The Foot Texturizing Cream is a leave-on exfoliating cream. When applied, it penetrates into your skin and continues working between showers/baths. During your shower/bath, the dead skin around your feet can be gently exfoliated. The formula combines several acids (natural or naturally derived) with penetrating agents. This cream can be rubbed into your feet twice per week. This cream is most effective after a shower or bath. Then within a week or so, you can scrape off the old thick skin and apply a good moisturizer.
