The calluses can develop on the areas of the hands and feet where the repetitive pressure or friction is applied on a regular basis. And that causes the skin to die and thicken, to prevent further damage to the area. The corns and calluses might be caused by any activities that use something foreign to your body. Wearing shoes with no socks, using tools, and anything else that may cause irritating rubbing on the skin can lead to a callus.
But, fortunately there are numerous natural remedies that can alleviate the pain and dried skin of the callus. Each of these home remedies requires simple household items, and also they are just as effective, or even more than the medical treatments.
1. Bread and Vinegar
Maybe sounds like a strange combination for one home remedy, but it is one of the most effective on the list. You only have to soak the bread in white or apple cider vinegar until it is completely saturated. The soaked bread will make the callus soft and easy to erase. Also, the callus should be prepped with a soaking of warm water and with a pumice stone in order to remove the dead surface skin.
Massage the bread and vinegar blend into the callus. Cover the paste with a bandage and leave it on over night. Remove the bandage in the morning. After this the callus should be drastically reduced. The light layer of lotion can help restore the skin. But, if the callus is particularly large, it might be
necessary a second treatment.
The lemon juice contains acidic substances that can do wonders for reducing the presence of the calluses. It can be applied to the callus in a number of ways, including and directly with a lemon rind or by soaking a cotton ball in the lemon juice. In either case, it should be pressed into the callus and
covered with the bandage so it can soak overnight. The lemon acid will soften the skin of the callus, and it will be entirely gone within a few days.
