But one woman has claimed her feet have “never been the same” after soaking her feet in the special formula, according to Tyla, and she’s not the only one.
The product works by soaking the feet in a formula via slip-on boots and after around seven to 10 days, the feet begin shedding their dead cells.
But for Ashley Mills, 27, from Plymouth the peeling reportedly continued for four to five weeks and it made her feet “really sore.”
“It makes your feet peel continuously for four to five weeks to the point where the skin peels back too far and makes your feet really sore. Every time you shower or get your feet wet it peels again,” she told Tyla.
She said it was “super gross” taking socks off and having “half your skin peel off” too.
Dr Ana, an aesthetic doctor at Kat & Co told the publication that foot peels are generally “safe” but warns people should “proceed with caution”.
This is because “the peeling action itself indicated an element of inflammation taking place.”
People using them should “follow the instructions on the label so the acids aren’t left on the skin for too long” and you should “stay off your feet while the peeling is taking place”.
The foot peels work by “applying acids to the skin which break the bonds between cells in the upper layer of the skin.”
Moisturising ingredients are often added to the formula which increases the level of hydration to give you that “silky smooth” feeling.
But the doctor warns that it’s important to ensure the ingredients are “gentle enough not to cause damage to the skin” to avoid “irritation and sensitivity.”
She added that ingredients such as tea tree or peppermint extract, alcohols and perfumes “may cause irritation” especially if you have sensitive skin.
