Fall is here (supposedly) and it is still in the upper 80's low 90's here in Maryland so that means I can continue to rock my cute sandals and flip flops a little longer. So with that being said I still have to make sure that my feet are sandal ready. One way that i do this is by using a quick, easy and effective scrub using items that I already have on hand. Now..yes...i could make a scrub using the ingredients that I use in the sugar scrubs in my shop such as Avocado Oil and Macadamia Nut Oil but sometimes its nice to get back to basics...
The Brown Sugar Foot Scrub recipe that I am going to share with you helps to soften, deodorize and exfoliate your feet and not only is it easy to create, but uses basic pantry items that you may have on hand: Brown Sugar, Baking Soda and Olive Oil. Ummm...yes please!
For single use you will need the following:
1- TBSP Brown Sugar
1- TBSP Baking Soda
1- TBSP Olive Oil
A clean sanitized bowl of your choice or clean sanitized mason jar with lid.
Mix together all three ingredients and use on your feet, even your elbows and knees. Rinse off well and then use a good moisturizer like our Buttercream or Oatmeal Cream which is also one of our best sellers.
This can be used one to two times per week. If you don't have baking soda it's fine. Just use Olive and Brown Sugar. DO NOT USE BAKING POWDER! Baking powder does contain some Bicarbonate of Soda but also contains a weak acid.
If you don't have olive oil you can certainly swap for coconut oil, sunflower or grapeseed oil. In place of brown sugar, white sugar or sea salt is a great option too. Just make sure if you are using salt and decide to shave first...it will sting. Just an FYI
This simple scrub can last for months as long as it is not exposed to water. Keep it stored in a clean mason jar away from moisture.
