What causes dry skin and calluses?

Calluses are the built up of flat hard skin. It is usually located on the bottom of the hands and feet. It is caused by the repeated friction or pressure in a particular area. Calluses are different from corns. Corn is typically a soft core that falls inward.

Dry skin that people usually have, is because of the environmental factors like weather, humidity level, hot showers and many other factors can lead to cause calluses to become uncomfortable.

Generally, calluses can be more uncomfortable when they will be in contact without a tight shoe, adding pads if needed. This product uses the salicylic acid to soften the calluses and removing with the pumice stone and much more.

Even in some severe cases, you might need to visit your podiatrist for the removal of calluses professionally, or to buy the specialized orthotics that can help to prevent the calluses from getting worse. Thus, this relieves at least some measures of discomfort.

From the moisturization perspective, American Academy of Dermatology do not recommend excessive hot baths or showers. It also doesn’t recommend to use any gentle, fragrance-free cleansers, or applying an ointment or cream (other then lotion) immediately after bathing or using a humidifier at home, particularly during the season of winter when the heat can dry out skin.

  1. You can make it yourself. Just add a few drops of good tea tree oil to some organic shea butter. A little coconut oil is nice. All you need. It works and costs WAY less than this chemical stew pot.

    • You are right on…. good call,
