Home remedies for calluses
Baking soda is a popular home remedy for removing calluses. A foot bath solution with three tablespoons of baking soda in one liter of warm water gently loosens the upper layer of the calluses. After about 15 minutes in the baking soda bath, you can gently remove the softened callus with a fine foot file.
Special callus creams with ingredients such as urea help to soften the calluses and reduce them in the long term. Apply the cream regularly to the affected areas and use a foot file to carefully remove the calluses.
Electric callus planers are a good choice for efficient callus removal. Such devices are easy to use and offer a quick solution to removing thick calluses. Make sure that the intensity of the planer can be adjusted to adapt the treatment to your needs.
