How to Get Perfect Summer Feet Naturally
It is hard to believe, but sandal time is around the corner once again. However, before you slip your feet into your sandals or flip-flops, you may just want to give them a little spring make-over. That does not mean you need to rush out and buy a lot of expensive footcare products. The perfect solution to perfect summer feet may even be sitting in your larder or kitchen cupboard.
Did you know that oat, porridge oats, can do miracles for your entire skincare routine? Porridge oats are packed with wonderful ingredients which will help to soften your skin. All you need to do is to fill up your foot spa or a large bowl with some hot water, add about half a cup of oats, and let them soak for a few minutes. Give them a stir in the water and slip your feet in for about a 15-minute soak. Dry them off and repeat the process a couple of times per week.
Honey is something which most people have sitting around in their kitchen cupboard. Natural honey is a wonderful healer and will help to soften your skin at the same time. It can help to smooth wrinkles and will soften the skin on your feet. Add some honey to the roughest areas of your feet such as cracked heels and hard skin which have formed during the winter. Wrap your feet up in towels, wait for 30 minutes, and then rinse off in hot water.
Did you know that fruit acids can help to make your skin soft? Some citrus fruits are better than others. Grapefruit is the one citrus fruit which stands out when it comes to feet skincare but pineapple is great as well. You really need to have the real deal available. It would be easy to turn to fruit juice but it is simply not as effective.
This is a great way to use up the core of a pineapple. The core is packed with a digestive enzyme called bromelain. Grapefruit also has a range of active enzymes which can help to soften your feet. Juice both fruits and add them to your foot spa. Not only will your feet start getting softer quickly but they will smell better. Another bonus is that the risk of fungal infections is reduced when you use this natural foot spa treat.
