I'm learning to take me time, and I have to admit I am thoroughly enjoying it. I have a pedicure monthly now, but try to keep my feet soft and my polish fresh in between. I came across this chocolate foot scrub, and decided to try it. It smells delicious, removes dead skin and leaves your feet baby soft. I'm using it once a week.
Here it is:
- 3/4 cup peppermint essential oil (I purchased mine on e-bay)
- 5 tablespoons of grated chocolate, your choice
- 1 cup sugar (I used white)
Mix all ingredients until it is thickened. You can add extra oil if it gets too thick. Store left overs in a jar. I used old an old Mason jar that I had saved to store mine. I tied a pretty bow on it and it's sitting on my bath tub.
Soak your feet in a nice tub of foot soak for 15 minutes. Leave the water on your feet and massage the scrub onto your feet in a circular motion. Rinse. Before you completely dry your feet, use a little cuticle oil and a orange stick to push back your cuticles. Rinse again and than dry those tootsies. Finish your pedi with a good foot lotion. I normally use Bare Foot lotion, purchased from CVS, but I upgraded and I finished with a whipped chocolate lotion this time. The smell is devine, and it felt so good. Be sure to trim your nails properly and add a coat or two of polish or a clear color.
I would suggest that you use a base coat before you apply color and a top coat to finish. Use the top coat every 3 - 4 days to keep color fresh.
Enjoy. This scrub can be used on elbows too. Leave a comment with your foot care tips. We want to try yours too.
