This process starts with soaking your feet in warm water and using a loofah to remove excess dead skin. Next, apply coconut oil to all dry and cracked areas of your feet. Wear a clean pair of cotton socks. This should ideally be completed before bedtime, and you should wear the socks overnight. In the morning, wash your feet. Repeat for several nights in a row until you notice a difference.

 Epsom Salt

This process involves soaking your feet in a tub of warm water with one-half of a cup of Epsom Salts added. You should keep your feet soaking for 10 minutes. After they have soaked, rub your feet with a pumice stone to remove excess dead skin. Soak again for 10 minutes, then remove from water and dry thoroughly. Apply moisturizer. This process should be repeated for three days.


Soaking your feet in vinegar mixed with warm water can help with the dry, cracked issue and can also help with tired feet. Add one-half to one cup of vinegar to two cups of warm water and soak feet for roughly 10 to 15 minutes. After removing your feet from the water, use a pumice stone to get rid of dead skin. Then apply petroleum jelly and put on a pair of loose cotton socks. This process should also be repeated until you notice smoother feet.

Other common methods include scrubbing, lemon, overripe banana and oatmeal and have been accepted as home remedies that work well on dry and cracked feet. The issue can be resolved with minimal cost and just by possibly opening up your pantry!
