You might only focus on foot care when the time comes to bust out the slides and lace-up sandals — after all, the colder months are spent in boots and no one can see if your soles are sporting a callus...or two...or three. Good news: If you want to give your feet some TLC, you don't have to go to the salon for an intensive pedicure — or even wait until the temps get warmer.

There are plenty of foot products you can use at home that are surprisingly effective. For a sure-fire glow-up, though, Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair (Buy It $9, is one of the best options for treating dry, hardened skin.

Sure, Baby Foot (and its many dupes) is one of the most popular options for a near-instant foot transformation and the Amope Pedi Perfect is up there too. But if you're hunting for more of a maintenance product that won't cause you to shed skin like a snake, you can pick up a cheaper feet-saver at the drugstore or on Amazon.

Kerasal Foot Repair contains two key ingredients for loosening up dry skin: salicylic acid and urea. Although salicylic acid is commonly known for its acne-fighting power, the exfoliating all-star is found in many foot peels as well. And urea is also an exfoliant and has keratolytic effects, which means it can help break down calluses, according to research.

What's more, the popular foot treatment is a multitasker. While it exfoliates your skin, the Kerasal foot cream also prevents future moisture loss. How? Because it has white petrolatum, the ingredient in Vaseline, which can act as a sealant to lock in moisture and soften dry skin. Pro tip: After applying Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair, immediately cover your feet in plastic wrap and put on socks to strengthen the dead skin–removing effects.

The Kerasal foot-smoothing product currently has over 2,500 five-star reviews on Amazon, with customers reporting that it's nothing short of miraculous. "Took away my dry feet after one use. After two uses, my feet are completely moisturized and you can't even tell they were dry and cracked to begin with — miracle product," wrote one shopper.

"I am not kidding people, this stuff is magical unicorn tears!" raved another customer. "I am 41 years old and my right heel was disgusting with cracked skin and dryness (I live in AZ and wear flip-flops a lot). I have tried for YEARS to moisturize, use the sander thing, you name it...and nothing worked. I finally came across this product and after ONE USE, I noticed a difference," they detailed.

Long story short, Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair can simultaneously exfoliate your skin and lock in moisture. If you're looking for a single product to keep your feet on point, it's a safe bet.
