Foot masks might sound indulgent, and they certainly aren't something you'd want to use everyday, but sometimes our feet could use some extra pampering. With the best foot peeling masks at your disposal, you can make sure your feet stay soft no matter what time of year it happens to be.
Foot peeling masks are an unusual but super effective way to get rid of dead skin on your feet. Newbies may find them kind of weird to use at first because you literally end up shedding layers of rough, callused, and dead skin from your feet like a reptile after applying the peel — but that's also part of what makes using a foot peeling mask such an unforgettable experience.
These masks are applied to your foot like a sock, and they're each meant to be used once. Place them freshly-cleansed feet, sit back, and relax for the directed amount of time (usually around an hour). When you take off the mask, you won't see much change. But after five to seven days, all those calluses and dead skin will peel off.
These five highly-rated foot peeling masks make it easy to give your feet a little extra TLC.
1. An Ultra-Hydrating Peel That's Formulated With Argan Oil
TONYMOLY Shiny Foot Super Peeling Liquid (0.85 Fl Oz)
For a foot peel that won't just exfoliate skin but will also deliver deep, penetrating moisture, you'll want to check out this option from TONYMOLY. Made with argan oil (which absorbs easily and helps hydrate and soften skin) plus refreshing peppermint and soothing lavender, this foot peel can remove dry patches and calluses without causing any pain and leaves feet feeling pampered. "The peeling started on day 3," wrote one reviewer. "By day 8, all the skin had peeled off the bottom of my feet."
2. A Foot Peel That Has Over 6,000 Reviews On Amazon
Baby Foot Lavender
With over 6,000 reviews on Amazon, people can't get enough of this ultra-luxurious, lavender peel. This super-strong peeling mask exfoliates and helps relieve dry and cracked areas with lactic and glycolic acids, which are responsible for the peeling, as well as castor oil and loads of botanic extracts that nourish the skin.
4. A Mask That Fits Up To Women's Size 11 Feet
Soft Touch Foot Peel Mask, $18 (2 Pairs), Amazon
While the booties in most foot peel packages are designed to be one-size-fits-all, if you're over a size 10, you may be hesitant to try one out because you're worried it won't fit properly. But with this foot peel mask from Soft Touch, which fits up to a size 11, you don't have to worry. It comes with two pairs per box, so you're getting a great value, and delivers the same exfoliating treatment other masks do, but with more room for different-sized feet.

Is the skin on your heels especially rough and cracked? If so, this peeling foot mask could be the secret weapon you've been waiting for.
