to use this power tool as a beauty aid?

I have an engraving and rotary tool which I use for my hobby. It occurred to me I could use the sanding attachment to remove hard skin from my feet. It worked a treat. I then used it gently to remove dry skin from the front of my shins. (I do have very dry skin).
Does anyone else do this? are there any drawbacks? I can't see any unless I get too enthusiastic with it.

Do you fancy a trip to A&E?

A salon I used to go to used Dremel with very fine sander attachments for pedicures. As long as you use a really fine grit I think you'll be fine on your feet (don't press on one area for too long). I'd give the shins a miss though!

And to think I laughed in amusement when I was reading the instruction booklet for an electric paint stripper and it said something to the effect of 'Don't use this tool to dry your hair!'

I thought it was so funny back then.

Omg that sounds hideously dangerous! Get thee a pot of salt another pot of coconut oil, mix and exfoliate. Maybe the power tool worked the first time if your skin was mega scaly but long term I think it's a dud idea. So much scope for skin damage and accidents.

Don't scholl make a pedicure sander thing? Might be better to invest in one of those?
