Olive foot scrub
Mix 1/3 of a cup of olive oil with a cup of Epsom salts to form a paste. Voila! The world’s easiest foot scrub! The Epsom salts in this foot treatment will scour away rough, hard skin and the olive oil will penetrate dry areas deeply for silky smooth feet!
Sugar foot scrub
2 tablespoons of raw sugar
2 tablespoons of ground oats (grind with a mortar and pestle)
1 tablespoon of honey
1 teaspoon of olive or almond oil
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a bowl to form a smooth paste then slough away that cracked, flaky skin. So deliciously sweet, you’ll want to eat it!
Strawberry foot scrub
In a bowl, roughly mash up a punnet of fresh strawberries, then add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and a teaspoon of sea salt crystals and mix to form a paste. Containing salicylic acid, which rids the skin of dead cells, fresh strawberries are perfect for your foot health routine.
Lemon-mint foot scrub
De-seed and cut the flesh out of one lemon, then place in blender to form a pulp. Add 2 tablespoons of raw sugar, a tablespoon of almond oil and a handful of fresh mint leaves for a fresh-smelling foot health scrub that will penetrate dry spots deeply and leave your feet beautifully clean and soft.
