In this foot skin shaving video, I went in dry. So to speak.
In other words, I went straight scalpel to skin. Without foot cream on first (my preferred method).
As I've said before, dry heel skin scalpel removal makes bigger chunks of skin fly off (great for video if you're into that sort of thing).
The downside: it's a lot easier to take too much off or get an uneven finish.
The type of scalpel planing blade I use is a Number 10.
Foot cream I used was Gehwol Fusskraft Blue. The foot file I recommend.
After a summer full of hiking, look what we have here.
A corn right on the back of my heel.
You can stop this before you have to cut it out. If you find yourself with one, do the following:
Apply Gehwol Fusskraft Blue over several days. A big healthy thumb full and let it sit each night undisturbed.
After about three days, do the above and grab a trusty foot file, like this one.
Nimbly file away until the rough yellow stuff goes — and before the bleeding starts!
Well lookee here. This Dr. Scholl Velvet Smooth Foot File review dissects its pros and cons.
Now, I'm a bit biased because I use top-end Podiatry drills.
(I also use better cracked heel creams than Scholl's heel balm)
In comparison, they're much more powerful. I can also use a scalpel.
But, I also have an expert understanding. I know what it takes to really rasp away ugly heel skin.
So, without further ado, let's get stuck into this review of the Scholl Velvet Smooth electric file!
