Salt and sugar may not be healthy for consumption but when it comes to skin care they are one of the best natural cleansers in your kitchen and we’ll show you how you can use them properly.
Natural scrubs will help you eliminate the layer of dead skin cells and make your skin smooth, clean and fresh. Sugar is usually recommended for face scrubs because of its gentler texture, while sea salt is the best when it comes to the trouble areas like your feet, elbows and knees.
These are the areas that remain dry even when you apply a generous amount of body lotion and moisturizer, so what can you do?
We’ve prepared an amazing homemade scrub especially designed for foot care which will make your feet look and feel amazing just in time for summer. You just need a few basic ingredients and a few minutes of your time and your foot problems will be just a distant memory.
- 1 cup of regular salt
- 1 cup of sea salt
- 1 cup of baking soda
- 15-20 drops of mint essential oil
- 1 teaspoon of green tea oil
The sea salt particles will help you eliminate the dead skin cells while the green tea oil will have an antibacterial effect, protecting your feet from fungi and bacteria. Mint oil has a soothing and relaxing effect on your feet, making this a real spa experience.
You just need to mix up all the ingredients in a bowl and transfer them into a jar. Close the lid and shake the mixture well, until everything is combined and that’s it. For best results use the scrub at least once a week. The easiest solution for soft and smooth feet all summer long!
