There’s nobody who enjoys having or looking at ugly feet. In the modern world, numerous gadgets and lotions abound, promising the sought after appearance of healthy, soft feet. From the controversial callous shaver with its oft dreaded consequences of bloody accidents to pumice stones, foot scrubs and even tiny fish that eat at dead skin, people have long been trying to find an effective manner of maintaining beautiful, smooth feet.
Like everyone else, I’ve tried the gamut of products for feet, preferring some over others. However, much like I approach a lot of things in life, I sought a natural, easy method that didn’t involve razor blades or expensive paraffin treatments. After years of experimentation, I came across what has become my fool-proof, easy and relatively cheap method of keeping my feet soft, smooth and callous free.
Tips for Soft, Smooth Feet
- Using some type of pedicure basin, mix one part coconut milk to three parts of very warm water. Mix well and soak your feet for about 15 minutes. Then scrub the soles of your feet with a pumice stone. Gently pat dry with a towel, lather lotion on your feet and cover in socks for at least an hour, preferably overnight.
- Always moisturize the top and bottom of your feet after getting out of the shower.
- Before bedtime, lather a few drops of sesame, olive or almond oil all over your feet and cover with socks, leaving overnight.
Tips for Odorous Feet
- Using some type of pedicure basin, fill with enough warm water to soak your feet. Add a few drops of tea tree oil. For an extra effective treatment, cut up a fresh lime, squeezing the juice into the foot bath and drop in the lime remains.
- Mix a few drops of tea tree oil into a lotion or moisturizer, slathering over your feet and leave covered in socks overnight.
