Here’s what you’ll need for the scrub:

  • Baking Soda
  • Olive Oil
  • Brown Sugar (or white sugar will do)
  • Lavendar Essential Oil (optional)
  • Measuring Spoons (if you’re really into accuracy)

Things you’ll need to prepare your feet for before & after the scrub:

  • Small tub of water to soak your feet
  • Pumice Stone and/or Foot Scrubber

And you’re DONE ^_^

 

It’s so easy, it almost didn’t deserve a post (hehe, almost ;))

 

Benefits of all the ingredients of this scrub:

Baking Soda: Helps exfoliate the dead skin like no other (like this is serioualy my favorite exfoliator by all means) leaving your feet baby skin soft

Brown Sugar: Provides an abrasive base to help getting rid of those flaky-ass dryness

Olive Oil: After those big boy exfoliators done their job, comes in this miracle worker of a moisturizer to make that sahara desert into a tropical oasis of heavenly softness…and if you think i’m exaggerating, then you’ve never tried olive oil on your skin as a moisturizer…it’s okay, apology accepted

 

Lavendar: Will just give you that Spa-licious feeling that you just paid an arm & a leg at a fancy Spa!

 

Now you know how to make this all natural foot scrub, here’s a little tip on how to use it

 

First, depending on how rough your feet are, if they’re cracked like the Sahara desert (we’ve all been there), then soak them in luke warm water for at least 15mins

Tip: Don’t use excessively hot water as it only aids in making your feet drier in the long run

When you’re feet are all soaked and subble, use a Pumice stone or a Foot Scrubber on your feet, depending on how rough your feet are & what you are used to using…generally speaking the pumice stone is usually less abrasive and can be used more often then the scrubber which shouldn’t be used more than once a month as long as you are using the pumice stone regularly

You’re probably thinking why do I need to use a pumice stone or a scubber if I’m doing a natural scrub, well this is all because you’re doing this for the first time in a while (guess by your cracked footsies), but if you already don’t have seriously dry feet, you don’t need to do all of that before you use the scrub

 

You just need to rub the scrub on your heels & all over your feet, (the amount in the post will excatly fit both your feet) and rinse it will luke warm water (or cold water if you could take it)… and finally just pat dry your feet and apply a heavy moisturizer like L’Occitane 15% Foot Cream <—it’s review over here ^_^ or  something like The Body Shop’s Hawaiian Kukui Cream

The last thing you need to do is ravel in how maginificently soft your feet are going to feel after this amazing scrub & mini pamper section you gave your well deserved feet

 

If you enjoyed this as much as I think you will, share it with your friends with a sly emojis as if you’re not just telling them in their faces their heels can grate parmesan but what the heck, that’s what friends are for right? 😛 Share the soft feet love I say ^_^
