...Corns and Calluses...

These ugly little bumps and lumps are a trash heap of discarded dead skin cells. They develop from friction and irritation between your feet and your shoes or even between adjacent bones on the same foot.
A Calluse is your body's way of protecting you from pressure. When there is extreme pressure the calluse will get thicker and thicker. If it develops a hard core, it becomes a corn. You can live with a calluse a lot easier than you can with a corn. Corns can be painful and will ruin a wonderful day. Try some of these tips to start your day if you are suffering from corns and calluses.

1. Resist the temptation to pare down corns and calluses with a razor blade, scissors, or any other sharp instruments. This could lead to infections and worse.

2. Enjoy a good soak in Epsom salts and warm water.

3. Try to avoid putting tight shoes on your feet.

4. Use a pumice stone to lightly abrade the area and rub off the top layers of skin after a good soak.

5. Use about 5 asprin in your soak water to soften really tough calluses.

Using these corn and calluses tips is the most comfortable natural way to maintain healthy feet.
