Fill a shallow basin with enough lemon juice to cover your feet. Put your feet in the basin and let them soak for 10 minutes. The acid in the lemon juice will help to dissolve dry and dead skin cells. Lightly scrub your feet with a loofah after soaking them to take off the loosened dead skin cells. This should be done daily to relieve the dry and cracked skin on your feet.
Blend the pulp of a ripe banana in a blender. Rub the banana onto your cracked and dry feet. Leave it for 10 minutes, then gently wipe clean with a soft rag. Do this every day until the dryness and cracked skin are gone.
Wash your feet well with a wet rag, then use a paper towel to apply a thick coating of vegetable oil or shortening on the cracked and dry spots. Put on a pair of thick socks and go to bed. Leaving the oil or shortening on overnight will greatly reduce the dryness of your feet. You can also use 1 tablespoon of petroleum jelly mixed with the juice of 1 lemon. Do this nightly until your feet are soft and smooth.
Soak your feet in warm water for 10 minutes, then rub a pumice stone back and forth over the cracked and dry spots. Dry your feet well, then put on some moisturizing lotion and a pair of socks. Do this every couple of days until the dryness is gone, then twice a week thereafter to keep feet from becoming dry and cracked.
