How to Correctly Use a Pumice Stone

By Jayzee A

Walking, running and even standing up can take a toll on your feet. Many people develop calluses, corns and a layer of dead skin on their feet. As a result, feet are often rough to the touch and unattractive. A pumice stone is a small tool used to gently rub away the dead skin, corns and calluses found on your feet. Using a pumice stone properly is important. Improperly using a pumice stone can result in bleeding or infection.
