I've been barefooting for around 6 months now (with a short broken glass induced break in the middle). I have been using an exfoliating shower gel to clean my feet to get as much of the grime out as possible which works okay. I recently started using a pair of exfoliating gloves which seemed to do the best job of getting my feet back to a healthy colour again. However I realised yesterday that after giving my feet a good scrub that they were feeling more tender after the cleaning than they were after the excercise. I had to cut my mileage right back a little while ago as I was suffering from persistant blisters (It's quite possible that this coincided with starting to use the gloves). It looks like the gloves are a little too harsh but I don't really want to permanently look like i've just come back for a run! What does everyone else do cleaning wise?
