5. Smooth Corns and Calluses Gently

If you have corns or calluses, check with your family doctor or podiatrist about the best way to care for them. If they tell you to, use a pumice stone to smooth corns and calluses after bathing. A pumice stone is a type of rock used to smooth the skin. Rub gently in only one direction to avoid tearing the skin. 

6. Trim Your Toe Nails Each Week

Trim your toenails with clippers after you wash and dry your feet. Trim toenails straight across and smooth them with a emery board or nail file. Don't cut the corners of the toenails. If you can't see well, if your toenails are thick or yellowed, or if your nails curve and grow into the skin, have your podiatrist trim them.
