I find that with age I also have very dry and cracked skin on my feet. A friend of mine reckons you shouldn't go barefoot especially on bricks as she feels the skin gets torn and drys out. I found a neat foot file - Dr Scholls - at the chemist as well as Eulactol cream which certainly helps but it only works for as long as I can be bothered to do the work on my feet.

I also find have a pedicure helps as all the dry skin is then taken off and your feet are well creamed - if that is a luxury you can afford go for it.

I had the same problem. Someone suggested Ingrams Camphor Cream - marvellous stuff, it solved the problem within a week.
