How to Use a LOVE PUMICE Stone

Pumice is formed when hot lava mixes with water and hardens, resulting in a porous material perfect for sloughing away dry skin. The stone provides an abrasive surface that gently smooths the skin without scratching. Next time your heels or elbows are dry and cracked, exfoliate them with a pumice stone for soft, healthy-looking results.


Follow these 7 easy steps to use LOVE PUMICE® Stone to exfoliate your skin:


Step 1: Soak your calloused skin in warm water

The most common part of the body to exfoliate with a pumice stone is the feet. Heels tend to develop a layer of hard, calloused skin that can become cracked or scaled. Your elbows are another area that may benefit from exfoliation. Soak the calloused body part in warm water for about five minutes to soften the skin.
If you’re working on your feet, you may want to fill a bowl with warm water and soak your feet in the bowl.
For other parts of the body, pumicing as part of your shower may be easiest.

Step 2: Wait until your dry skin has softened

The skin will be easier to remove if it’s soft and supple. Feel your skin after several minutes of soaking. If it still feels tough, wait a few more minutes (giving the water a warm-up if necessary). If it’s soft, your skin is ready for the pumice stone.

Step 3: Wet the stone

Wetting the stone will help it slide more easily across your skin, rather than catching on it. Run the stone under warm water, or dip it in the water where you’re soaking your skin, in order to thoroughly wet it.

Step 4: Rub the purple side gently over the calloused area

Use a circular motion to start sloughing away the dead skin with the pumice stone using the rough purple side. If the skin is nice and soft, it should start coming right off. Keep going until you remove the dead skin and get to the fresh, supple skin underneath. The grooved surface will help collate and dispense the dead skin so you can remove as much callous skin as possible without having to clean and remove excess skin build-up.

  • Don’t press too hard. Light pressure is all that is needed; let the surface of the stone do the work.
  • If you’re working on your feet, focus on the heels, the sides of your toes, and other areas where dry skin tends to build up.
Step 5: Rinse and repeat

Rinse off the dead skin and take a look to see if you need to keep going. If you still see bits of dead skin, go over the area again with the pumice stone. Continue using the stone on the area until you’re satisfied with the results.

  • Since the pumice stone will wear down slightly while you use it, you may need to turn it over to get a fresh surface you can use to exfoliate your skin.
  • Rinse the pumice stone often to keep its surface clean and effective.
Step 6: Rub the smooth side

Once all the dead skin has been removed use the smooth side to soften the skin by working it in a circular motion.

Step 7: Dry and moisturize your skin

When you’re finished, use a towel to pat your skin dry. Coat the area with an oil or cream to prevent it from drying out too quickly. Your formerly calloused skin should now be soft, supple and gleaming.

  • Coconut oil, almond oil, or body lotion are all fine to use to condition your skin after pumicing.
  • Repeat as often as needed to keep your skin in good shape.
