Statement heels or summer sandals. Put your best foot forward…

Let’s be honest: feet are not the prettiest of fellows. But give them a small helping hand, and they can be so vastly improved that they’ll never let your new statement heels or summer sandals down again.

Here’s how beauty editors get theirs ship-shape. And trust and when we say, they’re a tough crowd to please.


Buff: As feet carry the burden of our bodily weight each and every day, it’s understandable that layers of hard, dead skin build up. Quick, effective and wallet-friendly, Pedisure is a new gadget features rollers that spin at 30 times per second to gently buff away dry and calloused skin.


Smooth: ELEMIS Treat Your Feet Cream has won countless awards for a reason: The decadently hydrating blend of Shea butter and jojoba oil not only slakes thirsty skin, bringing it a balmy, nourished radiance – but the aromatic scent of eucalyptus, lemon oil and patchouli has been specially curated to help calm the mind.


Perfect: Honeyed brown feet with an even skin tone immediately look better. Which is one reason why beauty editors love our ELEMIS Total Glow Self Tanning Body Cream. Use a mitt to buff a pea-sized amount over the tops of your feet where they’d naturally catch the sun – and don’t forget to whisk a face wipe between your toes and around your ankle bones to keep your colour nice and even.


Colour: When it comes to their colour wardrobe, Essie is second to none.
