Here is another concoction you can make yourself: two parts apple cider vinegar, five parts ground rice, one part honey, and some olive oil, and you’ve got yourself some homemade foot exfoliator.

Sure, you could soak your feet in lemon juice, but that would be a little painful (plus a waste of good lemon.) Instead, you can mix some lemon juice with olive oil and make your own foot moisturizer. The active ingredients in the lemon will help the dead skin peel off.
Mind Your Shoes
