I’m not a soaking in the tub kind of person, so I don’t use bath salts. However, I do like to soak my feet. My feet get dirty, sore and dry all the time. I wear flip flops most of the time, pretty much year round. My feet are always exposed to the elements, but I don’t want them to look like they are.
First of all just let me say, to combat dry skin anywhere takes more than just external skin care. It takes hydrating your body from the inside with plenty of water, eating healthy, exercise to keep everything circulating and then adding nutrients to the outside.
I like a simple Lavender Salt soak. It’s easy to make and does wonders for my feet. I follow up with a little scrub or pumice rub and some foot cream massaged in and topped off with a pair of white cotton socks. Ah… It doesn’t get much better than that…unless chocolate is involved.
This jar contains:
Epsom Salt-4 cups. (Magnesium Sulfate) Draws out toxins, regulates enzymes, heals skin, releases magnesium into your body (which most people are lacking), helps reduce pain, swelling and improves absorption of nutrients. *Having adequate amounts of calcium helps absorb magnesium, which helps prevent tooth decay. To name a few.
Dried Lavender- 1/2 cup and Lavender Essential Oil (get it here)- 10 drops- Calming, anti-asthmatic, relieves itchiness, rejuvenating, anti-depressant and antiseptic…and so much more.
Using any of the follow essential oils can add to your soak accordingly.
