Simple Scrub for Beautiful Feet & Legs

I love pedicures!  I even have my husband hooked on them now.  😉

Unfortunately, I can’t go as often as I would like to have them done…there just isn’t enough time and having a pedicure every week is probably a bit excessive.  LOL!

But, that doesn’t mean that I can’t have the benefits of having a pedicure every week.  Here is a super simple scrub recipe for beautiful feet & legs:Foot Bath

  • 1/2 cup body wash (any brand, fragrance you choose)
  • 1/8 – 1/4 cup Epsom salt or sea salt – adjust according to how intense you want the scrub to be…the more salt, the more intense

Simply mix the 2 ingredients, apply to feet and legs (top, bottom, front, back), and scrub, scrub, scrub.

This will take all the dead, dried skin off your feet and legs.  You’ll love how soft and smooth your legs are afterwards!

Go ahead…pamper yourself with a weekly scrub to your feet and legs.  Enjoy!
