Care for Calluses

All runners get calluses. They aren't anything to worry about, but they can be unsightly

Some callus care tips:

-File your feet: Buy one of those foot files from a pharmacy, or get a fancier one from a beauty supply store. File your calluses when your feet are dry, maybe before bed or before a shower.

-Use bandaids as needed: Sometimes a callus develops in the aftermath of a blister. If you have a blister on your foot, keep it covered with a band aid until it bursts, and then until it starts to dry up. If it eventually forms a callus, see the previous tip about filing.
