If your cracked and callused heels are in need of a major overhaul, try these booties. Inside the plastic socks are 17 types of natural extracts, including fruit acids and glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids that work to peel off the outer layer of dead skin to reveal the baby-soft skin underneath. Simply wear the booties for an hour, then wait three-to-seven days for the peeling process to begin.
