In brief: Exfoliate,moisturize

Try slathering on a thick lotion designed for feet before bed and wearing socks over them to help absorb the moisture.
Putting lotion right after a shower will help seal in more moisture. You can exfoliate with a foot scrub, or very gently with a pumice stone available at most drug stores. Make sure you sterilize your pumice stone or foot buffer to avoid infections.

In brief: Vasaline

Coating your feet in vasaline or crisco before bed twice a week should soften them nicely, if not see your primary provider to further evaluate

In brief: Moisturizer

Try using an unscented cream moisturizer regularly after showering and at nighttime.
Also showering with a moisturizing, fragrance free body wash or soap should help with the dryness.
