Home-Made Sugar Foot Scrub

With summer in full swing and holidays in warmer climate fast approaching its time to get your feet beach/pool ready. There is nothing worse than having dry, hard or cracked heals when trying to rock you favourite sandals.
Here is a really simple but super effective DIY home made foot scrub for you to try out.
I absolutely love it and highly recommend you give it a go.

What you need:
Well its really simple you need two ingredients Caster sugar and Baby oil.
You can replace the baby oil with coconut, almond or even olive oil. I adore the smell of baby oil so that's what i have opted for.

For a hand size amount of scrub you will need approximately 2 heaped table spoons of caster sugar and 1 table spoon of baby oil.
The measurement can be altered to increase or decrease the amount you need but as long as the oil to caster sugar ratio are the same.

All you need to do is add both ingredients in to a bowl and mix it together with a spoon.



How to use:
Apply the foot scrub ,with your fingers ,to wet skin . Use a bit of elbow grease to scrub your feet in circular motion paying extra attention to your dry cracked heels (I usually apply mine in the shower,bath or after using my foot spa)

For best results use moisturising socks in bed the same night. If you don't have any, lather your feet in foot or moisturising cream and pop your feet in to a regular pair of cotton socks.
Allow the heat and the cream to work together over night. Your feet will feel ultra baby soft the next morning. This is also a fantastic way to kick start your pedicure.


Hope you enjoy it, why not give the editable lip scrub ago?

  3. Hi Katie, thanks for joining the blog hop and following my blog :) I am now following you as well.

    I love DIY beauty recipes, they are affordable and some of them work better because they don't contain any harsh ingredients. This foot scrub looks like a good idea because now that it summer it is also sandal season!
