Sunshine, warmer days, flip fops and coconut sea salt foot scrub.
Here comes spring! Time to do a little spring cleaning on your feet!
When it comes time to slip on the sandals and show off those cute toes we often realize that our feet are in need of a little love.
Feet in general need a little love. We stand on them. We walk on them. They get cold before the rest of us. We cram them into weird shoes. We dance on them. We owe them a thanks for being our foundation. But on top of all that feet do not have any oil glands in them, so keeping them soft and crack free takes a little extra work.
Keeping soft feet requires two essential steps. One is exfoliating off all the dead skin, and the second is moisturizing. Coconut sea salt foot scrub does both at the same time.
This is a simple foot scrub for your feet that you can make at home and keep on hand to keep those feet soft and smooth all summer.
Coconut Sea Salt Foot Scrub
You will need the coarsest sea salt you can find and coconut oil. Granulated sugar works as well, but the sea salt has the added benefit of being detoxifying. Adding essential oils is optional.
½ cup Sea Salt
¼ cup Coconut Oil
2-4 drops Lavender, Peppermint, or Tea Tree Essential Oil (optional)
Combine ingredients in a glass jar with a lid.
To use simply: massage vigorously over feet.
To use like a wild woman who runs hard and then pampers herself:
Exfoliate feet with a pumice stone or foot file.
Soak you feet in a warm oil bath for 20 minutes.
Then massage coconut scrub into feet.
Rinse and pat feet dry.
Then bundle your feet up in a pair of old cotton socks and let all that goodness soak in for at least 20 minutes.
Optional: Put your feet up and enjoy a cup of tea (or wine?).
Or go to sleep.
Or paint some natural nail polish on those pretty toes.
