So, yeah, itâ€™s a pretty gross thought: scraping your heels like youâ€™re grating a lemon in the name of beauty. And collecting the sloughed-off skin in a plastic shell, which you discreetly dump in the trash when itâ€™s all done? Shudder. But, yes, oh, yes, the Ped Egg — you know, the one youâ€™ve seen advertised on TV about a zillion times — really does work. Your heels will be smooth, your unsightly calluses rubbed away, and you wonâ€™t be the bit embarrassed to start sporting your strappy sandals, flipflops or mules.
The Ped Egg is essentially a foot file that removes dead skin. Simply rub the areas that are uber-dry (thank you Colorado air!), add some lotion, and feel free to skip the pedicure this week. And donâ€™t be disturbed when the men in your house ask to give it a try. The $10 gets you two eggs, so you donâ€™t even have to share.
