Step-by-Step Instructions for Tending to Calluses & Corns

What’s the difference between the two? Calluses are a buildup of rough, thick patches of skin on your feet (and sometimes hands).

Corns are similar, yet the buildup is more concentrated in one area and can be deep at their core. They can be soft or hard, depending on what area of the body they’re on. For example, if one is between your toes, chances are it’s soft because the moisture keeps it so.

If you spend a lot of time standing each day or your tootsies experience regular pressure and rubbing, they can develop more easily – especially as you grow older.

Some like to take care of them by digging at or clipping them off with toenail clippers and small razors. Please don’t, it’s too easy to give yourself an infection since the tools aren’t sterilized or you can nip yourself too deeply.

Here are instructions to help get things back into shape.

Materials Needed:

1/2 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Kosher salt
Pumice Stone



Caution: If you have diabetes, it’s always recommended to consult your doctor first before doing any type of foot care regimen.
