Vaseline is a super affordable way to soften callused skin. "It’s a sealant," explains Emily Splichal, DPM, a New York City-based podiatrist. "When you take a bath or shower, your skin absorbs all the water and moisture. Vaseline helps lock all that in so it stays within the skin." Apply it to a callus immediately after bathing, then cover the area with plastic wrap overnight to seal in moisture and nix rough skin.

To treat calluses and massage your feet at the same time, try using a pumice stone. "These are better than the blades they use in nail salons because the chance of cutting yourself is much lower," explains Dr. Splichal. In addition to applying topical treatments like creams or ointments nightly, Dr. Splichal encourages patients to use "mechanical debridement" tools like the Ped Egg foot file on calluses one to two times per week to remove coarse skin on the foot.
