Mint and Sea Salt Foot Scrub
Say goodbye to your foot problems with this natural foot scrub. It eliminates the dead skin cells, leaving your feet smoother, cleaner and fresher.
Here is what you need to prepare this natural foot scrub:
- 1 cup of regular salt
- 1 cup of sea salt
- 1 cup of baking soda
- 15-20 drops of mint essential oil
- 1 tsp. of green tea oil
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Then, put the mixture in a jar, close the lid and shake well. Use this scrub at least once a week.
The sea salt eliminates dead skin cells, the green tea oil has an antibacterial effect, protecting your feet from fungi and bacteria. Mint oil has a soothing and relaxing effect on your feet.
Exfoliate your feet every day
Calluses and dead skin will build up on your feet from simple, every day use. In order to remove calluses, use a foot file or pumice stone to remove dead skin from the bottom or sides of your feet every day, after a shower or bath.
Hydrate your feet daily
Feet do not have a lot of oil glands to keep the skin moisturized on their own. With age, the cell regeneration in our skin slows down and also impacts foot dryness. To help offset these problems, put foot moisturizer on your feet every day, ideally after a shower or bath.
Soften your toenails
As we age, our toenails get thicker and harder from the constant contact with the inside of our shoes. To help soften your toenails, you can apply petroleum jelly to your toenails before bed, every night.
Remove overgrown cuticles
Every 2 weeks, rub cuticle oil on your toenails and soak your feet in warm water for 10 minutes. Use a wooden manicure stick to push your cuticles back and remove excess skin.
Make your own foot soak
There are several types of foot soaks that can help keep your feet soft. Unless otherwise noted, mix the ingredients into 1-1.3 gallons (4-5 litres) of warn water in a tub or bucket large enough for both of your feet to be covered with water. Soak your feet in the mixture for 10-15 minutes at a time. Follow-up the soak by removing dead skin using a pumice stone or foot file, then apply foot moisturizer.
Administer your own foot scrub
Remove one foot from the foot soak and apply approximately 1 tablespoon of the a foot scrub mixture to the foot. Use your hand or a cloth to scrub the mixture all over your foot, then rinse the mixture off in the water. Repeat the same process with your second foot.
Produce your own foot cream
Foot cream should be used after you’ve soaked and scrubbed your feet, and removed any dead or excess skin. Apply the foot cream all over your feet, including on the tops and on your ankles. To prevent yourself from slipping on tile or hardwood floors, wear socks immediately after you apply the cream.
Create your own foot mask
Before bed, moisturize your feet using your normal foot cream. Next, coat your feet in the mixtures outlined below. Then wrap your feet in plastic wrap, and put a pair of sock on top of the plastic wrap. Go to bed. In the morning, take off your socks and the plastic wrap. Wipe off any excess mixture that may be left on your feet.
