Our new volcanic rock pumice stone and how to use it.
A little while ago we asked for your help on Facebook what you would prefer; the pumice stone that we sold up to now with a low price but not 100% natural or an all natural pumice stone made from lava rock. We listened to you and your wish has clearly been the all natural one, so that’s what we have now.
This pumice stone is no more or less then a block of lightweight, hardened lava foamy stone. It can be used to rub off dry skin and dead skin cells, mostly from the feet, elbows or knees. As for our feet it is not only that they will look better but it also relieves discomfort caused by calluses. Use a pumice stone gently and be patient but persistent. A heavy buildup of hard, leathery skin may require several treatments.
Fill a tub that is big enough to hold your feet with warm water. For best results make it soapy with one of our natural soapbars or put some bath salt in it. Then soak your feet for five to 10 minutes to soften the skin.
Dip the pumice stone in the warm water, then use the wet stone to rub areas of rough skin gently for two to three minutes. Use light pressure and circular motions to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells. Stop immediately if your skin feels sensitive or sore..
Rinse the area thoroughly, then pat your skin dry with a soft towel. Don't rub because the freshly pumiced skin may be sensitive.
Massage a moisturizer like our body butter into the just-treated areas to return moisture to the skin.
Rinse the pumice stone in clear water, then store it in a dry location until the next time you use it.
Warning!: Don't use a pumice stone on sore, red areas or open skin. Never attempt to remove hardened skin or calluses with metal tools, razor blades or steel wool.
