You can cause painful ingrown toenails if you wear shoes that are the wrong size. And if you don't keep your nails trimmed, you could risk infection by irritating your nail beds.

8. To get rid of calluses and corns, make a microplane your friend.

This slightly terrifying looking tool can slough off dead skin from the bottoms of your callused, beat up feet in a flash. Get it here.

10. Or give the Pedi-Rock a go.

The Pedi-Rock works similarly to the microplane, in that it sloughs off dead skin and calluses, but it also conforms to the shape of your foot, and you can use it when it's wet or dry. Get it here. And when you're done, slather on a lactic acid-rich cream like AmLactin to seal in moisture.

19. Keep your pedicure tools to yourself.

Sharing your pedicure tools with friends or family increases your chances of spreading and sharing nasty foot funguses and diseases. Be a friend and be selfish with your nail stuff.
