The use of a Footfile is a must year-round, and especially for the open-toed sandals of summertime. A footfile looks like sandpaper on a stick, but a footfile treats feet more than fairly. There are different kinds of footfiles, some are used wet and others used dry. Dry footfiles can be used daily as they are usually softer and less intense. Wet one's should be used with a foot scrub to remove dead skin cells and rough patches. Both should be followed with an intense foot creme to restore dehydration.
