Sometimes our feet can get a bit dry, or they take a lot of wear which causes the skin to thicken, harden and sometimes cracked. With the help of some natural ingredients you can make a wonderful natural foot scrub to help the sink on your feet become smoother and softer.
You are on your feet a lot during an average day, therefore using the natural foot scrub helps you to take care of them. Nobody likes to be uncomfortable when they walk or stand. Using this natural foot scrub you can help to keep your feet in good condition, and therefore keep healthy and comfortable. It also helps with circulation, feels fantastic and is a great way to treat yourself.
The ingredients you need to make the natural foot scrub:
Lemon Juice – has natural antibacterial properties that make it a great choice to treat your skin. It is also a natural exfoliant as the citric acid acts as a gentle “skin peel” that removes the top layer of dead skin cells. Leaving the skin soft and smooth.
Aloe vera – is fantastic for the skin. It contains protein, calcium, magnesium, zinc, vitamins A and E and C and many more.
Peppermint oil – helps to prevent irritation and itchiness, and also gives the feet a wonderful smell.
Sea Salt – contains minerals that can reduce inflammation. When mixed with oil, its a perfect exfoliant to remove dead skin cells.
