Three Ways to Soften Up Your Summer Feet!

3 Ways to Soften Your Summer Feet

Three Ways to Soften Up Your Summer Feet


Natural Treatments to Pamper Your Feet

Summer can do a number on your feet!  Between wearing sandals and flip flops to walking barefoot to exposing them to intense heat and sun, our feet take a beating this time of year.  Fortunately, you can restore them to splendor by following these 3 easy steps.

1.  Soak  A foot soak softens and hydrates your skin and soothes your muscles.  Did you know that the soles of your feet have no oil glands?  It's true and they are only self-moisturized by sweat glands.  When you're outside in sandals, your feet sweat  less which leads to excess dryness and cracking.  Soak your feet in a basin with a cup of Epsom Salt and warm water for 10-15 minutes.  Add essential oils like lavender or wintergreen for an extra treat.

2.  Exfoliate  After soaking, use a pumice stone and rub off the dry skin, focusing on heels and callouses.  Alternatively, make a Vanilla Mint Honey Scrub (see recipe below courtesy of Mountain Rose Herbs) and massage into wet skin for 2 minutes.

3.  Treat   Rinse your feet and pat dry then treat them to a thick rich balm (like Herbal Miracle Balm) or use straight shea butter concentrating on the heels and any other areas with thick skin.  To speed up of the softening process, after applying balm, wear cotton socks to bed to lock in moisture.

Vanilla Mint Honey Scrub Recipe

1 cup sea salt or organic sugar
1/2 cup organic vegetable oil (almond, olive or avocado)
1/4 cup raw organic honey
1 vanilla bean split and scraped (or use 1 tsp vanilla extract)
10 drops organic peppermint essential oil (optional)

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and stir.  If too oily, add more salt or sugar until you reach the desired grainy consistency.  Avoid getting water in the scrub.  Store covered for up to 1 month
