Spa Treatments #4Posted: November 19, 2010
Oh yes! I have found even more ways to give yourself spa like treatment at home for a fraction of the cost. We crave baby-soft feet and try to find ways to obtain just that. It can be a battle at times, but with some recent reading I have found and tested a sure way to accomplish soft feet with two simple things: lemon and sugar.
“A cool frozen lemon will reduce any swelling in your feet- and feel extra-refreshing and tingly,” says Camille Meyer, owner of TriBeCa MedSpa in New York City. “And the sugar crystals quickly and easily buff away any calloused skin, so your feet look smooth and pretty!”
Ready to try? Here’s how to do it!
1. Cut a lemon in half and pop it in the freezer for half an hour.
2. Dip the lemon halves into sugar and use to gently buff your feet, paying special attention to the heels and soles.
3. Rinse off feet with coll water and pat dry.
4. Massage in a tiny dollop of petroleum jelly to lock in the moisture and softness.
Yields: 1 application
That’s all there is to it. And this method truly works. I have suffered from dry, calloused soles for years and now do this tiny spa treatment at home at least 2-3 times a week. Now, my feet are soft, glowing, and pretty! I recommend trying this at home!
