Packing for an upcoming beach trip, I realized that I was in desperate need of some new sandals, but then the thought of new sandals made me realize how badly I needed to correct my feet situation.
Oh. My. Heels.
Yeah, my feet were in bad shape.
I could go get a pedicure, but did I have time? Not really. I am a procrasti-packer, and with a new baby, mama didn’t get to the spa before our trip.
Plus…I actually really enjoy making my own spa goodies. It’s fun, simple, cost effective, fast, and it works! I’ve made a few of others here.
We use our feet everyday, so no wonder they need extra love. If you wear open toe shoes often or if you live in an arid climate, your feet will get extra dry!
You’re going to love this sexy summer feet DIY. (would be fun to do for a girls night in too!)
I found the ultimate in Mission: Sexy Feet the other day when I was at Bed Bath & Beyond.
They are seriously so yummy.
I’ve started putting them on in the evening with my foot cream and it really helps my feet stay moisturized.
As for toenail polish, I really like the brand Zoya. For summer, I’m crushing on this color.
Here’s what you need to do:
Sexy Feet Scrub
- Bowl & warm water for soaking feet
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil or oil of your preference
- 2 T Grapeseed Oil
- 10 drops Citrus Essential Oil or oil blend of your preference
- Pumice Stone
- Foot Cream
- Gel Socks optional
- Strawberry Daiquiri not optional 🙂
- Cute Nail Polish
Soak feet 5-10 minutes in warm water.
Make DIY scrub: Combine sugar and oils. Mix together and place in a container with a lid. (This can be stored in the shower and used on body)
Sip daiquiris and chat with girlfriends.
Apply scrub to legs and feet and exfoliate.
Rinse with warm water.
Dry with washcloth.
Use pumice to scrub heels and bottoms of feet.
Rinse any dead skin off the feet and/or pumice.
Apply foot cream.
Sleep in socks overnight to retain moisture or use gel socks for maximum absorption.
Paint toenails and be cute.
What are some of your favorite essential oils to use? I really love Citrus, Lavender, and Vanilla blends.
