One of the most useful parts of your body is your feet since this can let you carry yourself for many miles as well as maintain your posture. Sometimes they can be calloused or swollen due to rigorous activities. To give your feet the attention they deserve, you can try pampering them by making your own foot spa. Take a look at how you can do that below:
Find a relaxing space
Pick a relaxing place where you want to do your foot spa. It is best if you find somewhere you can dim the lights and put on music. You can also light up some candles if you want or choose a room where you can open the windows to let the natural light in. Make sure you have all the supplies you need for the foot spa near such as your towels, lotions, scrubs and slippers.
Fill a tub with warm water
Find a plastic tub that is big enough to fit both of your feet and can reach halfway up your calves. You can also find tubs that are specifically designed for foot spas to get a more luxurious feel. If you want, you can also add marbles or smooth stones at the bottom of the tub so you can roll your feet over them.
Add herbs, salts or oils
You can add a simple handful of Epsom salt or sea salt but you can also get creative by adding milk or bubble bath solution to it. If you want to soften your feet, you can try adding powdered milk and almond oil.
For visual appeal, you can try adding a handful of rose petals or mint. In addition, a few drops of essential oils can help to exude fragrance. Lavender, lemon and peppermint oil are some of the great options for foot massage.
Soak your feet
Sit down and pull the tub over then let your feet slip into it. Make sure your feet are clean by rinsing them off first. Soak your feet for 10 to 15 minutes while reading a book or closing your eyes and listening to music. You can also do your foot spa while having another treatment such as a face or eye mask.
Exfoliate your feet
Using a scrub or a manicure brush, exfoliate your feet after soaking them for 10 to 15 minutes. If you want a fancier experience, you can try buying a foot scrub instead. Make sure you focus on your heels since these are where your skin is most calloused. For heavily calloused heels, try using a pumice stone. If you use a foot scrub, rinse your feet first before soaking them back into the tub.
