How to Remove Hard Skin On Your Feet

Hard skin on your skin can sometimes be disturbing to get off your skin particularly when you have to put on open shoes.

This is because, In an effort to defend itself from pressure or friction, the skin strives to form calluses or corns, which are thick layers of hardened skin.

What you need to know about calluses or corns

A callus is an area of thickened and sometimes hardened skin that forms as a response to repeated friction, pressure, or other irritation. Since repeated contact is required, calluses are most often found on the feet and hands, but they may occur anywhere on the skin.

Calluses are generally not harmful and help keep off blisters from your feet.

NOTE: excessive formation may sometimes lead to other problems, such as skin infections.

What causes calluses or corns

Perhaps you've been wondering why the Calluses are not leaving your feet and you think there are things that you need to change.

What is the difference between corn and a callus?

Corns are small lumps of hard skin. Calluses are larger patches of rough, thick skin. Corns and calluses can also be tender or painful.

It attacks different foot inches.

Well, below might be the reasons why the calluses aren't getting off your feet:

Calluses are caused by friction and repetitive pressure on the skin.

This could happen due to:

  • Wearing loose-fitting shoes that continuously rub on the skin
  • Wearing tight shoes or high heels
  • Using hand tools such as jembes, and pangas causes pressure on the palms

However, the multiple risk factors for developing calluses are:

  • Hammertoe - toes that are curled up
  • Not wearing gloves when handling tools
  • Bunions - a bony bump on the big toe
  • Weight gain creates pressure on the feet

Lucky enough you can be able to prevent corns on your feet by using these simple ways:

  • put on shoes that give enough room for your toes
  • Wear protective covering like padded gloves when handling  farm tools
  • Wear felt pads or bandages on your feet to avoid further damage.

In order to remove the dead skin that has built up on the foot, this therapy uses solutions such as fruit enzymes or citric acid.

Fruit enzyme-containing solutions are frequently used in foot and peel scrubs. Apply light pressure and rub the skin in a circular motion with the pumice stone's abrasive side. The dead skin cells will start to degrade and come off as a result of the friction.

2. Feet Soaking
