How to remove calluses?
Although calluses are not necessarily welcome on the foot, they develop to protect the foot from further damage. Not only is the skin on our feet much tougher, it is also more prone to becoming dry, cracked and infected. Calluses are caused by uneven weight distribution, generally on the bottom of the forefoot or heel. Calluses can be caused by improper footwear or by a skin abnormality. However, some degree of callus formation on the sole of the foot is quite normal. If you want to remove the callus, then proper care is required.

A foot bath is of great importance when it comes to "removing calluses". So at night, soak your feet in a bucket of warm water and baking soda. This will dissolve the dead skin cells and soften the calluses. You can also take an Epsom s alt bath to soothe the skin. In any case, it is important to completely dry the skin after soaking. While warm water is good for your feet skin, prolonged moisture can lead to fungal infections.

Pumice stones are light, porous stones used by many people to exfoliate dead skin and calluses. These stones work preferably after a footbath. Adding Epsom s alts to the water can only improve results. When skin is softened, remove calluses with gentle circular or sideways motions. Repeat this for several days in a row to get the desired results.

A foot file is another tool used to remove calluses. As with pumice stones, it is best to soften the callus in warm water before using a file. Many people use foot files when bathing or showering. After filing the callus, using a moisturizer can help keep the skin soft.

To make such a paste yourself, mix 2 tablespoons of water with enough baking soda to make a paste and then add a few drops of lime juice.
Apply the mixture to the calloused areas and put on socks afterwards. Repeat this application every evening until the callus disappears.
