[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Many of us in North India, are saying goodbye to winters, which actually translates you can’t hide behind layers of knits.
Winters are great for your feet since you get some acetate-free time. And as Spring lasts only for 15 days in Delhi, it’s a wise decision for most of us to get prepping for summer–including our feet.
Do it yourself, is not only big on Pinterest but amongst a lot of us too. If like me, you avoid too many salon trips, then you would be big on sloughing off dead skin off your skin for the oncoming Chappal season.
TAKE A LOOK
Take a look at Scholl’s Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Kit, Scholl is a pretty well known as a foot care/shoe brand across the world. It’s been brought to India by Reckitt Benkiser (yes, the Peeps who bring you Colgate and Harpic and what not, what they really like cleaning don’t they?). They even held an event in Delhi’s Le Meridien.

Anyway, so it’s pretty simple to use: it comes with a handy machine that you can fit into your palm as easily as an iPhone. It’s got a roller attached to it (and comes with batteries the first time you buy it), as well as a hand and nail cream.
So it’s no rocket science: there’s a silver button which helps the roller get….going. Use a simple forward motion GENTLY, covering your feet and heels as you go along. They have made sure you don’t go crazy buffing and put in protective gear in the roller head, but you too should stick to light or medium pressure.
Unlike DIY masks, this pedi kit is all about instant results.
You can pretty much see the dead skin cells falling off as you go along, making sure you’re squeaky clean too. P.S.: It may sound like a lawn mower, so if you have a partner that gets grossed easily, then you may not want to do this in front of him.
You can check out my video on Instagram to actually see the results for yourself. It took me about 15 minutes in total, so it’s great for weekly/bi-weekly usage.

The kit is complete with a foot and nail cream. Dust off dry skin, wipe it off with a small hand towel and apply this cream gently. Wear socks if you have to move around. The cream is pretty hydrating and I say that because I could feel the moisture 2-3 hours later (which doesn’t happen too often).
It costs Rs 2,850, which may be a bit steep for some, but think about the appointments you can skip. Or all those impromptu plans which can need some feet lovin’.
Of course, for filing, trimming and colouring your nails, or a feel good foot massage, you will have to hit the parlour, but the new Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Kit can prove to be a great addition to your grooming regime.
