Hey, everybody. I'm Kelly West, your Beauty and Lifestyle Expert; you know, I'm also a Licensed Medical Aesthetician and in my office, I do a lot of really expensive treatments. So, I like to every once in awhile show my patients how to do some of those treatments at home, which is what I'm going to do for you today. One of the biggest issues that people come to me for are calluses. So, if you get calluses on your hands, calluses on your feet, this is a great home remedy for that. The best thing to do especially for the feet is to do about a 20 minute foot soak. So, I'm going to show you quickly how to do that. You just heat up some water; get yourself a nice bowl like this one. If you also just have like a big Tupperware bowl, that works too. Fill it with the warm water and then, you want to add a big scoop of Epsom salts. Okay. So, just like this, a little sprinkle around and then, to help with peeling off the skin, apple cider vinegar. The vinegar in the apple cider vinegar helps to eat away all the dead skin. So, you just do few little drops of that and then, a gentle cleanser. I give it just one big squeeze and there you go. And you just want to mix all these up and then stick your feet in here and soak for about 20 minutes. This is a great thing to do when you're sitting around and watching TV, all those crazy housewives. Just put it in there for 20 minutes. When you take your feet out, those calluses they're going to be nice and soft. Now, if have really stubborn ones that need a little extra attention, you can also use a loofah or a pumice brush and just give it a nice good brushing off; they'll start to fall off. An additional treatment too that you can do from what you have at home, just regular raw cane sugar and and a little bit of Vaseline. This is a great way to give an extra exfoliation to those calluses and it really is as simple as just placing a little bit on the skin, adding a little bit of the sugar and then just rubbing it in. Again, giving it a nice deep exfoliation. The great thing about this too is that you can then spread this mixture all over your feet, all over your hands. You can put on gloves or socks and sleep in that if you want. You take that off, rinse off your feet, rinse off your hands and they'll be baby smooth, super soft. A couple of other options for additional hydration, you can add a little bit of hyaluronic acid, if you keep this in your bathroom for skincare, put that on your heels, on the calluses under your hands. Also, if you have Vitamin E tablets laying around. You can simply take scissors, cut a tablet open, it's pure Vitamin E and then just spread it all over those calluses. Again, let it sit for a little bit so it helps to really moisturize and soften those calluses. It's a great way to fix things. And then, you always want to finish stuff up with a nice body lotion. You're going to have smooth, soft, callus-free hands and feet. So, again you guys, I'm Kelley West for eHow.com. I'll see you next time.
