DIY Foot Pamper and Pedicure
Watch my video tutorial below!



















Following an unintentional theme this month of DIY Beauty Recipes, I bring you today yet another beauty (intentional pun there). Sometimes you just gotta show your feet some love and an at home, DIY foot pamper followed by your favourite polish can hit just that spot on a night when you're needing some 'you' time.

Here's how I did mine the other night!

What you'll need:
Epsom Salts
Baking Soda
Coconut Oil
Peppermint (or your preferred) Essence
Your Favourite Nail Polish of the moment



















Steps:
So, the first step is to pre-prepare the recipes you'll need throughout your pamper session.

Foot Soak Recipe
1       Cup Epsom Salts
1/4    Cup Baking Soda
Dash of Essence

Steps:

  • Into a bowl or jar, combine together 1 Cup Epsom Salts and 1/4 Cup Baking Soda. The Epsom Salts help to relax sore and aching feet, while the baking soda helps exfoliate and relieve any lingering smells
  • We'll also use essence in this soak but, we add that at the time because otherwise, it will start to react with our baking soda

Foot Scrub Recipe
1      Cup Epsom Salts
1/2   Cup Coconut Oil
Dash of Essence
Food Colouring (optional)

Steps:
  • Into a mixing bowl, combine your Epsom Salts and Coconut Oil. Your oil will start to soften as its being worked and become easier to stir
  • To this, add in the essence of your choice and mix well
  • And lastly, food colouring is completely optional but, its a nice touch if you're making this again as a gift or, are wanting to keep some and have it seen in your bathroom. 

Pedicure Procedure!
  • The first step is start from a blank canvas and remove any existing polish from your nails
  • Next, create a warm foot bath using either your tub or a large container. Although I'm in my bath, I'm using a separate container so the Foot Soak is more concentrated
  • Sprinkle over your bath soak and enjoy the warm water for a few minutes
  • Next, is the fun part. Take a big handful of the scrub you made earlier and work it in and around your feet, concentrating on your toes, calf muscles are of course, those heels
  • Once done, rinse the scrub off well and dry
  • At this point, now is time with your nails nice and soft from their soak to trim and push back your cuticles before moving forward
  • With clean scrubbed feet, take a moment to yourself and whip out your favourite polish colour. (I used Rimmel's 60 Seconds Polish in 320 Rapid Ruby which, I wasn't all that fussed with - you can read about it HERE)
  • And last but not least, take any extra coconut oil you may have and rub that into your feet for a moisturising finish to your DIY Foot Pamper
  • With any remaining scrub you have left over, be sure to keep it in an airtight container for next time and it will last you a good 6 months
