How to Use a Pumice Stone

Skin problems are increasing all over the world. Everyone has some kind of issue related with his or her skin, a part of the blame lies with our busy schedules and our inability to take time out.

One of the more common issues is the drying and cracking of our feet. The winter beats down on them and they look a bit like a war zone. We do, however, have a remedy in the shape of a pumice stone. It is a solid piece of volcanic glass and it is just what we need for those cracking heels of ours.

    Moisturise

    Once you are done with the pumice stone work, moisturise your feet by putting some skin care lotion on them. You can have one of those that are specifically made for feet as they will work better. Put on some soft socks so that you do not spread the lotion around and to protect the feet. Have a nice little nap if you feel like it.
