How to to Remove Calluses
With the great service provided by our feet, it is only right that we dedicate a few moments of care. The most common problems with our feet are the formation of calluses and hardness and tiredness. Here are some ways we can take care of our feet from home.
Home remedies for calluses
Callus is formed in order to protect the skin. These are patches of thickened and insensitive skin that forms along the pressure points of the foot, such as the heels, fingers and bony areas. Sometimes there are painful calluses and sometimes they do not hurt but we do not want to have that hardened skin anyway.
A good home remedy for calluses is to soak your feet in the water so that it softens. Then use a pumice stone to remove it. Repeat once or twice a week.
Another option is to soak two slices of onion in wine vinegar for 4 hours. At 4 o’clock the slices of onion are placed on the calluses and the foot is wrapped with kitchen plastic and the socks are put on. Natural beauty. This remedy should be done at bedtime because it should be left overnight. The next day the callus is scraped with pumice stone.
People suffering from diabetes or circulatory problems should consult with a professional before treating the callus themselves.
Home Remedies for Hardness
The hardness usually forms on the toes. Hardnesses are areas of thickened skin with a hard center and are painful.
A good home remedy for hardness is castor oil. Another remedy is to tie a slice of lemon to the affected area using a bandage and leave it all night. Repeat for one week.
Another very effective natural remedy is to rub the hardness with a few drops of lemon oil, then cover it with plastic for 15 minutes.
