Do you wear sandals a lot in the summer? Or do you go barefooted? I’m not much into shoes myself, and wear sandals every chance I get, or better yet have bare feet during the summer months.
But it seems like the less I wear shoes, the more the skin on my feet gets dried out.
Something I stumbled onto is a simple foot soak that really softens cracked or calloused skin.
All you need is warm water and Epsom salts. Get some kind of shallow pan and fill it with water as warm or as hot as you like it, then add 1/4 – 1/2 of the salt. Aaaah, soak your feet and enjoy being pampered a bit.
When the water has cooled, or you’ve soaked your feet for at least 10 minutes, dry them off and be amazed at how hydrated your skin will look and feel!
Super simple and inexpensive self-care. Add clay facials and essential oil steaming and it could be fun to invite your daughters or friends to join you to have a fun home spa afternoon!
I hope you have a great summer on the horizon!
P.S. For steaming: Put very hot water in a metal bowl, scatter a few drops of your favorite essential oils or blends on top. Then,, quickly tent your head with a towel and with your face in the rising steam, take deep calming breaths. Aaaaah.
