Do you suffer from dry feet? It’s that time of year when your feet need a little extra love and care. Dry feet can creep up on you at any time of the year causeing you to feel uncomfortable and insecure. Turbo charge and condition those beautiful tootsies with a few inexpensive ingredients that you already have at home.
Here are 3 Simple home remedies to relieve dry feet:
Soak your feet
Create a soothing foot soak with Epsom Salts and warm water. Epsom salt is loaded with magnesium, detoxifies, soothe aches and soften rough skin. Add 1/2 cup of Epsom salt to a large pan of warm water. Soak feet for as long as you like. Rinse and moisturize while the feet are still damp. Moisturize with a little Sea butter or olive oil. Add a little lavender or peppermint oil and off you go.
Sugar scrub is one of the easiest ways to exfoliate and repair dry skin. Mix sugar ( brown sugar is my favorite), olive oil and (optional) an essential oil like lavender or peppermint. Rub the sweet concoction all over your feet. Be sure to give a little love and attention to the heels of your feet. Rinse and rub in a little olive oil while feet are still damp. Place a pair of socks to lock in the moisture. Go to sleep and remove in the morning.
Head to your kitchen cabinet to find out out you had them all along. The ingredients to naturally moisturize your dry, cracked feet. Rub a cotton round moistened with extra virgin olive oil all over your feet. Work the oil into the skin using a circular motion. After applying the olive oil, slip on a pair of cozy cotton socks. This allows the oil to soak into your skin. Remove your socks in about 2 hours.
