Have you been hiding your feet in closed-toe shoes because of unwanted calluses? Dry, callused feet are not only an eyesore, they're also painful to deal with. Try these tips to get your feet feeling smooth again before the warm weather really kicks in!

soak feet in water

A good place to start is soaking your feet--even better if you can do it in a foot bath, like this All In On Foot Spa Bath Massager ($76.98). 


Soak them in warm water for 10 minutes will let the skin soften, making it easier to remove the callused skin.

castor oil

Castor oil is also known to help reduce calluses and corns. After soaking your feet, dab some NOW Castor Oil ($9.20) on trouble spots and corns. Within 10 days the corns should begin to go down, according to Reader's Digest.

pumice stone

Once you're done soaking your feet, try using a pumice stone to smooth out the calluses. They won't disappear forever after the first time using a pumice, so keep on trying it multiple times a week to see them begin to smooth out.


Natural Earth Lava Pumice Stone for Foot Callus ($9.97)

foot lotion

Lotion is necessary for preventing callused feet. Apply a foot lotion, like Gold Bond Ultimate Softening Foot Cream with Shea Butter ($5.98), daily onto your feet so they don't dry out, and try using unscented to avoid irritation on the fragile skin that was just pumiced away.
