At the moment, there are a variety of options if you’re looking for a foot exfoliator. Each with the same intended purpose, to remove the dead and dry skin that slowly accumulates on your feet over time.
Three of the most popular foot exfoliators people use to get rid of the thick, dead skin on their feet are pumice stone, at-home foot scrubs, and exfoliation foot peels. As a result, we thought it would be worthwhile to explore which is the best.
Pumice Stone for Feet
One of the most commonly used foot exfoliants is pumice stone. Simply rub the stone over your feet, removing the top layer of dead and dry skin.
That being said, you mustn’t rub too hard. Often people find that their feet are raw, red, and painful after rubbing them with a pumice stone. As a result, this might not be the best option for those with sensitive skin on their feet.
DIY Exfoliating Foot Scrub
Using sugar or Epsom salt alongside lotion or other oil-based products, you can mix your very own foot scrub within the comfort of your own home. Simply rub your feet in the foot scrub mixture to remove the dead skin on your feet.
Despite how easy it is to make your own foot scrub at home, its effectiveness is, at times, less than ideal. As an example, the salt or sugar often dissolves before the scrub begins to work. Lastly, it can be difficult to get to the dead skin around your toes, which means there’s most likely going to be some dead skin left.
Do Foot Peels Work
Exfoliating foot peels use a mixture of natural ingredients, including fruit acids and extracts that are kind to the skin on your feet. However, this doesn’t mean that they’re any less effective in removing the dead skin on your feet. In fact, because foot peels soak the entirety of your foot in their formula, it takes care of every place you may have dead or dry skin.
