2. Roll a tennis ball under your feet for a surprisingly great massage.

This one is awesome because you can do it from the comfort of your couch or desk. Casually loosen tight hamstrings while binge-watching TV shows!

3. Soak your feet in green tea if you've got blisters.

We all know green tea is good for you — but it's also good for your feet! Soaking your feet in green tea can help with those blisters you got from that new pair of (gorgeous) shoes. No more suffering for fashion!

4. Use bread to remove calluses and corns.

Treat your feet while you're making your next PB&J! To soften calluses, pour 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar into a bowl, and then place a small slice of bread in the bowl and let it soak up the vinegar. Then, place the bread on your callus and wrap it in gauze. Sounds weird, but who cares as long as it works, right?

5. To relieve tendonitis, mix cayenne pepper and olive oil!

Tenderness, inflammation, and acute pain are all symptoms of tendonitis. To make a natural pain reliever, mix two tablespoons of cayenne pepper with half a cup of warm olive oil. The pep in your step will return in no time... and all you needed were two pantry ingredients.

6. Remove the yellow from over-polished toenails by using a denture cleanser.

If you love pedicures, this tip is for you. To combat the yellowish tint that can appear on toenails that are always polished, just drop a denture cleanser into a foot bath and take a soak. The next time you get a pedicure, you'll feel what it's like to enter the judgment-free zone.

7. Treat cracked feet with avocado and banana!

Cracked feet are the WORST! Depending on the severity, try rubbing mashed-up bananas (or avocados for more severe pain), mixing in some lemon juice and honey, and then letting that mixture cover the area for 15 minutes. It's like a refreshing smoothie for your feet.

8. Reduce odor with a homemade coconut-lime scrub.

If you've always been "the one with the smelly feet," your friends are gonna have to come up with a new descriptor for you once you soak your feet in this coconut-lime scrub. It does so many things for your feet — in addition to fighting odor, it rejuvenates skin, protects against infection, and even reduces swelling. Win-win-win.

9. Make your feet extra soft by giving them an aspirin bath.

Give yourself the feet of a goddess by treating them to some aspirin! Just crush up five to six tablets and create a thick mixture by adding in some lemon juice. Massage the paste on your feet, wrap them in plastic wrap, and throw on some socks. Wait 10 minutes, and then wash them clean. Your feet will practically radiate!

10. And treat them to a minty fresh cleanse!

'Tis the season for peppermint! Mix two cups sugar, 1/2 cup warmed coconut oil, and about 15 drops of peppermint oil to make a soothing and fresh-smelling rub for those achy feet. Best holiday present to yourself ever.
