The Manly Pedi

By: Sharp Staff|April 30, 2015
Tagged With: Grooming




Sure, you could just shower—rubbing your feet with an exfoliating scrub like Jack Black’s Body Rehab ($40)—but there’s something delightfully old-timey about sitting with your feet in a tub, pants rolled up, tie loosened. The point is, you want to soften the hardened skin and callouses, so you might as well get something out of it.


Let’s be clear: Urea—one of, if not the best moisturizing ingredients for cracked feet—does in fact come from urine. Well, it’s found in urine. But, for our purposes it breaks down scaly skin at the cellular level. It’s odourless, non-toxic, and can be synthesized without, you know, pee. Look for creams with at least 10% urea. Try Eucerin Complete Repair Lotion ($20)


There are fancy electronic gizmos that claim to offer the pedicure experience at home (some are even helpfully marketed to men), but a classic pumice stone—like this one from Kaufman Mercantile ($13)—works just as well. There is nothing not manly about scoring away dead skin with volcanic rock.


Finish with a shot of Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet talcum powder ($35). It will keep your feet soft and absorb excess moisture. Imagine taking off your socks at the end of the day and it being a good thing.
