Who writes Beautiful Basics?

 Hi Beautiful! My name is Kassie and I’m a 27 year old from a small town in Oregon. I have a passion for all things beauty, being green, and writing which is why I started Beautiful Basics. In this blog you will find my thoughts on natural and organic beauty products as well as DIY beauty recipes and other odds and ends.

I’m not an expert or a professional but I have learned a lot about beauty and skin care by experimenting and teaching myself.

I like to keep this blog as positive as possible. I love testing out products but I only write about the ones I love.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you enjoy!


I also have a blog that chronicles my life living with chronic illness.

Jello To The Rescue!!

Do you have hot, sweaty feet? Maybe even smelly feet? You’re not alone. It’s very common for feet to develop an odor in the heat of the summer months thanks to excessive sweating. There is an easy (and cheap!) solution to the problem – Jello! Yes, Jello, as in the fruity, jiggly, colorful delight that so many of us like to snack on.

All you need to do is make 3 boxes of lemon or lime flavored Jello (or a generic substitute) and put into a big tub. Let the gelatin set up in the fridge and then submerge your feet in the cool, sugary treat. Soak for twenty minutes and when you’re finished your feet will be deodorized and stink free! It’s also cooling and incredibly relaxing.

I have no clue why this works but it does so try it out next time your feet are feeling overheated!

And then eat teh jello!!!


LOL, if you're a believer in not wasting anything then you could certainly eat the jello once you're done but I think I'll skip that step ;)
