I don’t know about you, but by the end of the working week, after I’ve worn heels for 5 days straight, my poor little feet are in pretty bad shape. At the first chance I get, the shoes come off and my express pedi station is prepared for an immediate tootsie treatment…I mean let’s be honest, swollen feet have never been a good look.
Not one to enjoy a stranger touching my feet, I much prefer to give myself a pedicure and with Scholl’s Velvet Smooth Express Pedi, its super easy and not to mention, affordable! (Always a bonus!)
To start with, I run my Express Pedi Roller over any dry or cracked skin seen on my heels, the balls of the foot and around my toes. Applying a light pressure, the electronic file buffs away dried skin cells, involving minimal energy on my behalf! The great thing about the technology seen in the Velvet Smooth Express Pedi, is that the file contains synthetic diamonds which helps to exfoliate stubborn dry skin while remaining pain free! Afterward, my feet feel soft and dainty..like a lady’s foot should!
My number one pet peeve when it comes to feet, is seeing chipped or outgrown toenail polish. There’s no excuses girls, it’s not hard labour, it’s simple grooming. I remove residue polish with my Kester Black Nail Polish Remover, as its water based, enriched with vitamin e and aloe vera, which means my nails aren’t stripped of their natural moisture. Not to mention it has a lovely subtle white peach fragrance, which is a pleasant change to the strong odours of supermarket nail polish removers.
After painting two thin coats of either one of my two favourite OPI shades, Pink-ing Of You or Penny For Your Thoughts, I apply my Scholl Eulactol Heel Balm Gold while waiting for my toes to dry. This non-greasy balm is literally gold as it conditions and restores skin to its hydrated, moisturised state. Once winter arrives, I’ll be using my Heel Balm twice a day and after applying before bedtime, I’ll pop on warm, wooly socks to keep my feet soft and silky.
Treat yourself to a DIY pedicure with Scholl’s Velvet Smooth Express Pedi and Eulactol Heal Balm Gold and tiptoe your way to beautiful feet!
