Really scrub all those rough areas and between toes.
Rinse and dry.
Apply a thick moisturizing cream mixed with a few drops of either

Calluses can be a major problem but there is a soak that you can do that helps loosen that dead skin. It is simply 1/4 cup listerine, 1/4 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup water. It does not make much so you might have to use the smallest container the foot fits in.
I had surgery and it left ugly dead skin on my foot. So I doubled the amount and it was a bit too strong but it sure peeled off the dead skin after soaking for 15 minutes or so. A good rough towel will help roll the dead skin off.
Then make sure you moisturize. If the callus is really thick you may need to use a pumice stone on it. Please be careful and do not go too deep and hit the soft skin.
