Get rid of rough feet with an easy foot treatment that uses a combination of aspirin and lemon juice. The mixture helps to soften the calluses that form on your feet, making them easier to remove. Take a few minutes to pamper yourself with attention to foot care. Using this easy method a few times will help give you the soft feet you desire.

Crush five aspirin tablets and mix them with ½ teaspoon of water and ½ teaspoon of lemon juice to make a paste.

Apply the paste to calloused and dry area on both feet.

Wrap each foot in a warmed towel or put on warmed socks.

Relax with your feet wrapped and elevated for 10 minutes.

Remove the towels or socks and wipe away the paste with a washcloth.

Use a pumice stone to aid in the removal of the dead skin.

Apply your favorite foot cream and put on a fresh pair of socks.

Perform this foot treatment several times in one week until you get the results you want. After that, use the treatment once weekly for maintenance.


It's the salicylic acid in the aspirin which loosens the dead skin.

Some suggest covering your feet with plastic bags before wrapping the towel around them.
