If you want smooth, soft feet, without any calluses then you need to go through a three step process. Now the three steps of this process are soaking, scrubbing and drying. These three steps can be carried out in many different ways and some of them are briefly described here.
The first step in the three step process is soaking. In this step, you need to soak your feet using warm water and some additional ingredient if you want. This step helps to soften your hard and dry skin. You need to soften your skin because in the next you are going to scrub your feet. Soft skin makes it really easy to be removed and much more comfortable. There are many ways a person can perform this step using different ingredient each time.
Using Epsom salt along with lukewarm water not hot water will help to soften your calluses and remove toxins. Another way is to use chamomile tea to soak your feet for 30 minutes. These different ways will help to soften hard feet and help to remove dead skin cells in the scrubbing part.
Scrubbing, this is the step where you get rid of calluses on feet using scrub. It’s best to use a proper file for removing calluses after you have done the soaking step. One can always do this after they have taken a nice shower as their feet have already been soaked in warm water. Use a file scrub your feet in a circular motion. This will help you to get rid of all the dead skin cells and also calluses. One can also use a pumice stone to do the scrubbing. You need to do this two times a week and continue till you are satisfied with the result.
An interesting fact you may like to know is that if you take a walk on a wet sandy beach barefoot everyday then you may never have to go through this process.
Always remember to dry your feet after going through scrubbing if you don’t want any more calluses. It’s really important not to allow your feet to remain damp. Try using a proper towel to remove your moisture. It’s even better if you use corn starch on your feet after this process. Using corn starch helps with two things; first is it helps your dry out your feet and secondly it wards off any impending feet infections.
Once you have done these three steps then moisturize your feet. Try using your normal skin moisturizer or you can get a proper feet moisturizing cream.
I always say it’s better to go natural where your body is concerned. It’s just as true in this matter and as I have already explained you the three steps you could combine the both. Here are some home remedies that you can use as part of a three step process.
Chamomile tea is very well known for its aroma and for soothing your nerves, but it might come as a shock that it can also help in getting rid of calluses. This works best if you have extremely sweaty feet as chamomile tea is best to bring your pH level as is suited for your skin. Make a proper batch of chamomile tea using a couple of tea bags and soak your feet in it for at least 10 minutes. Then soak your feet in warm water for another 30 minutes or so and then go for the next step. Don’t be alarmed if you find your legs a bit colored because chamomile tea does leave some stain, but it can easily be removed using soap and water.
When it comes to home remedies for scrubbing there nothing better than a sugar scrub. Sugar scrub is already known for its exfoliating quality on face, but it can also work your feet where calluses are concerned. Take a half cup of sugar in granular form, add mineral oil till you have a paste and add couple drops of lemon essence oil. Now use this paste to scrub your feet after soaking. Remember to wash your feet after this scrub and then pat it dry.
Lastly if you are unable to remove calluses even after using all the home remedies and step, don’t get frustrated and cut it out. Instead go to a specialist and seek a proper treatment.
