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.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
