Pumice is created when hot lava cools so quickly that the process traps gas bubbles in the hardening material, resulting in a porous and abrasive stone perfect for sloughing away dry skin.
To use a pumice stone, soften the calloused skin in warm water, wet the stone, then gently rub the stone over the area using circular motions until you remove the dead skin. In addition to its primary purpose exfoliating skin, you can also use pumice to remove hair
