Having lovely feet is a beauty priority for many, especially on occasions of sandal wearing or being barefoot by the ocean or pool. Dry, dead skin accumulation on the soles and heels of the feet is a normal occurrence, albeit an unattractive one. Left unattended, areas of dead skin can result in unseemly calluses. On WebMD.com, a foot callus is explained as hard, dead skin that forms to protect sensitive areas of the skin from a point of constant friction. Keep your feet looking nice with a few simple steps anyone can do at home.

    Gently rub the foot pumice stone on the skin of the feet while they are in the water to exfoliate dead skin. Rub longer on the areas of the heel and soles where calluses or harder layers of skin are. If you prefer a foot file to exfoliate, dry the feet before rubbing the file on the skin.
