A pedipeel is an easy,treatment used at home to naturally exfoliate dry cracked skin from your feet. The single use package contains one pair of booties prefilled with a natural plant extract solution that causes the older, drier skin to painlessly peel away to reveal healthy supple skin. Ideal for adult women and men that have dry,cracked,tired feet. Foot-Peels remove the ugly-troublesome dead layers of skin that build up from everyday life. Human skin is composed of three layers - the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous fat. The epidermis contains keratinocytes. The outer most layer of epidermis (cornified layer) contains dead keratinocytes that build up and usually exfoliate naturally over time. This cornified layer normally protects the foot from the environment as well as maintaining a moisture balance. Sometimes, excessive keratinocytes build up in certain areas of the foot from such causes as prolonged standing, sports, and from ill-fitting shoes. The excessive buildup of keratin can cause calluses and may lead to discomfort and accumulation of skin layers that promote foot odor. The extra keratin can lead to dry hardened soles and unsightly, cracked heels. Before beaautifoot, it was very difficult to remove the dead skin layers without unnecessary trauma - there were very few options . scraping forcibly with a pumice or visiting a nail salon where a technician would forcicibliy scrape the skin with lightly sterilized tools - leading to risk of infection and bleeding. Beautifoot works by removing the dead layers of excessive skin in a natural and gentle fashion - Beautifoot contains a special combination of natural fruit acids that gently loosen the connections between the keratinocytes (desmosomes) and allow for a gradual, yet gentle exfoliation - free of pain or skin abrasions. Once proper skin turnover is reestablished, the keratinocytes can reestablish the moisture barrier and it is easier to maintain beautiful, smooth feet.
I was very skeptical about using this, as a friend had a very bad experience with another brand of foot peel. But I am going on vacation in a week, so I want my feet to look their best, and they were far from it!!! So I decided to give it a try. I followed the directions to the tee, put the bags on my feet, covered them with some socks to keep them in place, and went about my daily activities for 90 minutes. It felt really weird for the first 10 minutes or so, but after that I almost forgot that they were on! Then after the 90 minutes, I rinsed my feet with cool water and patted them dry. Now was the fun part, waiting to see if it would work.
It took about 3 days and it started to work. I will give you a hint, sweat and water makes it work faster, so wear socks and shoes, and it will make it start working faster. It peeled slowly at first and then it really took off. It looked kinda nasty as the skin was peeling, but my feet look much better and feel so much softer. I would highly recommend this, just remember that it takes at least a week or 10 days for the peel to complete, so keep that in mind when you start it.
I know feet are not very appealing to look at, but here is the process from start to the end product.
