Guide To Buying An Electric Foot File
We’ve given you our top choices and to make your choice easier, here are some characteristics that you need to keep in mind:
Battery-powered foot files are cheaper in some cases portable. But it is a hassle to keep spare batteries on hand all the time. So foot files powered with electricity are convenient and portable at times. Plus they are better for the environment.
Skin is softer and more tameable when its wet and many people would like using a foot roller after a shower. In this case, it would be good to have a waterproof or water-resistant roller as it will not corrode or malfunction in the presence of moisture.
Compact & Lightweight
Ideally, a foot file should be compact, lightweight with a large file surface. This large file surface will offer you a quick corn and calluses removal job. If you want to take your foot file with you when you travel, you wouldn’t want it to be bulky and heavy. So choose one that can easily fit in your bag even with its charging attachments.
If you have really stubborn calluses or regular build-up of roughness in your heels, you might have to go for a powerful foot file. In such cases, the material of the roller is vital. However, don’t go overboard and overuse the file over your skin. If you have regular skin and want something to smoothen your skin, a nickel-metal manual file is the better choice.
Good design makes the foot roller easier to use. Features like an open roller, removable head and variable speed make the experience pleasant. A long handle will also make holding the foot file for long periods more comfortable.
