... The deal with the dry skin is, because the foot is not able to exfoliate through showering and being exposed to air, the dead skin builds up over the time until you are finally able to get it wet and the dead skin starts to fall off again. It is hard to believe that the skin exfoliates that much over such a short period of time, but it does! When I took my first shower, I... (22 replies)
