How you can quickly get rid of them, you will learn in this article.

Why actually arises dead skin on the feet?

However, before we go into the individual methods of dead skin removal go into detail, it is important to understand how dead skin is formed in the first place. On our feet is formed dead skin, to protect the skin from injuries and external influences, such as stones or branches, as well as fluid loss. If we do not care for our feet sufficiently, the skin becomes dry and cracked. If our feet are now stressed by pressure or friction, increased dead skin. This can happen if we walk regularly. But also badly fitting shoes, high heels, malpositions and overweight, can cause an increased callus formation favor.

Why should you remove excess dead skin regularly?

But if the dead skin on the feet wants to protect us - why should we remove them? Well, the problem with the dead skin is, simply put, that our body doesn't recognize when sufficient dead skin has formed on the feet. So the callus formation initially show a benefit. In the long run, the excess dead skin however, can have negative consequences.

This is because excessive cornification is not merely an aesthetic problem. The dead skin skin can dry out and contract. This in turn can have painful effects. Cracks and fissures can develop that penetrate into the lower layers of the skin. This can really hurt and drastically restrict our mobility.

How often should the dead skin be removed?

Therefore it is recommended to remove excess dead skin and to pay attention to regular moisturizing. But how often should you dead skin remove to keep the feet soft and healthy? How often a removal of the dead skin necessary depends largely on the method used.


Sharp and rough tools, for example, often injure the skin and can thus cause new cornification to form quickly. However, since the skin is heavily stressed, you should use such methods at most every 14 days. The gentle hard skin remover-solution from Mr. Fuss on the other hand reduces the growth of new dead skin. Initially, you can use the solution once a week without hesitation.

dead skin removal With the pumice stone

The pumice stone is a natural volcanic rock, which was already used in antiquity for the dead skin removal was used for foot care. In addition to foot care, it is used in horticulture or to remove the color in the manufacture of jeans.

Compared to many other methods, the pumice stone the dead skin relatively gently. Therefore, to achieve visible results, a foot bath is recommended before the treatment recommended. Afterwards, the feet must be thoroughly dried so that the dead skin can be better removed.

The dead skin removal with the pumice stone however, is a lengthy procedure that is more suitable for light calluses. In addition, the friction makes for a rough and brittle skin surface. To prevent the growth of new dead skin a rich moisturizing care is essential. In addition, the scraped skin cells collect in the pores of the volcanic stone, making it a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. If you have a pumice stone used, be sure to wash it after every treatment change it regularly and never share it with other people in your household.

The corneal sponge

The cornea sponge is similar to the pumice stone. Mostly the sponges consist of pressed mussel shells. However, especially inexpensive models contain plastic (polyurethane). With the wear of the sponge you contribute to the fact that microplastic gets into the waste water and thus into the environment.

dead skin Remove with the file

The callus file is also often used to remove dead skin used. It removes even strong cornification and thus offers high effectiveness. However, the risk of injury is also particularly high. Especially the filing of dry feet can quickly backfire. Often, necessary skin layers are also damaged. Painful cracks and inflammations occur. In addition, an even result can usually not be achieved. If you want to use a callus file, wear the dead skin carefully with the coarse side. Then use the fine side to flatten out the bumps. However, we do not recommend this method.


You use the file with the latest technology: the lasercut ground friction surfaces. This is effective and comparably gentle at the same time.

What effect hard skin remover-Creams and callus patches?

Plasters can also certainly have a soothing effect on problematic areas. However, the dead skin actually simply dissolve into nothing?

Callus Remover Socks

Relatively new on the market are callus remover socks. They work similarly to a peeling. Mostly salicylic acid and fruit acids are used, which are supposed to promote the removal process of dead skin cells. The socks should be worn for about two to three hours. However, an immediate effect is not expected.

It should take about 14 days for the dead skin has dissolved. During wearing, due to the acids used, skin irritation may occur. After the process is completed, the feet are usually very sensitive. Walks and direct sunlight should be avoided during this week.

The Mr. Fuss hard skin remover-solution

dead skin develops when dry skin is exposed to friction or pressure. The formation of dead skin is supposed to make the foot less sensitive and reduce moisture loss. However, the body does not know when our feet with sufficient dead skin are sufficiently equipped. It cheerfully forms more and more cornification, which is not always merely a cosmetic problem.
