Even though the summer is over (and it flew by so fast!), that's no reason to neglect taking care of your feet. You might not be showing them off in sandals or flip flops for a few months, but I think we can all agree there's nothing worse than rough skin rubbing against your tights and socks. Also ugly feet are definite romance killers, if you know what I mean!
That said, it is, of course, easiest to go to the nearest salon and get a pedicure. However, if money is tight or you just don't feel like going out, let me tell you a little secret: you can do it yourself, for a few pennies and with just a wee bit of work.
The first thing you want to do is to make your very own, luscious scrub. It is easier than frying an egg or making lemonade! Just take a small bowl and mix together 1 tablespoon of baking soda, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar (or regular if that's all you have) and 1 tablespoon of oil (if you want it extra luscious, use olive oil).
When done, take a good book, get a washbowl and fill it with warm soapy water and dunk your feet in. Enjoy this for 15 to 20 minutes, then wipe your feet with a towel and apply the home made scrub generously. Massage your feet in small circular motions for a few minutes. Rinse well, apply lotion and voila - lovely, soft feet!
This scrub can be used on elbows and knees too, but too harsh for face and softer body skin. Hope you enjoy!
