Feet. A very neglected area, certainly on my body, and definitely during winter months they are pretty well left to look after themselves. It’s only when the shock of summer arrives that I panic and do some hardcore maintenance to get them looking half-way decent.
I was sent the Micro-Pedi a couple of weeks ago, and my goodness, it is a handy tool. I’m not normally a fan of beauty gadgets – only one or two have ever become grooming staples – but if your feet are on a walk of shame, the Micro-Pedi really is the thing. Actually, hard feet on skin isn’t just not all that pretty, it can be rather painful. And, once skin starts to crack then infections can follow. So, it pays to put the effort in and get rid of dry skin, then slather on the moisturiser. I generally don’t recommend any pricy moisturisers for this – basically, anything like Eucerin is great for feet, and best applied at night so you aren’t slipping about in your socks. Once a week should do it, but only you know how much love your feet actually need.
The Emjoi Micro-Pedi uses a spinning roller system with two different rollers – one coarse and one extra coarse, depending upon how much hard skin you have – and you literally just roll it over hard-skin areas and let it buff away the offending skin. It is really that simple. I don’t have a lot of hard skin on my feet, so I’ve tested it out on a couple of people who do (look away now, Mr BBB) and it does the job. Let’s face it, foot files are ultra-tedious. Micro-Pedi is £29.99 at Boots http://www.boots.com/en/Emjoi-Micro-Pedi-rapid-hard-skin-remover_1245237/?cm_mmc_o=-uubkbzfwlCjCKww5kbELCjCvi%20i9%20niioCjCC
