Summer Feet Care + DIY Scrub

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend. Today’s post is about what I do to have sandal-ready feet! I walk around barefoot all the time, so I need to pamper my feet every now and then!

The first thing that I do is use a pummous stone to remove any dead skin or callouses on the bottom of my feet. You need to make sure to do this on completely dry feet. I use this pummous stone by Earth Therapeutics that I found at Ulta.

The next thing that I like to do is to exfoliate. I make a sugar scrub by combining a 1/2 cup of sugar with 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. You can use any type of oil that you can find, in the past I have used olive oil and baby oil. It doesn’t really matter. I like using oil instead of water because I think it leaves my feet softer.

I combine it in a bowl until it looks like applesauce and use it to really scrub my feet. This leaves your feet feeling really soft.

The next thing that I like to do is to apply a really thick cream or body butter. These are my two favorites, this coconut one from The Body Shop, and this one from Soap & Glory called Righteous Butter.

These are really thick and very moisturizing on your feet. I like to put some socks on after I apply a generous amount of this, and leave them on for a few hours at night. When you take your socks off, you will have the softest feet ever!

I hope you guys liked this post, let me know if you try it!

Thanks for reading, and have a great week!
