Low on cash and want to refresh your feet and last months pedicure?
Soak your cares away with Epsom salt and Peppermint essential oil or fresh peppermint or mintleaves from your garden in a warm water foot bath. It is very soothing and cools the skin especially after a long hot day!
Soaking your feet for 15 minutes with Epsom salts also refreshes the soles and take down any swelling of the ankles and feet.
Clean well around your nails and toes with a nail brush,orange wood stick and file any rough nail edges.
When done apply a hydrating salve or lotion like Smith’s RoseBud Salve. It is fabulous for your feet,heels,cuticles,lips,brows and unwanted hair around your hairline. Celebrities and models love this product.
Skip the nail polish if you’d like or apply a fabulous color. It is fine to give your nails a vacay from polish.
As a skin therapist I love to use and professionally recommend a spritz of rosewater from a pretty spray bottle. It makes your skin happy and plumps your skin up. It will make your makeup glide on like silk when used on a cotton pad before your makeup is applied. I also use it on TV or on brides to set the makeup and for the face to look soft and not so powdered.This is an old Victorian period beauty secret.I am happy some old traditions and beauty secrets do not go away.Smells like you visited a rose garden…you’ll be addicted. Unless of course you’re not a rose fan. Pretty amazing stuff!
You can DIY (you know I love to whip up things in my kitchen) but why bother if you can buy it already made just for you.
