I was gifted an Essy Electric Foot Callus Remover foot file from a patient.
Dubious at first due to its small size and glittery gold. I was pleasantly surprised at how powerful it was compared to the hefty Scholl Velvet Smooth.
Don't get me wrong - both can deal with light callus pretty well.
But deep heel skin is a different story. In this electric foot file review, I discuss the pros and cons of each.
Well lookee here. This Dr. Scholl Velvet Smooth Foot File review dissects its pros and cons.
(Spoiler: the Essy Electric one is far better)
Now, I'm a bit biased because I use top-end Podiatry drills. In comparison, they're much more powerful. I can also use a scalpel.
I also use better cracked heel creams than Scholl's heel balm.
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!
Close-Up Foot Skin Removal With a Scalpel - Toe Pinch Callus and Heel Medi Ped
Yep, I'm back again.
In this video, I scalpel blade my annoying big toe pinch callus and scrape my hard heel skin away.
I always use good foot cream when blade scraping.
It allows me to feel for lumps and bumps and glide over the skin's surface.
(I use Gehwol Fusskraft Blue in this video)
Here I am again finishing off my notorious right heel with a scalpel, foot file and urea cream.
As I mentioned in my previous video, I get thicker callus here than on my left. It also comes back faster.
This happens because my right foot hits the ground harder than on my left.
Inside of my shoe, it gets churned and turned against the insoles I wear.
I find I always get a ridge of hard skin on the outside of my heel that's denser than the rest.
So it had to go!
It's that time (again) for my favorite dinner-table topic: thick yellow foot skin.
This one is all about pinch callus. That hard skin ridge that runs up the base of your painful pinky toe.
Or a mustard-colored clump on the side of your big toe.
Why do these areas attract pinch callus? Why do you get it?
(It means you've got a little toe that juts under — or a big toe that twists off to the side)
And how do you get rid of it? At least for a while.
Do you always get bad cracked heels in the winter?
Or have pale grey splits only appeared during this cold snap?
Ragged dry skin that catches your socks isn't just a warm-weather thing. The crisp frosty mornings can coincide with piercing heel pain and thick yellow callus.
Though often painful and unsightly, this condition is easily treated.
