Last night a pedicure changed my life…

OK, so strictly speaking said life-changing pedicure took place on Saturday.

But I’m still skipping from one of the best foot treatments I’ve had in a very long time…

The medical pedicure at Margaret Dabbs’ new Marylebone Foot Clinic reached parts of my feet no other pedi has ever reached. So neat and shiny were my toenails by the end that I decided to skip the nail varnish – if there was ever a time to give them a break from highly-pigmented polish it was now – and there wasn’t an inch of rough skin left anywhere. The next morning when I leant down to wash my feet in the shower, I’d momentarily ‘forgotten’ about the treatment and the shock nearly made me slip – what were these two slabs of buttery softness and where had my real feet gone?

My real feet had been drilled, filed and buffed to within an inch of their lizard-like life. Like all of the Margaret Dabbs team (including celebrity foot fixer Margaret Dabbs herself), my therapist, Tamara, was a fully-qualified podiatrist who availed herself of various tools, including a surgical blade and electrical buffers, in order to perfect my feet. The treatment was practical rather than indulgent – don’t expect a lengthy foot massage – but who cares when the results are so good?

The spa itself was lovely – and I’ve seen a few. Luxurious but laid-back with a friendly atmosphere and good service. I also loved where the treatment was carried out – in a big, comfy armchair-like affair that tipped me back just enough to feel wonderfully relaxed but not so much I couldn’t sip my tea or flick through a magazine.

Tamara was so confident about the results; she told me I wouldn’t need another treatment for at least three or four months. More’s the pity. But that’s not to say I can forget about my feet completely. The biggest mistake we make with feet, she told me, is neglecting to moisturise them. ‘You should be doing it every day.’ I rarely touch my feet, but now they look and feel so lovely, I actually want to.

Don’t just take my word for it, though: Margaret Dabbs Foot Clinic and Nail Spa is offering a special mother-daughter package to celebrate Mother’s Day, exclusively to readers of Beauty Notes Daily.
