The Butter: Le Mini Macaron "Butter Me Up!" Shea Foot Butter, £9.59

Best For: Intense Moisturisation 

Enriched with shea butter, this intensely creamy formula aims to repair extremely dry and cracked feet. The sumptuous, thick formulation nourishes skin to reveal smooth, softer feet in just a matter of uses. Simply apply a generous amount before bed and cover your feet with a pair of socks to the product to soak in overnight. If seriously smooth results aren't enough of a reason to invest, the subtly sweet scent is also a real treat.

The Mask: Skimono Beauty Foot Mask for Total Conditioning, £5

Best For: Damaged, Dry & Flaky Skin

You only need 30 minutes to let this foot mask work its magic. This naturally derived, sock-like sheet mask is deeply saturated with skin-enriching ingredients, designed to smooth and rebuild cracks with moisturising ingredients like shea butter and olive oil. Tea tree extract also plays a part, working with chamomile to deliver antibacterial benefits and keep feet looking, feeling and smelling fresh. Once the mask is on, your feet will feel an instant cooling sensation, as it works to replenish dryness and aid soreness. Made from something called a ‘biosynthetic’ material, it also allows skin to breathe while the ingredients get to work.

The Exfoliator: Footner Exfoliating Socks, £8.50

Best For: Exfoliation

To remove hardened dry skin from feet, these revolutionary socks promise to transform their appearance in less than an hour by using an effective exfoliating solution. Perfect for those with sensitive skin (there’s zero scrubbing required) or those looking for a quick and easy way to exfoliate dead skin cells, simply slip the socks onto your feet and use the adhesive strap to secure them in place. You can then slip your own socks over the top for a more comfortable fit and to give you freedom to move around while the socks exfoliate.

The Peel: Holika Holika Baby Silky Foot One Shot Peeling, £10.95

Best For: Softening & Hydration

Full of exfoliating fruit extracts, this peeling mask will gently shed dead skin cells to leave feet feeling refined and silky soft. Simply tip the potent formula into the socks (both of which are provided in the pack) and wear them for around an hour and a half. Then, remove and rinse to reveal silky feet and heels at the end.

The Sock: Kitsch Moisturising Spa Sock, £11.50

Best for: Sustainability

These gel socks are a real selfcare treat. Great for hydrating and softening cracked heels, replenishing hard skin and locking in long-lasting moisture, just pop on your favourite body butter or body cream, apply the gel socks and leave them on overnight for a truly indulgent experience. The gel lining locks in moisture and insulates feet, while the open-toe design means you can even paint your nails while the socks work on your heels and soles. A great as a reusable option.

The Tool: Nails Inc, Tootsie Tamer, £10

Best For: Filing Away Dead Skin

For a slightly more intense smoothing treatment, use this tool for real-time results. The Tootsie Tamer easily files away rough skin on the soles of your feet thanks to an ergonomic design. Use a foot soak first and follow up with the tool to buff away dead skin, using forward and backward movements, applying more pressure to thicker, harder skin. Finish with a foot wash and watch dead, flaky skin melt away.
