How to get rid of hard skin
Corns and calluses typically don’t indicate foot or skin health issues. However, they take a long time to disappear when you leave them untreated. If you want to beautify your feet, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to remove hard skin at home:
- Soak feet in a bath or tub for approximately 10 minutes.
- Move a pumice stone or large file in circles, working the hardened skin at an angle.
- Use a moisturiser or a BHA/AHA acid exfoliant once the hard skin’s been removed and feet are dry.
- Acid exfoliants help to further remove any little bits of hard skin you might have missed with the pumice stone/file.
Alternatively, if the idea of manually removing your hard skin yourself makes you feel a bit queasy, some treatments make the process almost effortless. Buy an acid exfoliant sock and wear it after a bath or shower.
Around ten days later, you’ll shed all the hard skin on your feet like a snake. Splash a little bit more cash and head to a spa or beauty salon, as many offer callus removal treatments which remove all hard skin in an hour.
