The weather is warming up, and it’s almost time to trade in your boots for sandals. Get your feet smooth and summer-ready with three simple steps. It’s easy to add these steps to your weekly routine so your feet can stay fab for the summer!
Step One: Exfoliate
A sugar scrub will gently slough off old skin cells to reveal your soft and smooth feet. This DIY essential oil-infused scrub smells great and will transform your feet.
In a small bowl, mix coconut oil or V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex with essential oils. Use our suggestions or pick your own favorites. Add mixture to raw sugar in a larger bowl and combine thoroughly. Store in an airtight jar.
You may want to use a pumice stone to speed up the exfoliation process; however, avoid scrubbing your calluses raw or removing them altogether. Remember, they are there to protect your feet. Simply buff them smooth and avoid any cuts or lacerations that could invite infection.
HINT: Use about a tablespoon for each foot. Be careful in the shower: The scrub can make your shower slippery! Washing and thoroughly rinsing one foot before the other helps avoid slipping.
Step Two: Cuticle Care
After a shower or bath, gently push your cuticles back in preparation for a DIY cuticle treatment. You can use a pedicure tool or a towel.
- 15-ml coconut oil or V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex
- 20 drops Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alernifolia)
Use a glass container. Add 20 drops of Tea Tree oil to your carrier oil – coconut or V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex. To use, add 1 drop to your cuticles and rub in until absorbed.
HINT: Use an AromaGlide Roller Fitment on the top of your 15-ml bottle to make application of V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex treatment quick and easy.
Step Three: Moisturize
Young Living offers fantastic moisturizers, including Genesis™,Lavender, Sensation™ Hand & Body Lotion, and KidScents®lotions. No favorite yet – Try a couple of options in your next order and soon fall in love with one.
HINT: Before going to bed, generously massage your favorite lotion all over your feet and legs, and then put on a pair of cotton moisturizing socks.
Whether you make this DIY pedicure a part of your spring cleaning routine or decide to do it every day, these three simple steps are sure to keep your feet happy and ready for the sunshine!
