{Homemade} Sugar Foot Scrub

Hello!~ Summer’s right around the corner so it’s time to get your feet ready for the beach, pool, and your favorite pair of sandals. 🙂 Moisturizer is important, but it all starts with a good exfoliation. Here’s a really quick, but effective homemade foot scrub. Enjoy and good luck!

Ingredients for 1 use: 1/2 cup of oil (baby or olive oil) and 1 cup of sugar.

Directions: Combine ingredients and mix well with a spoon. Use the scrub in the shower, rinse well, and pat dry. Pay special attention to dry, cracked heels. The sugar will scrub away dead skin cells and the oil will clean and moisturize!

Additional notes: The mixture will last a few days (the sugar will start to dissolve in the oil). In addition to getting your feet sandal ready, give your body a good exfoliation with a homemade body scrub DIY (tutorial here). Exfoliation is especially important if you plan to use a self tanner! It’ll help give you an even all over tan.

Oh, and in case you’re looking for some cute shoes… here’s some of my current favorites!

Good luck. Until next time, stay pretty… inside and out!

      You may want to pair a gentle foot scrub like this one and use a foot file to really get a deep exfoliation on your foot. As for the tanned skin, this will take time! Continue to use spf when your out and exfoliate 2-3 times a week!

    I’ve used this one for my legs lately for crazy smooth legs for ages longer. You just shave as normal, scrub with the sugar scrub, then use an old (doesnt matter if its dull) razor and go over your legs again to remove the sugar. It makes your legs really smooth and i find they stay that way for up to 4 days.

    I used coconut oil and added a few drops of coconut essence…. and I use it on my whole body. Leaves you feeling soft, clean and smelling great (like summer)

    Try adding a drop of orange food coloring and a sprinkle of brown sugar!

    What do you use to rub it on your feet? Your hands or a washcloth or what?

      I just use my hands to massage/rub my feet with the scrub. Good luck!~
