We all know that we work our feet too hard and pay too little attention to them. So, I decided to share my at-home pedicure. I love this treatment and you can change it up depending on your needs and how much time you have.

You need:
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 5 cups water (this depends on the size of you container, you may need to increase these)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (brown or white or you can even you sea salt)
  • 2 tbsp sweet almond oil (or substitute what you have such as olive oil; or you could just use Honu Naturals Pedi-Cure Foot Scrub)
  • Good moisturizer (such as Honu Naturals' Pedi-Cure Foot Balm)
  • Big bowl to put feet in
  • Lots of towels

  1. In a large pan warm the water and milk. You want this to put warm enough to relax and soothe your tired feet, but not so hot it scalds your poor tootsies.
  2. The best place for this is in your tub, but I hate staring at my tile. So, I lay out my towels in the living room so I can watch tv. Place your big bowl in the middle of your towels to you can sit comfortably while your feet soak.
  3. In a smaller bowl, mix sugar and oil until you have a paste. Place near the big bowl with extra towels. Put your moisturizer there too. Now you are ready to get started.
  4. Go get your warmed water and milk mixture and carefully pour into your big bowl to soak your feet it.
  5. Soak your feet for about 10 minutes.
  6. After soaking, remove your feet and scoop some of your sugar mixture. Use this to gently scrub your entire foot. Don't forget all the rough spots and between your toes. I do this over the bowl to catch falling sugar.
  7. Put your feet back in the milk mixture to rinse. Remove feet and pat (not rub) dry.
  8. Finish with a rich creamy moisturizer.
  9. Enjoy your soft and beautiful feet.
