DIY Foot Scrub & Cream for Beautiful Feet

Are your feet in serious need of a DIY pedicure? These DIY foot scrub, foot soak, and foot cream recipes will leave your feet soft, smooth, and beautiful!

Spring has sprung, so it’s a great time to show your feet some love. While we’re partly rejoicing that we can finally break out those cute sandals, the reality is we’ve been neglecting our feet. And they’re totally not sandal ready. Cold weather plus the dry winter air can take a toll on your feet. For several months they’ve been hidden in socks, boots, and fuzzy slippers.

Your feet are probably looking forward to spring as much as you are. Keeping them exfoliated and moisturized will not only have them looking their best, but feeling great. These all-natural recipes can be whipped up at home, and are a great way to get your tootsies ready for their spring debut. Throw a pedicure party, invite a few friends, and join in the fun!

DIY Foot Scrub

Exfoliate

Begin by exfoliating your feet, using either an exfoliating tool, a scrub, or both. For the feet, it’s a good idea to use a foot scrub with a little more skin-polishing and abrasive power.

DIY foot scrubs are a great way to show your feet extra love and care, and who doesn’t want that? They’re simple and easy to make, and you get the royal treatment right at home.

Try adding some intensive exfoliating ingredients such as mineral-rich salts (Himalayan pink salt, Dead Sea salt, European spa salt, and Epsom salt) to your DIY foot scrub and pair them with some moisturizing oils (coconut and jojoba oils). The following foot scrub recipe is great for pedicures.
