3 Simple Way To Get Rid of Callus on Feet

Over this summer I am happy to say that my feet has overcome the callus problem that often occurs during this dry and hot season.  How I get rid of callus on my feet and keep them smooth is what I want to share with you in 3 simple steps:

1. Moisturize Your Feet Daily

Very important to moisturize your feet every day. I usually do that after shower. Be selective on choosing your body lotion. After trying this and that, I have come back and been using Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer for a long time now. It keeps my skin moisturized for the whole day so I don’t need to re-apply within 24 hours.

2. Scrub Callus with Pumice Stone

I noticed once during summer that the skin on my heels started to get harder and had some calluses. The longer I didn’t get rid of them, the more the calluses built up. Thinking I need to get rid of them before the situation got worse, I grabbed my pumice stone and Sooo Smooth Callus Dissolver.  I tried Pumice Stone first. Thankfully, it worked right away and the skin got much smoother afterwards.

In my opinion I don’t like foot scrub (sugar or salt). I find that it’s too easy to dissolve in water. So it lost the scrubbing power in a short time unless I use it on dry feet or hands.

3. Use Callus Dissolver/Remover

If you never treat your callus and it get thick even cracked, get a Callus Dissolver or Remover to help you remove the callus. This product will help you do the work and you simply buff them away.

Esther’s Nail Center has Sooo Smooth Callus Dissolver and Be Natural Callus Remover. They have been around in the market for a long, long time and both work wonderfully.

How to use Callus Remover

  • Wear gloves or rinse finger well after applying.
  • After soaking, liberally spread Callus Dissolver over callus.
  • Allow it to penetrate 2 – 3 minutes depending on callus buildup.
  • Then use a file or pumice stone to gently remove callus.
  • Wash thoroughly with water after use.

Caution: Always wash off Callus Dissolver within 7 minutes of application. Avoid contact with skin other than callused area. Do not apply to broken skin.

Apply it as necessary or when needed.  Below is the video how to use Be Natural Callus Eliminator.

3-Step Formula to Healthy and Beautiful Feet

Step 1 – Soak

 

Soaking feet in warm water for 10-15 minutes softens and relaxes them. To make soaking even more pleasant and effective you can add the following ingredients to the water:

  1. Epsom Salts will relieve tension and puffiness.
  2. Body oils or aromatherapy oils will be effective in softening the skin.
  3. Strong black tea used instead of plain water will help preventing smelly feet. The tannic acid in the tea kills bacteria and closes the pores, keeping the feet dry longer. Soak for 30 minutes for better results.

Adding soap to the water is not recommended as it dries the skin. For ultimately luxurious experience pamper your toes in a milk bath. The natural oils in milk will cleanse the feet and make them feel silky.

Step 2 – Scrub

There’s a wide range of products that can be used for scrubbing the feet to help getting rid of calluses and tough skin. Toe-rrific book offers some simple and natural ideas, which are as effective as expensive scrub mixes:

  1. You can make a homemade scrub by mixing oatmeal with water. Soft and smooth skin is guaranteed.
  2. To cut through the hard soles of the feet rub on a lemon or an orange. Simply cut them in half and use for scrubbing.
  3. Taking a walk on the sandy beach barefoot will naturally scrub your feet.

Be careful not to scrub away too much of the outer layer of the skin that protects your feet.

Step 3 – Sooth

You can use any kind of hand or body lotion or oil to moisturize your feet.

  1. For an extra pampering before going to bed apply moisturizer liberally and slip a pair of socks. You’ll wake up with happy and soft feet ready for a new day.
  2. Olive oil makes a great moisturizer and can be used just like regular skin lotion.
  3. For a special treatment for your nails apply some vitamin E and rub into the nail bed. This will help to heal dehydrated and split nails.

Some miscellaneous tips:

  1. Wearing cotton socks will let your feet breathe and will keep them from sweating.
  2. Putting some talcum powder in your shoes helps to soak up extra moisture.
  3. Always cut your toenails straight to avoid ingrown nails.
  4. Filing the nails always do it in one direction since sawing back and forth will weaken the nails and cause them to split.

And the most important tip – always have fun expressing your beautiful self with creative toenail designs.

This tips is provided by Toe-rrific. Besides Pedicure advice and tips Toe-rrific book includes nineteen design sections with a total of 200 toenail styles for any color or occasion: prom, beach getaway, night on the town and many more.
