The 5 Important Home Remedies for Corns and Calluses

When our feet are exposed to excess friction, we may develop corns or calluses. Calluses are rough, dry looking patches composed of scaly, dead skin and when they are a bit smaller and painful, they are considered corns – corns usually appear on the top of the feet or between the toes. Instead of wasting money on drugstore products, try one of these natural home remedies next time you are faced with a corn or calluses.

Apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is a godsend for both of these issues, however, the process of removing the two is quite different. For callus removal, just soak your feet into a mixture of warm water and a cup of apple cider vinegar (you can use more for severe cases) for at least 15 minutes allowing the calluses to soften. Once at this state, the dead skin can be removed with a foot scraper or pumice stone. It will take about 10 days to fully get rid of corns after dabbing the area with the vinegar at least three times a day and filing down the skin as it softens.
