Lava Pumice Stone
This pumice stone is larger (fits in palm of hand) and is more porous than the Foot shaped pumice stone
A pumice stone is formed when lava and water mix together. It’s a light-yet-abrasive stone used to remove dry, dead skin. A pumice stone can also soften your calluses and corns.
You can use this stone daily, but it’s important to know how to properly use it. If you’re not careful, you can remove too much skin, cause bleeding, or increase your risk of infection.
Size: 4in x 3in x 1.75in on a thick cotton rope
How to Use
- Soak in a nice warm bath (or foot bath) for 5-10 minutes to soften the skin.
- Soak the pumice in warm water as well. Never use a dry pumice on your skin.
- Rub the pumice stone over your skin in a circular motion with light pressure.
- If your skin begins to feel sensitive or sore, stop immediately because you’re most likely using too much pressure.
- After two to three minutes of light rubbing, rinse your skin. If you still see patches of dead skin, repeat this process.
- You may follow with a Foot File to smooth the skin
- Apply a moisturizer or oil to your skin to maintain moisture and keep your skin soft.
- Repeat daily or a few times a week to maintain soft, supple skin.
Keeping your Pumice Stone Clean
- Clean your pumice stone after every use.
- Under running water, use a bristle brush to scrub dead skin off of the stone. Apply a small amount of soap to make sure it’s clean and free of any dirt. Bacteria can grow on the surface.
- Do not share your pumice with other people.
- Allow the stone to dry on its own. Set it in a dry area away from moisture to prevent bacteria growth.
- For deep cleaning, boil your pumice stone in hot water for five minutes. Allow it to air dry away from damp areas.
- Your stone will wear down over time, becoming too smooth to remain effective. If your stone becomes too small, smooth, or soft, replace it.
