When the body tries to defend itself from wounds, it creates a kind of armor to protect the skin. This way corns appear, which are nothing more than layers of dead cells superimposed where the skin is rubbed more than it should. Most of the time, we are confronted with the foot corns in the sole, which are unsightly and can affect our walking.
You probably didn’t know that you had remedies to get rid of corns, right in your own kitchen!
Among these, a very effective one is baking soda. To get rid of the dead cells and soften the skin, you need to take a warm foot bath with 3 tablespoons of baking soda. There is also the option of preparing a paste with which to soften your soles where corns appeared.
Mix 3 tablespoons of baking soda with 1 tablespoon of water and apply the paste over the affected areas by massaging gently.
Vinegar is a very handy cure. Soak a piece of cotton wool in the vinegar and apply it on the corn and leave it to act overnight. The next day use a pumice stone to remove the dead cells.
Lemon juice has proven to be very effective in treating foot corns. Along with aspirin, which contains salicylic acid, the beneficial effect is doubled.
Mix a spoon of lemon juice with 5 to 6 crushed aspirin tablets. Apply the paste on the corn, wrap your foot in a wrapping foil and wait 10 minutes for it to take effect. After you rinse the area, your skin will be sensitized enough to get rid of dead cells with a pumice stone.
