How to control dry skin with Callus: 

Dry skin and callus /callous / hard skin are not the same thing but can co-exist.

Dry and cracked skin results from sweat glands of the feet aging and becoming less able to moisturise the skin naturally. Such natural lubricant loss leads to fragile skin that splits more easily.

Hard skin or callus occurs over areas of increases stress as a protective mechanism, and in a small amount is not an issue. In fact removing non-irritating hard skin/ callus can cause it to come back even faster. However if it’s painful it does need some help. See our callus skin creams for more on this problem.

However, dry skin can develop cracks can worsen callus because the skin becomes less supple and less capable of dealing with frictional stress between the foot and the contact surface. It’s important to stop cracks before they occur.

Dry skin with callus can be irritating and cause discomfort. By re-moisterising the skin effectively, mild callus is no longer an issue. Good moisturising also slows done the build up if it has just be reduced

The techniques above all work for dry skin and callus, but the following may also help:

  • If callus on forefoot, reduce the heel height of the shoe as much as possible
  • Use Gehwol Callus Cream first to reduce the callus before using Lipidrol to reduce the risk of the callus coming back or becoming a proble
  • Use an insole with arch and metatarsal support, like X-Lines for comfort shoes, NINE TO FIVE Everyday for pumps and work shoes, and NINE TO FIVE Heels for shoes over 1 ¼”.
  • Use a shoe with a cushioned sole for activities like walking. Trainers are really good option, but consider an X-Line PressurePerfect insole to replace the standard insock
  • Allow your toes the freedom to move correctly
  • Padded ToeToe® Socks such as 3D Terry Walker Socks can be helpful on walking or running with sensitive skin
