Summer is here, making it a great time to show your feet a little extra love. Between flip-flops, sandy beaches, and barefoot romps through the grass, your feet can see a whole lot of action during the Summer months. Keeping them exfoliated and moisturized will not only have them looking their best, but feeling great. These all-natural recipes can be whipped up at home, and are great for throwing pedicure parties. Why not invite a few friends over to join in the fun.
Start off your pedicures with this refreshing foot soak. Make sure each guest has their own mini-tub to soak their feet in. This recipe is best made fresh, right when your guests are ready to begin the pedicure process. Make sure the water is nice and warm. Your guests can chat and relax while they soak their toes for about ten minutes. Keep the baths on hand to help rinse away the next two treatments.
Next, treat your guests to a detoxifying mask for the feet. This recipe makes one serving of mask, so you'll need to whip up a batch for each of your guests. You can make this up to a day in advance, storing the pre-mixed mask in your refrigerator until use. Leave the mask on for about 15 minutes before rinsing it in the foot baths.
Exfoliation is one of the most important steps in a good pedicure. This scrub packs a punch, making it great for feet. This recipe makes about two hefty servings of scrub, more than enough for two guests to give full attention to both feet. Again, this recipe can be made ahead of time. Just keep the finished product free from moisture until it's time to use it.
Bayberry Heel Butter (Make one batch for every two guests)
This moisturizing butter is perfect for keeping freshly cleaned feet well-conditioned. This recipe makes about four ounces, so we suggest splitting each batch into two parts, sending each of your guests home with their own two-ounce jar of heel butter. The butter should be applied liberally to freshly cleaned and dried feet. The balm will need time to cool and set in jars, so it should be made well in advance of the party.
