How are your feet? A little rough? Mine too. In the summer, my daughter and I do an at home pedicure every weekend. We sit outside on the patio and I scrub and moisturize my feet, then we both pick wild and crazy colors to paint our nails.
Now that winter is coming, we don't have as much time as we did during the lazy days of summer, so we are lucky to do a pedi once a month. Needless to say, my feet aren't looking their best. Last weekend, I made the time to do my at home pedicure, but my poor heels needed something extra. They were rough, dry, and cracked from weeks of neglect and the dry winter air.
We set off for Target to pick up a few things, and I found the new Amopé Pedi Perfect and foot cream in the foot care aisle. The Pedi Perfect is my secret weapon for soft feet. It gently takes off calluses and dead skin so my feet look and feel great!
Perfect! Now we can go home and start our at home pedicure! #RespectUrFeet
If your feet are callused and have a lot of dry skin, moisturizer alone isn't enough. The moisturizer can't penetrate the thick dead skin, so it can't heal your skin. First you have to take off the dead skin. The Amopé Pedi Perfect has a rotating head that has micro-abrasive particles that gently take off dead skin, including thick calluses, to leave your feet smooth.
After I got the calluses off, I wanted to exfoliate my entire foot. Since it's close to Christmas, I made this peppermint foot scrub. The peppermint is cooling, so it feels great on tired feet.
Peppermint Foot Scrub
What You Need
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1/3 cup coconut oil (you can also use olive oil, but I like coconut oil best)
- 2 tablespoons vitamin E oil
- 1/3 cup liquid castile soap
- 5 drops peppermint essential oil
- 5 drops red food coloring
- mason jar
- If you are using coconut oil, melt it in the microwave at 10 second intervals in a glass dish. Add liquid castile soap and vitamin E oil.
- Combine sugar and oil mixture and stir well.
- Add peppermint essential oil.
- Divide the sugar scrub in to two bowls. Add red food coloring to one bowl and mix.
- Layer red and white scrub in the mason jar.
Once the dead skin is gone, it's time to moisturize. Amopé has an amazing foot lotion that moisturizes your skin for 24 hours with vitamin B3 and skin loving oils. Use this after you scrub your feet and every day for best results.
