Now that the warm weather is finally here, I start to fret about my feet and toes. Spring and summer weather means shedding your boots and baring your feet in flip flops and sandals. Are your feet ready for that? If not, I have some great ideas for a little DIY Pedicure you can do right from home, with salon-quality results!
I love a great spa pedicure, and the place near me uses hot stones to massage your feet and calves and it's just heavenly. But heavenly doesn't always mean practical, and sometimes you need spa-like results from home.
With a few simple materials, you can give yourself a great DIY pedicure while you catch up on your latest binge on NetFlix or your favorite book.
What You Need
A Bowl or Basin to soak your feet in
A cuticle lotion
What You Do
- Fill your bowl or basin with warm water.
- Soak your feet for 10 minutes.
- Scrub all the rough skin from your feet with a fragrant sugar scrub.
- Rinse your feet and dry them with a towel.
- Apply a cuticle lotion to the cuticles on your toes.
- Apply your favorite polish and enjoy!
It's easy to make your own sugar scrub at home. All you need is a cup of granulated sugar, a quarter cup of oil (such as grapeseed) and 10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil. Mix all the ingredients together in a glass jar, and you have a wonderful sugar scrub.
You can also make a great cuticle lotion at home. Use about half a cup of carrier oil (such as grapeseed or Young Living's V-6 oil complex) and 10 drops of Melaleuca Essential Oil (Tee Tree Oil). Mix them together in a glass bowl or small jar.
Putting your DIY Sugar Scrub and Cuticle Lotion together with a nail file and pretty polish, makes a great gift too!
Are you a fan of the DIY pedicure at-home? If you aren't sure where to get your own essential oils or are curious about which essential oils to use (lemon, peppermint, Joy, oh my!) drop me a note, and I can help.
