ammonium lac hydrate can help.
First soak feet until soft than apply lotion. You also use aquaphor as last step to help seal in water. If it persists you may see dermatologist for presciption products.

Pull up your socks! Apply cream to your feet every night. Then pull on a pair of socks. You'll be treating your feet while you sleep!

In brief: Moisturize
Try using urea or lachydrin (lactic acid) based lotions twice daily and then moisturize with vaseline and cover with cotton socks at bedtime.
It might take a while but this should help. If things don't improve you may want to have your feet checked by a dermatologist to rule out other causes.
