How to Get Soft Feet Fast

Yesterday, my daughter wanted to paint her toenails, which is always our mom-daughter activity when the guys are gone.  Unfortunately, my feet needed some serious TLC before I got an at-home pedicure.  Naturally, I used recipes from this blog to pamper my feet, and they feel great!  These recipes are inexpensive, so you can get soft feet fast without spending anything.

1.  Soak

First, I soaked my feet to soften the skin and relax a little bit.  I grabbed my iPad and read while my feet soaked in the warm water.  I filled a basin with liquid castile soap and baking soda.  The soap softens your skin and cleans it, and the baking soda naturally deodorizes them.  Pat feet dry for the next step.

2.  Scrub

Next, scrub your feet with a sugar scrub to get rid of the dead skin.  I made my Easy Sugar Scrub recipe with half olive oil, half coconut oil, and all white sugar.  I used coconut oil mainly for the smell, but it did work very well in the recipe.  You can use any oil you have on hand.  Scrub your feet all over for several minutes.  Don't forget to get your toes so they look great after you use polish!

3.  Moisturize

Keep your feet moisturized to keep them soft.  I used the Peppermint Foot Lotion recipe I shared several weeks ago.
