The grass is starting to turn green and even though it’s still cold, I know I’ll be getting my sandals out soon. After a long winter, my feet are in serious need of a little bit of pampering before I feel confident enough to slip on sandals.
Homemade Salt Scrub for Feet
After months of cold weather, your feet my be dry and have rough spots or callouses. These rough spots and callouses need to be removed gently to get your feet ready for warm weather. Once they are removed, your feet should be moisturized to keep them soft and smooth.
Depending on how thick the callouses on your feet are, you may need to use a product to gently remove the worst of them before you use this salt scrub. The key is to be very gentle. I have seen metal files and pumice stones that may be too harsh especially if you aren’t used to using them.
How to remove callouses from your feet
The Skoother’s unique, Micro-Abrasive Screen has been tested and proven as a safe and highly effective dermabrasion in a Clinical Study performed by a team of doctors at the University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor.
The Skoother smoothing screen is made from tiny silicon carbide particles that are permanently bonded to a flexible nylon mesh. It’s tough and effective enough to smooth out dry, cracked calluses on your heels and feet, yet gentle enough to lightly smooth dry, rough skin on the more sensitive areas like your elbows and knees.
The flexible, waterproof smoothing screen also allows the fine particles of exfoliated skin to pass through the mesh without clogging up easily.
