In the Summer (and Spring, and some of Fall), I am a die-hard flip flop fanatic. I love being able to let my toes be free and allow them to see the sun and breathe the fresh air. However my feet get really rough and tough during these months of exposure to the elements. Using a foot scrub regularly is the best way to keep your feet feeling footsie friendly, so today I have a great DIY foot scrub recipe to share with you.
You will need:
- 1 cup of salt (table or Epsom)
- 1/3 cup oil of your choice (olive, almond, jojoba)
- 1 tablespoon of castile soap (which is a great DIY beauty staple!)
- Peppermint oil (you can use anywhere between 1-6 drops, or none at all, depending on your preferences)
It's a good idea to soak your feet in warm/hot water before doing this scrub because the water will soften your feet and make them more susceptible to the benefits of the scrub. You can even throw some salt into the water for added effect. Soaking for 10-15 minutes will be sufficient. After soaking, massage the mixture onto your feet, scrubbing to get all of the dead skin off. Rinse them when you're finished and that's it! Your feet have now been pampered and are ready to take on the day!
