Cornea removal - Which method do you use to get your feet baby soft?
The hot trends 2020 - hiking and walking in nature! Since the summer holidays are probably not going to be a big success this year and numerous leisure activities, such as amusement parks and swimming pool visits, are probably not possible this year, we are driven by nature. We are walking more and more and therefore our feet are put under much more strain than usual. The increased friction quickly causes excess calluses on the feet. In this article you will learn how to get rid of it quickly.
Why does cornea actually develop on the feet?
However, before we go into detail about the individual methods of corneal removal, it is important to understand how corneas are formed in the first place. Corneas form on our feet 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 strained by pressure or friction, more calluses are formed. This can happen if we walk regularly. But also badly fitting shoes, high heels, malpositions and overweight can promote increased callus formation.
Why should you remove excess cornea regularly?
But if the cornea on our feet wants to protect us - why should we remove it? Well, the problem with the calluses is, simply put, that our body does not recognize when enough calluses have formed on the feet. So corneal formation can have a benefit in the beginning. In the long run, however, the excess cornea can have negative consequences.
Because excessive cornification is not just an aesthetic problem. The cornea 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 cornea be removed?
It is therefore recommended to remove excess cornea and to pay attention to regular moisturizing. But how often should you remove calluses to keep your feet soft and healthy? How often cornea removal is necessary depends strongly on the method used.
Sharp and rough tools, for example, often injure the skin and can quickly lead to new cornifications. However, as the skin is subject to heavy strain, you should use such methods at most every 14 days. Mr. Fuss' gentle cornea remover solution, on the other hand, reduces the growth of new calluses. Initially you can use the solution once a week without hesitation. In this way you can remove severe calluses without damaging the lower layers of the skin. After three to five applications, you will already see significant results, and occasional removal is sufficient.
Which methods can be used to remove the cornea at home?
Now, however, there are numerous methods you can use to remove your cornea. To give you a rough overview, you will find the advantages and disadvantages of different techniques below.
Dead skin removal with pumice stone
The pumice stone is a natural volcanic rock, which was already used in ancient times for cornea removal. In addition to foot care, it is used in horticulture or to remove paint in the manufacture of jeans.
Compared to many other methods, pumice removes the cornea relatively gently. In order to achieve visible results, it is therefore recommended to take a foot bath before application. The feet must then be thoroughly dried so that the cornea can be removed more easily.
The Dead skin removal with pumice stone is however a lengthy process that is more suitable for light cornifications. In addition, the friction causes a rough and brittle skin surface. In order to reduce the growth of new calluses, a rich moisturizing treatment is essential. In addition, the scraped skin cells accumulate in the pores of the volcanic stone, making it a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. If you want to use pumice stone, be sure to wash it carefully after each use, change it regularly and never share it with other people in your household.
The corneal sponge
The corneal sponge behaves similarly to pumice stone. Usually the sponges consist of pressed mussel shells. However, especially cheap models contain plastic (polyurethane). As the sponge wears down, you contribute to the release of microplastics into the sewage and thus into the environment.
Remove cornea with the file
The corneal file is also often used to remove corneas. It removes even severe cornifications and thus offers a high degree of effectiveness. However, the risk of injury is also particularly high. Especially filing dry feet can quickly backfire. Often necessary skin layers are also damaged. Painful cracks and inflammations develop. In addition, an even result cannot usually be achieved. If you want to use a callus file, carefully remove the callus with the rough side. Then use the fine side to flatten the unevenness a little. We do not recommend this method.
You use the file with the latest technology: The Lasercut ground friction surfaces. This is both effective and comparably gentle.
Why ordinary planes and rasps do not belong on the feet
Also the Corneal plane and the Rasp are in our opinion better kept in a tool box than in a cosmetics cabinet. The probability that you do more harm than good to your feet with these methods is high. In most cases, the result is very uneven and healthy skin layers are damaged.
What do cornea remover creams and corneal patches do?
Cornea remover creams and patches are designed to remove the cornea simply by contact with appropriate active ingredients. In our opinion, however, they are rather a strong moisturizing care. Accordingly, they are certainly helpful as a preventive measure. Even plasters can certainly have a soothing effect in problematic areas. But can the cornea really simply dissolve into nothing?
Cornea Remover Socks
Relatively new on the market are the cornea remover socks. They work similar to a peeling. Mostly salicylic acid and fruit acids are used, which are supposed to promote the peeling process of dead skin cells. The socks should be worn for about two to three hours. However, an immediate effect is not to be expected.
It should take about 14 days for the cornea to detach. During wearing, skin irritation can occur due to the acids used. After the process is completed, the feet are usually very sensitive. Walks and direct sunlight should be avoided during this week.
The Mr. Foot Cornea Remover Solution
Mr. Fuss' cornea remover solution offers a new approach to corneal removal. With some special cotton wool you apply a keratolytic solution to the affected areas. After you let the corneal remover solution work for a few minutes, the consistency of your cornea will remind you of jelly. With the blunt cornea remover tool you can now gently push away the excess cornea. You will see strong results immediately after application. And after five applications at the latest, your feet should be soft and supple.
What makes the cornea remover solution from Mr.Fuss unique?
As Mr. Fuss' cornea remover solution only softens the dead skin cells, the healthy skin layers are not affected. Mr. Fuss also dispenses completely with rough and sharp tools. You simply gently push the excess callus aside. In this way, no injuries, cracks or rough spots are caused. Hours of effort are also a thing of the past. After a few simple steps and a short application time, you will see an immediate effect. Our individual aftercare products round off the cornea removal. Our anti-wax system reduces the formation of new calluses so that your feet remain soft for a particularly long time.
Before you go: Don't forget the right care!
Whichever method you use, you should always apply a rich moisturizer after you have removed the callus. Especially care products with urea, propolis or evening primrose oil provide a rich supply of moisture and also inhibit the growth of new calluses.
Cornea develops when dry skin is exposed to friction or pressure. The formation of calluses is said to make the foot less sensitive and reduce moisture loss. However, the body does not know when our feet are equipped with sufficient calluses. It happily forms more and more calluses, which are not always just a cosmetic problem. This is because the excess callus can be disturbing, dry out and even lead to pain and deep chapped skin. To prevent painful consequences, the cornea should be removed regularly.
A wide variety of methods are advertised on the market. All these methods have their advantages and disadvantages. With some methods, you will get rid of your cornea quickly - albeit at short notice and possibly even with painful injuries. Other methods offer gentler variants, which, however, require an immense amount of time in the case of severe corneal growths or just dubious results. The Mr. Fuss cornea remover solution would like to offer you an alternative. With the keratolytic solution, the cornea is softened and gently removed. Within a few minutes you will see results and our anti-wax system ensures that your feet remain soft and free of calluses for a long time.
Whichever method you choose - you should not do without a rich foot care. After you have removed the calluses, your feet need moisture. This is how you can counteract cracking and drying of the skin.
