For 33 years I've MISSED my Dutch Certified Podologist or in other terms a Certified Master Pedicurist.
Not to be mistaken by 'a pedicure' as that is by far not the same!
The NORTH AMERICAN SCHOOL OF PODOLOGY is in Toronto, Canada. Just click on the pink hyperlink.
You can also find them on Facebook: NASP.
The usual Pedicures could lead to dangerous infections as you can read following this link.
Especially for retired, older people or people with diabetes there is a risk for infection.
My right foot has been injured when a horse that I just had been riding, stepped on my toes.
Very painful and the big toe's nail was loose and black.
It still is not a normal toenail...
So I would LOVE to go to a Certified Podologist but my nearest is 234.8 km away!
One way that is a 3 hour drive.
For decades I've been using the buffing tool that you see under my Chanel toilet bag. I had it already back in The Netherlands and it runs on batteries.
Also different types of Diamancel (click the hyperlink) Files that I purchased at Neiman Marcus, decades ago...
Diamancel Diamond File for Foot Calluses #20, I seldom used, my husband did use it more often.
My choice is the Diamancel Diamond Foot Buffer #11 (the black one at the top in 1st and 2nd photo) and that gives you silky smooth heels or as I use them also, under my big toe and below.
For smoothing the skin where you removed some callus around toes or fingers, Diamancel File #5 is perfect!
So together with my Mehaz tools, that's how I care for my feet.
These are the other tools that I use.
Top is a 24k gold plated scissor from Toledo, Spain.
A rather course tweezer for pulling up any loose parts after carefully cleaning around nail with my pointed scissor. I do start out with a foot soak to soften up my feet.
My MehazProfessional Cuticle Pusher and Straight Spoon, made in Germany.
My Mehaz professional stainless steel nail clipper. Similar with two springs here: Mehaz Professional Corner Nipper (click on the pink hyperlinks to see info).
Using some body lotion makes them feel baby soft and sandal ready for summer!
