Bet you’ve been on the search for that illusive, albeit famous, “fountain of youth” since the big 3-0, right? You’re drinking the anti-aging Kool Aid-investing in every new face and eye cream, but have you considered all the ways in which your skin and body tell the world your age?
According to a study, published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise in 2004, the average woman walks 5,210 steps per day (that’s about 950 miles a year). That’s a lot of miles in a lifetime. So we’re willing to bet you don’t want any stranger on the street knowing just how may miles you’ve put on your peep-toe stilettos.
Enter Margaret Dabbs, renowned celebrity foot expert and fully trained podiatrist, who thinks it’s time you start paying more attention to those feet of yours. She says they age just like the rest of you-losing plushy fat and bone density, and revealing just how many years you’ve been treading around on them. This is one of the reasons she pioneered the “Medical Pedicure”, a non-invasive treatment that focuses on the soles of the feet and aesthetics of the toenails in her Foot Clinic & Nail Spas in the London high streets.
To supplement the pedicures? Dabbs created a line of foot care products that have recently made their way stateside via Space NK Apothecary. Products to note:
Superior Foot File ($39)
Designed using compressed crystal technology, this file removes hard skin from your feet. Time to get rid of those cracked heels.
Intensive Hydrating Lotion ($41)
Your regular body lotion can’t penetrate the thick skin of the feet, says Dabbs. That’s why she created this lotion with Emu Oil, which can effectively penetrate the dermal layers and moisturize your dry feet.
