You’ve set the mood with candles, ordered in some wine and cheese, and listened to your favorite bleak podcast together, and just as things are heating up and you’re about to get into bed, it happens. He takes off his socks. You gaze and sniff in horror at the pair of hobgoblins he calls feet. And it’s as if some kid on Sabrina had cast the wrong spell: instead of enchantment, a musty smell drifts over you, and you think of things like school locker rooms… and Camembert.

Don’t be this guy. Keep your feet groomed so you don’t wind up accidentally banishing romance. Here are some handy shortcuts.

1. Callus Remover

This pro-level pedicure tool does what it sounds like. For smooth, youthful and not-crusty looking feet, sand some of the rough edges down with one of these.

This handsome set is super portable too, so you can take it with you on your next beach vacation — and trim those toenails before hitting the sand.
