Pretty up your feet with this homemade scrub
The Christmas party season is approaching, which means glitz, glam, and a lot of getting ready.
Unlike other parts of our bodies, which are transformed with a dollop of moisturiser or a lick of make up, our feet need a bit of preparation to look their party best.
If you want your feet to sparkle like your dress this party season, start preparing now by pampering your feet to this simple homemade scrub.
You'll need salt or sugar, as well as coconut oil, avocado oil and a bit of honey.
All you need to do is mix the oils together - and then add in as much or as little of the sugar or salt as you like.
Salt or sugar
The salt and sugar are abrasive ingredients which create friction, making it easier to shed the dry dead skin cells from your feet.
Add more for particularly dry feet that need a really thorough exfoliation.
Coconut oil is one of the richest natural moisturisers available as it has high levels of fatty acids, so application of this moisture-rich substance should have even the driest feet smooth in no time.
You can even rub the oil onto your nails. This will keep them strong and stop any breaks before the big day. It's best to apply the coconut oil to nails before you add the salt or sugar though.
Coconut oil on the toe nails is also a great base for varnish.
In addition, it is thought that coconut oil has anti-perspiring properties - so it could even stop your feet smelling when you take off your party shoes.
This oil is ideal for those with feet that are older or particularly dry, even feet with eczema, owing to its super-moisturising properties.
Avocado oil increases elasticity of the skin as it contains collagen supporting amino acids and proteins.
It also regenerates connective skin tissue - which repairs dehydrated, scarred and mature skin.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
