Oftentimes, we forget about a couple of our most important body parts–our feet! It’s easy to overlook our poor, tired achy feet while we obsess over our faces and hair. While, it’s great to make sure our faces and hair looks great, we should also make sure our feet are getting the tender loving care they deserve. After all, the last thing we want is cracked, dry, and hard feet when we get older!
This is a simple milk, water, and sugar foot spa recipe that you can quickly throw together in a couple of minutes with items you are almost guaranteed to have in your fridge and pantry.
1/2 cup sugar
2-3 cups milk
7-8 cups of water
2-3 tablespoons of your favorite body lotion.
Mix the milk and the water together on a stove and stir and heat so that it is hotter than room temperature and as hot as your feet can handle. Be careful to test it so that you don’t burn yourself! Mix the sugar and the lotion together in a separate bowl. This mixture will be used to exfoliate your feet.
Place the milk and water in a bowl on the floor in a bowl and place your feet in it. Soak for at least 10 minutes and let your feet relax.
Use the lotion and sugar mixture and massage your feet with it to exfoliate and get rid of your dead skin cells. Do this for a few minutes and then rinse your feet with water. Dry your feet and apply a moisturizer. I use coconut oil to moisturize my feet after this mixture as it is a great moisturizer and then I follow it with grapeseed oil. I find that grapeseed oil is better at retaining moisture in your skin than lotions in general are.
Enjoy your soft feet!
