Calluses can appear at any time of the year. Contrary to the rumours that might think that they are due to a lack of hygiene, they can nevertheless exist for several reasons.
Among them, heredity, uncomfortable shoes, excessive perspiration but also age… can all contribute to their development.
But the good news is that no matter why they are there, these few tips will surely help get rid of them. And even better, to prevent their (re)appearance.
Foot calluses and treatment
So how do you treat dry feet that are sometimes uncomfortable? Here are our solutions to have the most beautiful feet this summer.
First, prepare a foot bath in warm water where you will immerse your feet in for 10 to 30 minutes. This will soften the callus for an easier exfoliation.
Next, rub the dry area with a pumice stone or our terracotta scrub stone. Stemming from the typically Moroccan craft industry, this stone of gumming is the darling of the Moroccan women since years. Made from 100% natural ingredients, it is also environmentally friendly. A small circular massage on the points to be treated and it’s done.
NB: Be careful not to rub too much so as not to hurt yourself or remove normal skin.
Then apply the refreshing exfoliating cream that will rid the affected area of its dead cells. This miraculous product offers immediate and long-term results. Your feet will thank you for using it. Rice powder, Argan chips, kaolin, Argan butter and oil: a concoction that will make more than one person happy.
Finally, nourish and moisturize your feet with our Foot cream. This cream has been specially designed to treat this dryness and is therefore more appropriate than “normal” body creams.
Repeat these steps once or twice a week and you will be surprised at the results.
Be careful not to overdo it, however, as this may encourage the skin to form a thicker crust quickly to protect itself.
NB : a foot callus treatment by a specialist should be done if they are extremely painful and if the subject is diabetic.
How to prevent callus formation?
Feet, which are very sensitive areas produce very little sebum, and they dry out even more with age. This means that they need to be nourished with different creams depending on skin type, over time.
If you’ve followed the advices above and the signs of dryness have effectively disappeared, here’s how to make sure they don’t reappear.
An exfoliation routine to fight against dry feet
The key to avoiding excess callus is to exfoliate the feet regularly. To do this, use our desert sand scrub or the refreshing exfoliating cream mentioned above. Do this at least once a week to prevent the heel from forming calluses again.
And choose to moisturize your feet as well, ideally in the evening with the Foot cream. Apply the cream, put on your cotton socks and voilà. A nice little bridal foot mask!
If you also notice that your feet perspire easily and abundantly, you can add a small spoonful of baking soda to your shoes. This acts as an effective natural anti-perspirant.
