A strange combination at first glance, but it does wonders for rough heels. Mix 1 cup of mouthwash, preferably strong mint, and 1 cup of apple cider vinegar in 2 cups of warm water. Soak feet for 15 minutes. Take them out of there and before drying immediately wipe the heels with a pumice stone.Rinse with clean water, dry and apply a moisturizing cream.
Rice flour, honey and vinegar
Make a homemade scrub by mixing 3 tablespoons of rice flour, 1 tablespoon of honey and 2-3 drops of apple cider vinegar. Soak feet for 10 minutes in hot water. Rub the mixture into your heels. After rinsing again use the pumice stone to remove the dead calloused skin.
Baking soda and olive oil
Baking soda works many wonders, one of which is healing calloused heels. Mix 3 tablespoons of baking soda in a basin of warm water. Stir well to dissolve the baking soda. Soak feet for 15 minutes. Take them out and use the pumice stone again. Rinse with warm water, apply olive oil. Put on thick cotton socks and let the olive oil work overnight. In the morning, the skin on your feet will be softened and nourished.
