The One Thing You Should Never Do To Calluses

During the summer, I’m a regular at my local nail salon. Summer means sandals and for the sake of those around me, I like to keep my feet groomed and my toes polished. However, once winter rolls around and my boots come out, I’m a little less faithful to my pedicurist. Come boot season, I don’t see my feet as much so I tend to nelegect them. Which means that after a couple of weeks of winter, my feet are callused and cracked. A quick scrub during a pedicure fails to do trick, so I usually have to take matters into my own hands.

However, callus removal can be complicated. I’m wary of using razors on my calluses. This is because you need to be extremely careful not to cut yourself. Razors and graters can often do more harm than good. in fact, celebrity manicurist Tracylee warns, “I don’t recommend scraping or grating calluses because it can lead to cuts or infections. Instead, I like to gently remove calluses using a coarse foot file like the Amopé Pedi Perfect Wet & Dry Rechargeable Foot File which can be used on wet or dry skin. It’s a gentle yet effective tool to remove hard skin and stubborn calluses.”

Amopé Pedi Perfect Wet & Dry Rechargeable Foot File ($44.99)

Amopé Rechargabele Foot File gently removes hard, cracked skin and leaves your feet feeling smooth and soft. The versatile tool can be used wet or dry, which means you can keep it in the shower. Plus, you know a product is good when it has 4.5 stars on Amazon and over 1,800 reviews. Reviewers claim they saw “amazing results” and after using it their feet were a “whole new level of soft.” No pedicure needed.

Bonus tip: Before removing calluses, I reccomend prepping your feet by soaking your feet in the bath for a few minutes so the callus gets soft. Take the foot file and go in one direction. You want to avoid going back and forth in a scrubbing motion because this can make skin rougher.
