Calluses, also called hyperkeratosis, is a thickening of the skin caused by the accumulation of dead and scaly skin. It can be visually identified by a yellowish color of the skin with an undefined shape, without delimited borders, and that is hard to the touch. It is estimated that 70% of Spaniards suffer from calluses at some point in their lives.
This increase in dead and scaly skin is the consequence of continued friction or pressure. It can be caused by various factors such as: wearing small or narrow shoes, some foot deformity, dehydration of the skin in this area, or the accumulation of dead cells under the nails.
Calluses caused by dehydration of the skin can be restored with hydration. For this purpose, the use of natural oils is recommended. Specifically, for this purpose, there is no better product than Cacay Oil due to its great power of hydration and skin regeneration.
Cacay Oil is probably the oil with the most vitamins (A, E, and F) in the world, in addition to its high content of squalene, its natural ingredients help with cell regeneration and recovery. Therefore, its use on the sole of the foot keeps it free of callused skin by increasing hydration, promoting blood flow, and skin softness.
How should the oil be applied?
Three to four drops of oil should be applied to the palm of the hand, and then carefully spread on the area affected by hard skin, making circular movements until the oil is completely absorbed. This process should be repeated preferably twice a day, morning and night, until the calluses are reduced.
The brand Arles Biocosmetics offers a wide variety of products, including Cacay Oil. Within their extensive catalog, we recommend our Natural Cacay Oil for the elimination of calluses on the feet.
