Okay so we have made the transition from winter shoes into summer sandals and flip flops. This is the moment where you realise your feet resemble pigs trotters with cracked skin all around the heel and pads of hard skin under the toes.
A certain amount of hard skin on the soles is not a bad thing as it protects your feet. It's when the hard skin starts to take on a dusty, white/grey colour and feels rough you need to act. When the hard skin starts to catch on socks or tights is always the final straw for us!
We have had our Scholl velvet smooth express pedi for months now. It's the sort of product you have laying in a bathroom drawer and forget how much you love it.
It's basically the lazy persons foot file. It doesn't do anything different to the good old fashioned foot file however it's quicker, easier and takes less effort. We all want that don't we?
It's a battery operated device (takes x4 AA Batteries) which has a rotating roller to remove the hard skin. The roller has no sharp edges and doesn't hurt or pull the skin and it doesn't tickle either. It's made from an abrasive sandpaper effect roller which has tiny diamond crystal particles embedded onto it.
Making sure your feet are totally dry when you start, switch it on and gently roll it over the dry, hard skin on the feet. If the feet are wet it's too hard to tell where the hard skin is. Ensure you keep it only over the hard skin and not any soft, squidgy skin. It won't cut or hurt the softer skin but it won't feel very comfortable. The hard skin will literally fly off into the air (gross) so we would advise sitting in the garden to do it or over the bath.
Be careful though as it does get really addictive. It's so satisfying seeing all the dry skin fly off that you can take it down too far. Just give it a gentle once over and see how it feels before you carry on.
Your feet will feel so soft and amazing!
Once your roller head starts to wear down (they last ages) you can purchase a new head to fit in your roller. There are also different levels of abrasive texture depending on how extreme your hard skin is.
You can purchase this from tons of suppliers so shop around online to get the best price but they are generally around £29.99.
