This is how the undamaged, soft, smooth, and ready-to-show feet look like.
The long winter is a real punishment for your feet
After hours of wearing shoes, your feet can sometimes get calluses. This can be pretty unpleasant experience, and it often causes pain.
Calluses are a natural shield made by the skin
The callus is formed on the foot area that has been exposed to the greatest amount of pressure. This skin thickening represents a system of protection from further skin damage.
However, calluses can represent a huge problem
Calluses that become swollen can represent a real problem. They are bigger and more convex, which means that they cause a greater pain when touched by your shoes when you walk.
Find the remedy in your home!
A lot of ingredients that everyone has in their home can be used for the elimination of this problem.
Take a piece of bread, soak it into some white vinegar, and apply the bread onto the callus and wrap a bandage around it. Leave it overnight so that it has enough time to work. Repeat the process several days later, and you will be amazed by the results you are going to get.
Apple cider vinegar
Add a cup of apple cider vinegar to a container of warm water and soak your feet in the solution. All nodules on your feet are going to soften to the extent that you will be able to remove them using pumice stone.
Whenever you use pumice stone for your heels, rub your feet very gently, because if you do it aggressively, you will only make the situation worse.
When you soak your feet in a mix of water and vinegar, you can apply some castor oil onto the nodules. Do this every day for at least ten days.
Apply vitamin A or vitamin E directly onto the skin
Take a vitamin pill, crack it, and apply the pill content directly onto your skin. This is a process you should do each night before you go to bed.
Onion during the night
Soak an onion slice into some white vinegar and place it onto your foot, put a sock on and leave it overnight. The onion will work wonders for your feet.
Take a lemon peel and apply it onto the nodule, wrap a bandage around and leave it overnight. This process is supposed to be repeated until the nodule disappears completely.
Take a couple of aspirins, powder them, and add some water and apple cider vinegar so that you make a paste. Apply the paste onto the damaged skin parts and wrap a bandage around them.
After the application of the above-mentioned recipes, your feet will become renewed, healthy, and pretty enough so that you are not ashamed to walk around barefoot or wear open footwear.
