HOW TO: DIY Hydrating Foot Scrub
This experimental mask came about right after getting home from Thailand. I arrived in the country at around 7 in the evening and wanted to have a foot spa as I did a lot of walking in my vacation, but I was too tired to even think about which foot spa to go to. I thought that a foot scrub is a good alternative so when I got home, I made one! I made a hydrating foot scrub because I noticed that my feet looked dull and felt dry, and thought that hydration will bring it back to life. The best part here is everything can be found in your kitchen! :)
Sharing the recipe below!
Ingredients:2 Tbsp. Rolled Oats
1 Tsp. Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. Muscovado (alternative: Brown Sugar)
2 Tbsp. Cosmetic Aloe Vera Gel (alternative: Pure Aloe Vera Gel; Petroleum Jelly)
STEP 1: Mix the rolled oats and muscovado in a dry bowl. Oats will promote exfoliation and moisture while Muscovado's smaller- sized particles will provide a more targeted exfoliation.
STEP 2: Add Olive Oil and mix the ingredients into a paste.
STEP 4: Add Aloe Vera Gel. Aloe Vera Gel is a great skin hydrator and it will also provide a gentle, moisturizing base.
We're done! It looks like porridge, eh?
P.S. Please don't eat it!
This is how it looks like on the skin. It's hydrating, easy to make and use, and super affordable. I left the concoction on my feet for 10 minutes and after rinsing it off, my feet felt really smooth and looked refreshed!
If you're interested to purchase cosmetic Aloe Vera, which I think you should because this multipurpose product is a wonder salve for the skin, you can try these products that I swear by: Aloe Derma Pure Aloe Vera Gel, Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92%, and Tony Moly Pure Aloe Gel, which is not included in the photo.
Let me know what you think about this foot scrub recipe of mine when you try it. :)
