Exfoliation is the act of removing dead skin. This beauty treatment makes your skin soft and makes you feel beautiful. The skin revealed after you exfoliate has a smooth, silky texture. Exfoliating your ankles creates a beautiful transition from your legs to your feet.

Things You'll Need

Sit in a comfortable position on the side of your bed or on a sofa where your ankle is within easy reach. Rub your ankles in a circular motion with a soft, dry washcloth to remove loose flakes of dead skin.

Mix a few drops of water with some salt or sugar to create a grainy mixture. Rub the mixture on your ankles, massaging them as you go.

Remove the grainy mixture from your ankles with a wet washcloth. Rinse the cloth well and repeat until you remove all of the mixture.

Dry your skin thoroughly and apply softening lotion. Repeat this exfoliation process once a week. You will pamper yourself by removing impurities from your skin and feeling relaxed, calm and stress free.


  • You can purchase creams or foot scrubs made to exfoliate the ankle. Generally, the main exfoliating ingredient is pumice and the moisturizing ingredient is usually aloe vera cream

  • You don’t need to spend a lot of money unless you want a name-brand product. Simple or home-made products give you the same results.
