What is a callus?

Calluses are a small area of thickened skin caused by friction, pressure or other physical or chemical irritations. A callus forms when mild but repeated injuries cause the cells of the epidermis to become more active, which causes an increase in tissue production. This results in a hardened, thick patch of dead skin cells at the surface layer of your skin. Fun Fact: This thickening process is called hyperkeratosis. Calluses are typically seen on the heel, the underside/side of the big toe area or on the balls of your feet. 


What is the cause of these calluses? 

There is a plethora of factors that could lead to the development of a callus such as:

  • Poorly fitted footwear
  • Walking barefoot
  • Wearing high heels
  • Thin socks or socks with seams by the toes
  • Prolonged standing or repetitive activity (athletic or manual labour)

Foot Care Tips:

  1. It is extremely important to alternate between shoes, allowing each pair to have time to air out. Doing this can prevent fungus and bacteria invading the shoes, which can be linked to athletes' feet. 
  2. Washing your feet, thoroughly drying and following with a moisturizer will aid in softening the skin. It is important to check your feet on a regular basis and keep them moisturized. 

By following the basics of proper foot care and using Spa Science’s VIVA pedicure tool, your feet will be thanking you.
