Foot guru and po­di­a­trist Mar­garet

Dabbs shares her five rules for foot­care…

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

1 Al­ways, Al­ways file your feet when dry ‘That’s be­cause wa­ter masks the area to be treated, so you won’t be able to see the dry parts of the foot.’ 2 use A pumice foot scrub to ex­fo­li­ate soft parts of the feet ‘This gets rid of dull, grey skin cells in ar­eas that you can’t ad­dress with a foot file. Mas­sage the scrub all over the foot and rinse with wa­ter.’ 3 push back cu­ti­cles, never cut them ‘You never want to take away fresh tis­sue. If cu­ti­cles are frayed, ap­ply cu­ti­cle serum daily and push them back with an or­ange stick.’ 4 never use A body mois­turiser ‘Bear in mind that the skin of the feet is 12 times thicker than that of the rest of the body, which is why a body lo­tion isn’t enough.’ 5 book in for A pro treat­ment ‘In the run-up to your hol­i­day, aim to get a pro­fes­sional pedi­cure three months be­fore your trip. This makes it eas­ier to main­tain your feet at home’.
