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.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
