Now that we officially have summer close at hand, it’s time to show off your best toes in your flip flops and sexy sandals. And if you can’t find time for a professional pedicure you need a game plan to make your feet look their very best. The best plans include a Soak, Scrub, Soften and Seal approach to get feet looking renewed. Before you begin mix together the f Energizing Barefoot Rejuvenating Foot Scrub and the Energizing Barefoot Rejuvenating Foot Cream recipes listed below. To soften, use one large body towel or two hand towels and warm in either a dryer or microwave. Place them in a bag to retain the heat as best as possible.
Here’s the ingredient you need for the Energizing Barefoot Rejuvenating Foot Soak:
- 2 cups whole milk
- 2 cups warm water
- 1 tbsp of hydrating coconut oil, or almond oil, or grape oil
- 2 to 4 drops of essential grapefruit oil
- a large basin
Mix together for the following for the Energizing Barefoot Rejuvenating Foot Scrub:
- ¼ cup kosher salt
- 1 tbsp sea salt
- 3 tbsp hydrating coconut oil, or almond oil, or grape oil
- 2 to 4 drops of essential grapefruit oil
Now create the Ultra Rich Energizing Grapefruit Foot Cream with the following ingredients:
- 1 tsp almond oil
- 1 tsp shea nut butter
- 1 tbsp emulsifying wax
- 2 fl oz mineral water
- 1 tsp glycerin
- 6 drops grapefruit essential oil
To create the Ultra Rich Soothing Grapefruit Foot Cream, melt together the oils through the emulsion process by mixing the oils, waxes and water together in a water bath. Create a water bath by placing the oils, waxes and waters together in a glass bowl that is larger than a saucepan. Place enough water in the saucepan to cover the bottom of the glass bowl. Gently heat up the ingredients to allow them to blend easily together.
Once the ingredients are mixed thoroughly together take a spatula to help gather each ounce of the mixture to place in a glass sealable jar. Allow the mixture to set at room temperature before the jar is sealed. This can be stored for up to 30 days on the shelf.
When you are ready to begin, take off any nail polish. Make sure you see no issues like any fungus, hang toes, or other damages that need to be addressed. If you do find a fungus perform these steps after completing the soak, scrub, and soften stages.
- If you do see fungus or odd yellowing of the nail bed, sometimes even raised, apply tea tree oil under and over the nail bed at bedtime.
- Allow it to dry and then apply a layer of castor oil under and over the nail bed.
- Cover your feet with socks so the mixture stays put. Do this every few days until the area is cleared up.
Next allow your feet to soak in a large basin with 3 cups warm water and 3 cups warm whole milk (or if you need more liquid to use one part warm water and one part warm whole milk). Add in a few drops of hydrating oils such as almond oil, coconut oil, or even grape oil. Next add in a few drops of grapefruit essential oil to reenergize your feet. Don’t rush this, as you need to have at least 10 minutes soaking so that the full benefits penetrate into the tougher skin on the bottoms of the feet. Don’t dump the mixture you’ll want to finish with one last dip.
Once complete, carefully remove your feet from the basin and gently rub into the foot bed the Energizing Barefoot Rejuvenating Foot Scrub.
Leave the Energizing Barefoot Rejuvenating Foot Scrub mixture on the feet and dip the feet back into the Energizing Barefoot Rejuvenation Foot Soak mixture. It’s okay to have some of the scrub mixture come off the skin. Leave the feet within the milk basin bath for a few minutes to saturate the feet one more time. Then take the feet out and carefully wrap the feet into the warm towel. Allow at least five minutes to allow the mixture to further penetrate deeper into the skin.
When ready, rinse the feet gently with warm water and apply the Ultra Rich Energizing Grapefruit Foot Cream generously to the skin. Massage the Foot cream into the skin gently. Slip on cotton socks to keep the cream and the moisture from escaping. Your feet with be silky smooth if you follow each of the steps, so be super careful when you take the socks off!
