    Hi jaanu_2721,
    I'll usually do pedicure at home. I'll tell you the remedy i'm following:

    Take a hot water in a bucket and add 2 tea spoon of lemon juice, 2 drops of olive oil and 5 drops of shampoo. Let your legs inside the water for about 10 - 15 mins. at the mean time, clean your fingers with an old tooth brush.

    You can feel the difference of your legs after taking pedicure. You'll feel a relaxation in your legs. Make it once a week or twise a week.

    I'm eagerly waiting for others remedies also.

    Thanks,

    Dear Jaanu& Uma,
    This is how i do Pedicure at home:
    Warm water - 1 small tub
    Lemon juice - 4 drops
    Olive/Almond/Jojoba oil - 4 drops
    Pedicure shampoo(available in market) - 2 drops

    Keep Legs in Warm Water for 10- 15 mins.Remove dead skin by rubbing gently with a pedicure brush (dunt use the steel foot scrapper).
    Dry legs with a soft cloth.Apply Creams if u have cracked heels,else apply a moisturiser when the legs are still damp.

    Wearing socks is optional to avoid dust thru the cracked heels.

    Alternately to remove the dead skin u can use the pumice stone.

    Hmm.. Lime juice for pedicure. I never used it. I will try it next time.

    I do following..
    Soak feet in warm water, Pedicure shampoo and Hydrogen peroxide.

    I use exxfoliator to remove dead skin , masssage feet for 10 minutes. Then keep the foot in steamed towel. Take out feet and remove deadskin. I have couple of fuming stone for it. Then I apply nail cream. remove cuticles and massage nails. Apply preferred nail color and last use foot spray.

    I used to massage my feet first with coconut or olive oil before I start the pedicure...massaging used to make it easy to remove the dead cells once we start soaking our feet in hot water...

    I liked the suggestions here which I would like to try...its a bit different than the regime i used to follow...Thanks!!

    Whatever you use you have to use pumice stone and scrub it very well and cut and clena inside of the nails with a stiff tooth brush. Then moisturise:thumbsup
