Let’s learn how to use a pumice stone.
Soak your feet in warm water for about 10 minutes. This will make the skin softer and loosen the callouses.
Use the pumice stone to gently scrape away any dry, rough, or thickened skin. Use gentle, circular motions to avoid scratching your skin.
Rinse your foot with cool water and pat dry with a towel. If desired, you can apply lotion to your feet once they are completely dry.
Don’t soak your feet for too long. Doing so can dry out the skin, which causes more cracks and callouses to form.
If you have thickened or dead skin on your heels, try applying lotion after your daily shower or bath before putting on socks. Then put on socks and shoes as usual. This will help the lotion soak into the skin on your heels.
If you have cracks or cuts on your feet, wear socks or stockings to help protect your feet from irritation.
Don’t walk around barefoot in public places like the beach or in locker rooms, especially with other people who might have infections that can be passed on to you.
Don’t cut any calluses or corns yourself. Doing so could result in infection and injury to the foot.
So this is how you can use a pumice stone.
