There’s nothing pretty about cracked heels. Having dry feet can also be painful, uncomfortable, and extremely inconvenient. If you’re someone who doesn’t have the time or money to get regular pedicures, you can still give your feet some TLC from your own home’s comfort with these easy and affordable DIY foot masks.
Oatmeal and Brown Sugar Foot Mask
Using a food processor, blitz together a quarter of a cup brown sugar and a quarter of a cup of oats. Once mixed, add these ingredients into a bowl and add a tablespoon of olive oil, a tablespoon of lemon juice, and a quarter of a cup of honey. Give everything a good stir, and then divide the mixture into two plastic ziplock bags. Pop your feet into the bags, and gently massage the paste in. Leave for approximately 10 minutes and then rinse with warm water.
Ultra-Hydrating Overnight Foot Mask
If you’re seriously suffering from dry, flaky feet, then you’re definitely in need of this ultra-hydrating overnight foot mask treatment. Just mix together a tablespoon of cocoa butter, a tablespoon of olive oil, and three vitamin e capsules. Have a shower or a bath, and while your pores are still open, gently massage this mask into your feet and cover with socks. Leave on overnight and rinse in the morning with warm water for silky smooth and moisturized feet!
Cucumber Foot Mask
This cooling mask is perfect for soothing tired feet at the end of a long day. Using a blender, mix together two small cucumbers, three tablespoons of olive oil, and one lemon juice. Once blended, remove the mixture and distribute evenly into two freezer bags. Put one bag on each foot and tie them into place using rubber bands. Let the mask sit for 5-10 minutes and then rinse with warm water for soft, refreshed feet.
