So many of us suffer from these, hard little patches of built up skin! Don´t worry, its perfectly normal, when a body part continually rubs against something the tender skin forms a protective barrier of hard skin to protect the area it feels is in danger of an injury. The most common place for calluses is on the hands and feet. It does take time to get rid of them, but it can be done. There are even a couple of good and, even better, natural and inexpensive homemade solutions: Sugar Scrubs: Place ¾ cup of granulated sugar in a dry jar, and add enough mineral oil to form a loose paste, after that you can add peppermint, spearmint, sandalwood, musk or any essential oil (optional). Mix it all together, then scrub and gently massage, you can use this anywhere you want to have smooth, soft skin. Do this before shaving your legs, it feels incredible! Pineapple Peel and Oils: Cut strips of pineapple peel and cover the callus completely, then tape the pineapple peel in place and leave it on for a couple of hours and repeat it for one week, changing when necessary. The enzymes and acid content of the fresh pineapple will remove the callus. Another option is to apply wheat germ oil, castor oil, sesame oil, coconut oil or olive oil onto the callused area several times a day.
