If you want to remove excess callus yourself, it is best to take a foot bath first. This makes the callus soft, making it easier to remove. Add a cup of Dead Sea salt to help your body excrete toxins through the feet at the same time.
You can remove the excess callus with a peeling. After you have soaked your feet in the foot bath, you can massage the calluses with the peeling. Leave for a few minutes and rinse well with lukewarm water.
If you have a lot of callus, you can also remove it with a Lava Stone. This only removes the outer layer of excess calluses after each shower. In this way, the skin remains protected and the existing calluses are more even and less rough. The lava stone is best used on wet skin.
With several other(metal) tools, you quickly run the risk of removing too many calluses. The skin then becomes sensitive and thin and will start to produce more calluses to protect itself.
Moisturizing foot cream
When you have removed the excess callus, rinse the feet with clean water and pat them dry. Then massage them with a Foot Cream against chapping and dry skin. Use this cream 1-2 times a day to prevent the callus from hardening and splitting causing chapping.
Have you tried to remove callus yourself, but are you still bothered by it? Please contact a (medical) pedicure or podiatrist.
