/ olive oil on you feet
vaseline on the hot spots before you start also helps.
Main thing is be careful about grit.. I just do my heal and toes..
Shea butter, cocoa butter, almond oil etc will all do the job. I prefer them immensely to chemical filled moisturisers.
If you want it I have my own recipe for a moisturiser/balm that can be customised to your preference.
Anyone who suggests Talc for preventing blisters is an idiot, by the way.
I can't see why rubbing olive oil on your feet should cause problems, whether you've blisters or not.. Is there a medical reason why it should?
