Pamper yourself with a spa night in minutes! Make a bath with our favorite soap and lukewarm water in the container of your choice. Next, soak your feet for about 20 minutes until they feel soft. Consider a scrubbing brush or loofah to remove the dead skin afterward. Take the time to relax and read a great book while the soak does the trick.

May sound sticky but you can use Vaseline on your heels and put on a pair of socks to soften them overnight. The heat of your socks will let the moisture set in and you can just toss them in the washing machine after. This tip is also great when you need a night off to rest your feet.
