Every girl wants soft feet. Unfortunately, calluses and corns easily take over feet. Here’s how to keep your feet smooth and soft year round.

Change your footwear

The most common cause of a corn or callus is poorly fitting shoes. A shoe may be too tight or too loose and rub across the toes. So a good fitting shoe with a lace or strap and supportive heel is the first step in preventing calluses and corns from forming.

Apply an emollient or moisturizer to your feet

After bathing or showering. It is best to do this when you are sitting down so that it can soak into the skin. If your skin is very dry then you may be more prone to calluses and corns.

Dry your feet thoroughly, paying particular attention between your toes

Avoid powders as they will get trapped between your toes and make the matters worse and if your feet sweat a great deal, the sweat may collect between your toes and form a soft corn.

Visit your podiatrist

If you continue to get corns and calluses. They will be able to tell you the cause of the problem along with removing the corn or callus. In some cases the cause may be due to a mechanical or structural problem with your foot.

Exfoliate Your Feet

Just like every other skin surface, your feet need to be exfoliated once in a while. This process removes the dead, dry skin that makes feet rough and unsightly. If your shoes apply pressure and rub against your skin, that thickening layer of skin on your foot may be the early formation of a corn or callus.
