Hello there. My name is Jessica Delfino. And I am a performer and musician in New York City. I play guitar and ukelele, and you can find out more about what I do at yourocknyc.com, That's y o u r o c k n y c.com. Today we're going to talk about how to smooth out your calluses on your fingertips. So, basically if you have calluses on your fingertips, what that probably means is you are rocking all the time which is great because you're probably getting really good at playing guitar. However, you want to have a nice smoothness to your fingers. When you're holding hands or when you're touching things, you want to be able to really use your finger tips. So what I would recommend doing, there's a few things you can do. You can put lotion on your hands and you can also exfoliate if you have like a little, you can get these kind of scrubbers at any drugstore, pumice or pumice, never knew how to pronounce that. Anyway you just scrub the tips a little bit with some lotions or some kind of exfoliant. And you can also use an Emory board if you don't have an exfoliant or whatever. You just use a little Emory board and kind of file the tips of the actual skin on your fingernails, instead of just the nails themselves. Just give it a little file like that. And you can put the lotion on your hands, rub the lotion in. And before you go to bed you can even put a pair of clean socks or clean cotton gloves on your hands. And while you sleep all the moisturizer soaks in and it smooths out those calluses. Before you know it your fingers are soft as new. So lots of luck to you. Thanks for watching and happy rockin'.
