DIY Your Foot Callous Away

There’s more than one way to skin a cat. I’m talking about removing callous from your heals. In a regular pedicure, your technician uses a scrub and foot file and maybe a callous remover than contains gycolic acid.

You can assist in your own callous removal between your pedicures with a diy of products right out of your kitchen and bathroom.

Aspirin is basically salicylic acid, which aids in exfoliating the skin for easy callous removal. Lemon juice is acidic and when combined and mixed with aspirin, it softens the skin so that you can file it off. Because salicylic acid is much gentler than gycolic acid, you can leave the mixture on longer than a few minutes.  You can actual leave it on for 2 or more hours. Here is what you need to do.

Take 3-7 aspirin and crush them up in a bowl or container. Add water and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to the aspirin. Mix until it becomes a paste like consistency.  Apply it to the bottom of your feet on the callous area and wrap in plastic or use a plastic bag to cover. Let stand for as long as you have time for, then rinse and wipe clean.  File away the soften callous and apply a moisturizer.  Your feet should feel softer and your callous should be minimized. Try this twice a week until your next pedicuree and you will start seeing a big difference. It’s inexpensive, practicle and easy with great results.

So the next time you’re in your kitchen, you can look at your lemons with great aspirin-ration 😄. Try this at home and share your thoughts.
