Foot Scrub


Like other parts of the body, the skin of the foot needs to be cared for to repair the damage of daily use. Foot scrubs help to exfoliate the rough skin of the foot, removing dead cells and allowing new, healthy skin cells to look and feel their best.

There are many ways to make foot care products at home, and these recipes for lime, sugar, and peppermint foot scrub are sure to help soften foot skin. Other scrubs focus on exfoliating, helping to get tired feet ready for sandal season when they will be on display. These recipes are just a few examples of the many different ways people save money and care for their feet at the same time.

Home remedies can even be combined with commercial foot scrubs to balance the benefits of each. When selecting a foot scrub in the store, try rubbing a little into the hand to check for skin irritation. Scrubs are, by their nature, a little abrasive, and shoppers will want to select a scrub that is right for their skin type. Also, keep in mind that many scrubs contain sand, which can clog drains. Use a paper towel to remove the excess when using these scrubs to avoid problems.

For really tough feet, consider using a foot spa in conjunction with a scrub. Scrubs and pumice stones can help to remove old skin, while foot spas help to soften and rejuvenate. This may seem like an expensive option at first, but remember that a little goes a long way with foot scrubs, and a well made foot spa should be built to last. Some foot spas are even built using user replaceable parts, allowing them to last a lifetime and beyond.
