Funky Feet

Nice weather is here and everyone wants to ditch the socks.

Good – air those piggies out, I know mine are begging for attention. Make time to pretty up those gators who’ve been neglected all winter and do some maintenance like cutting back your claws, sanding down your inch thick callouses and digging out the funky goop hiding under your nails. Your sandals will appreciate it.

Then grab a friend for some deluxe funky feet pampering!

  1. Another great thing to add to a foot bath to rejuvenate tired feet: a couple drops of peppermint oil!! Don’t use too much, as it can irritate skin, but just a couple drops will have you ready to kick up your feet and boogy on!
    Also – for a yummy skin scrub: don’t toss your coffee grounds once you’ve brewed your java – mix them with some olive oil (approx. 1/4 cup coffee grounds & a couple tablespoons olive oil) & rub on your skin in nice circular motions. Rinse off & enjoy your fresh, summer-ready skin!

  2. I always use raw sugar. I find it has a much better effect than the white: since it isn’t ground as finely it will have more effect for exfoliation! ūüôā
