Hi, everyone. My name is Joi, Licensed Nail Technician, and I'm going to answer the question for you today, "What is the lotion used to remove calluses?" So, the only thing I'm going to be using is the callus remover and a little bit of plastic wrap. And to answer the question, more so than a lotion, it is actually a callus remover which is sort of a, a liquid gel texture. So, what this does is you apply it and it literally will break down the callus so that you're able to then roll it off, either with a washcloth or a pedicure wand, whatever you choose. So, I'm going to just show you how that's done here. And one thing you want to be very careful of is, this is pretty potent stuff; I mean it is natural, but you want to make sure that you only put it on the callused areas. You don't want to put it on your, your skin that is not callused because it actually can give you sort of a little burn. So, be very careful. Use only what you need. So, I'm going to take a little bit here, just a little and I'm going to apply it to the heel. Okay. And the reason that we're using the wrap is because we don't want the remover, the callus remover getting on anything else; any furniture, any clothing. Okay. You put this on here, okay, you just wrap that there and with this, it acts very quickly. You want to let it sit maximum of about three minutes. You take off the wrap and then as I said, you're going to literally be able to roll away that callus with your exfoliator or your washcloth, whatever you want to use. Just make sure that when you're done, you rinse very well. So, that is the answer to the question of what lotion is used to remove calluses in the pedicure. And again, my name is Joi. Thanks for watching.
