After a long and tiring day of work, it calls for a much-needed relaxation session for your feet! To get rid of dry skin and rough spots, soak your soles in a gentle bath of baking soda. All you have to do is to mix three tablespoons of baking soda in some warm water and dip your feet in it for 20 minutes. If you wish to utilise the max out of it and wish to exfoliate your feet further, then prepare a paste with three parts of baking soda mixed with one part of water and use this to gently scrub your feet.
Mix two tablespoons bath salt with two teaspoons of oatmeal or commonly known as daliya, one teaspoon baking soda and three tablespoons of water. Apply this mixture to your feet and scrub your feet for 10 minutes to get rid of dead skin and dirt. Oatmeal makes for an amazing exfoliator and when it is combined with baking soda and salt, it helps in softening the skin on your feet and soothes the itches.
