Walking all day, climbing up and down stairs, and jumping around during workouts—your feet go through a lot. So if your feet feel calloused, it's probably time you show them a little TLC. An affordable, effective, and doctor-recommended solution to dry, cracked heels: An at-home foot peel.

Whether you’re going on daily walks or run at your local park everyday, our feet go through a lot. Joshua Zeichner, MD, explains, “The skin on your feet is subject to friction and trauma which can lead to barrier disruption, dryness, and inflammation.”

There are peels that will literally exfoliate and dissolve dead skin cells on your feet to reveal smooth skin underneath and there are others that infuse moisture to make feet softer. If you’re looking for the former, Dr. Zeichner says to look for ingredients like glycolic and lactic acid. "These help dissolve skin cells in the outer skin layer so that the outer, rough skin can shed,” he says. For those simply in need of a little extra hydration, Dr. Zeichner recommends moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, hyaluronic acid, and avocado oil.

Below, the peels and masks experts recommend.
