One of our go-to treatments for dry skin...

SO....you're getting ready for your vacation or tropical getaway and day dreaming of that gorgeous beach right now...soaking in some of that FABULOUS SUNSHINE VITAMIN, diving into clear BLUE ocean water and sinking your toes into the SAND!

AHHH. RELAXATION. MUCH needed RELAXATION!

The only real piece of clothing you need is a bathing suit...

Now back to reality and your feet are in need of a little TLC to look as pretty as you expect to feel...and more importantly be healthy and happy (i.e. no dry, cracked heals or rough skin) to help avoid infections and discomfort issues!)
Our feet are often one of the most neglected areas of the body ~ as a result the skin on our feet can become dry, cracked, rough and painful...and anything but beautiful.

We have a solution for this (along with ENSURING that we are drinking water ALL throughout the day for ADEQAUTE HYDRATION!).

AT HOME COCONUT OIL FOOT TREATMENTS

One of our go-to treatments for dry skin...

COCONUT OIL ~ It contains medium-chain fatty acids that we LOVE, and it helps the body to retain it's moisture content. Coconut Oil is quick to melt down with the warmth of your hands and very easy to massage into the skin!

COCONUT OIL FOOT SOAK:
▪Fill a footbath or large bowl with warm water
▪Add 1-2 tsp. (heaping...who are we kidding! 🥥) of Coconut Oil to the water
▪ Add one or two drops of your favourite essential oil ~ our favourites are @youngliving LAVENDER or EUCALYPTUS
▪ Soak your feet for 20 minutes while you sip a glass of wine, read a book, relax
▪ Gently dry your feet by patting them with a towel

COCONUT OIL SUGAR FOOT SCRUB (use 1 x per week):
COMBINE
▪ 2 Tbsp. Course Sugar * our FAV
OR
▪ 2 Tbsp. Coarse Salt (do not use salt on irritated or cut skin)
WITH
▪7 Tbsp. softened Coconut Oil (not melted)
▪1/2 tsp. Essential Oil ~ we love adding Lemon, Rosemary, Eucalyptus or Lavender for the BEAUTIFUL scents (but use YOUR favourite EO...whatever it may be!)
▪MIX ALL OF THE INGREDIENTS together with your hands or a spoon
▪Pour into a dark, airtight container
TO USE:
▪ Massage into feet (and legs) while you are in the bath
▪ Rinse with warm water
▪ Towel dry

COCONUT OIL/EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL (EVOO) FOOT CREAM:
▪Sit down in a relaxing area
▪Apply a generous amount of Coconut Oil, EVOO and 2-3 drops of your choice of essential oils (LAVENDER is our ultimate FAV) to your feet
▪Wrap your feet in warm towels or wrap
loosely with cling wrap/film
▪Leave on for as long as possible ~ overnight is BEST
*you can also/alternatively put on cotton socks if sleeping with coconut oil on your feet!

Be PREPARED to have GORGEOUSLY SMOOTH and BEAUTIFUL feet...not just for your vacation...
but while you are at home dreaming about one too!
