healthy feet skinPart 3 of Dr Barbara Kubicka’s tricks for summer skin looks at the very common issue of foot skin. As bare feet are exposed to the heat, the skin can become very hard and dry. Not only is this unattractive, but if left it can be increasinly sore too. 

How to Achieve Smoother Feet

Removing socks or tights and baring feet in sandals or flip flops for the first time can be quite a sobering experience. Many adults suffer from hard, dry skin on the soles of their feet. The skin around the heels can start to crack, causing discomfort especially when walking.

Hand held devices have become a popular option in recent years. These work to ‘file’ away dead and dry skin in order to reveal newer, fresher layers of skin beneath. The exfoliating process also works to stimulate skin renewal.

A professional option recommended by Dr Barbara Kubicka at Clinicbe takes this a ‘step further’. Dr Kubicka offers a chemical peel to break down the outer layers of hard dead skin, kick-starting a peeling process which then encourages new skin cells to form.

This treatment can be very helpful in recovering healthier skin for the feet. It is particularly useful in advance of a big occasion, where patients want their feet to look their very best in strappy sandals or shoes. Patients planning this treatment are advised to think about the timing and plan ahead, so that the ‘peeling process’ is complete in time, leaving soft and smooth fresh skin.

A similar treatment is also available for the hands, which after a winter’s exposure, can respond well to a refreshing peel to perk up the skin.


Dr Kubicka takes a holistic approach to skincare treatments; treating the patient as a whole in order to get the best possible results from any treatments they may have.

Private consultations include a review of wider health and lifestyle issues and often include individual advice on nutrition, hydration and lifestyle as well as professional treatments.

Advice on any non-surgical skin treatments is made after extensive discussion and review.

Popular aesthetic treatments include wrinkle-relaxing injections and facial fillers as well as mesotherapy and dermaroller.

The clinic also has the latest pain-free mesotherapy injection system, IPL, PRP and PDO threads.
