    I recollect reading in an Ayurvedic post that applying castor oil helps to heal cracked feet.

    It is possible that the floor in your house dries up your feet and hence the cracks- it happens to me when I am at my parents. You should try the socks tip suggested.

    Hi,

    A simple home remedy if you are fond of henna. take fresh leaves,add a few neem leaves, a pinch of turmeric and grind it and apply. on continous application over a period of time your feet becomes smooth. this is possible only if you like to have colored feet.

    Otherwise, using glycerine based jelly's definitely helps....

    Before going to bed, try to soak your feet in hot water for 5mins then scrub with pumice stone or a tooth brush. then put enough amount of vaseline or petroleum jelly or a moisturizer , massage well and then put on fresh socks.(not the used ones)....and leave the socks on through out the night...

    see the result the next morning...this proved to be very effective...if you have really visible cracks..then follow this till the cracks get filled...works wonders...
