Take your feet out, rinse, dry and apply lotion. This will leave your feet feeling amazingly clean and very soft.
Salicylic Acid Solution
Hair products with salicylic acid in them are devised specifically to tackle dandruff and other dry scalp conditions, and home cures involving the use of salicylic acid may prove highly effectual in getting rid of dead cells and calluses.
If you are experiencing dry, callused feet, buy a hair product containing salicylic acid and apply it over your feet. Leave on for sometime and then wash off you feet as usual. At the end apply a generous amount of foot cream or lotion and don a pair of clean, cotton socks to hold in moisture. You feet would feel much softer after undergoing this treatment.
A potion created by mixing adequate quantities of lukewarm water, dish-washing liquid and white vinegar is another highly benefiting remedy to help those excessively dry feet. Simply soak your feet in this remedial solution and let them sit for almost thirty minutes before rinsing as usual. After rinsing, pat your feet dry and apply your standard moistening lotion allover your feet, getting them into sock right away.
