How To Use A Foot Pumice

Are you one of those people who suffer with callouses and hard areas on your feet?  One great thing that you can do to show your feet some loving care is to remove as much dead skin from your feet as possible with a pumice. It took some practice, however I can use a pumice with ease. When I think about all the hours which I spend on my feet, I have to treat my feet well.

Usually I soak my feet in warm water, for 20 minutes. then I wet the pumice and begin to gently rub at the hard skin.  After a couple of minutes of medium pressure, the dead skin begins to fall away. I make a point never to rub to hard, as this could have an adverse effect.

Once I have finished using the pumice I will pat my feet dry. Then I apply either moisturiser or vitamin cream to my feet. I will then use hot water, soap and a nail brush to clean my pumice. After that I let my pumice air dry.

Footcare for Walkers

It is easy to use a foot pumice, they are easily available and reasonably priced.  Pumices can be made from volcanic matter or alternatively some pumices are made from glass.  There are even electrical pumices, which are ideal for cracked heels.

Usually, I remove any dry skin from my feet using a pumice. I will then apply a generous organic coconut oil onto my feet and ankles.  For even better results an extra I will cover my treated feet with a pair socks, and leave overnight.  When I wake up, my feet are both refreshed and soft.  I walk a lot, so I urge other walkers to be proactive when it comes to foot care.

In closing, it is worth noting that using a pumice isn’t for everyone. Some people prefer to use a foot file and find using a pumice to be too abrasive. Now you know how to use a foot pumice.
