I know many of you may have your doubts. I know I have had mine. I have tried many different types of foot care and exfoliating products, and I will spare you the details of my personal foot issues for the most part, as discussing foot issues are something many people I know cringe about. The fact is though ladies, we all want to wear those pretty summer sandals, but many of us have a very difficult time keeping our feet summer ready!
I have worn out most of my Sperrys, and other summer worthy shoes shying away from sandals, and on the good days, when my skin is not so unsightly, have been able to wear a pair of my cherished sandals, but those days are rare.
So how do I get my feet summer ready? One thing I enjoy doing, and using, are home madefoot scrubs. They are fun and easy to make, and wonderful to feel the reward of your own homemade scrub on your tootsies!
There are many recipes for homemade foot scrubs but mine is made from things I have readily available around my home. First you need something that helps exfoliate such as coffee grounds. I have plenty of these left over each day, and the caffeine remaining in them is actually good for your skin. I also add Tea Tree Oil because it has a safe anti-bacterial effect. Then I add just a little lavender oil for the scent and relaxing qualities of lavender. The oils also help bind the coffee grounds together so that you can spread it on your feet. Now the little bit of Tea Tree and Lavender oil you use will not be enough of a binding agent so you will still need to add another carrier oil and Olive Oil works fine although coconut oil is nice as well. I personally love using Sweet Almond Oil because it is extra good on dry and aging skin. It all comes down to personal preference however. If you want a bit of a cooling sensation you can also add peppermint oil as well. The combinations of potential scrubs is endless and what better way to get summer ready than sitting down with a few friends sipping on a Margarita and making or using foot scrubs? Don't worry, you really can't mess it up. If you need more carrier oil just add more. Want more cooling sensation, add more peppermint. You can use sugar in place of coffee as well if you are not a coffee drinker. Just have fun, that is the only "rule".
