Anyone looking to show off their feet need to have well-groomed skin and nails. Unsightly brown spots on the feet can have several causes and several solutions. Having manicured toenails and smooth feet with an even skin tone is important for good grooming. Most of the treatments for brown spots on the feet are made from natural, inexpensive ingredients found in the home. With some preparation and time, your feet can be smooth and spot-free in no time.

Things You'll Need

Fill a tub or large bowl with hot water, but not so hot that your skin will burn. Add 1/2 cup of Epsom salts and 1 cup of milk. Soak your bare feet in this solution until the water turns lukewarm. The milk and Epsom salts loosen dead skin cells very well.

Scrub your feet with a pumice stone. Be gentle but persistent in removing hardened skin and calluses. Try to remove the brown spots, which are dead skin cells.

Soak some raw almonds in water and crush them into a paste mixture with honey. Apply this paste to any remaining brown spots on your feet. Wait until it dries and then scrub it off. You may have to repeat this procedure a few times before you see results. This mixture will gently bleach away the brown spots over the period of a few days.

Apply foot lotion or baby oil over your feet every day to prevent dry skin. Brown spots are commonly caused by dry skin buildup over time.


  • Slather your feet in sunscreen to prevent sunburn and spots from forming.

  • Soak your feet in Epsom salts once a week to prevent brown spots.
