Our feet do a lot for us. They take the beatings of the daily grind – getting crammed into sky high stilettos and narrow fashion pumps – and carry the weight of the world on two tiny little plains. We take our feet for granted, so isn’t it time that we treat them with the respect that they deserve. Homemade foot scrubs can be made with a brood of ingredients depending on what you’re looking to cure. Treat your feet to this sweet and luscious brown sugar foot scrub and help sooth those cracked heels, calloused toes and dry skin. Brown sugar also helps to slough off dead skin cells for faster skin regeneration and self repair. Apply this salt scrub to pre-soaked damp feet for the best results.
Things You'll Need
Mix Your Potion
Grind the oatmeal to a smooth powder in a food processor and set aside.
Combine the aloe vera, honey, lemon juice and almond oil in a small bowl. Mix with a fork until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Add the brown sugar and wet ingredients to the oatmeal in the food processor and process for one minute or until the mixture is a smooth paste.
Using a spatula, pour the mixture into an airtight container and seal with the lid.
Rub the scrub onto pre-soaked damp feet and massage for one or two minutes. Be gentle. Rinse with warm water, pat dry with a towel and apply a thick lotion of foot cream.
When combining the wet ingredients, you can heat the honey for about five seconds to make it more pliable and easier to combine.
