“Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.”
Our whole body needs pampering from time to time.
I don’t know about you but I always look for face masks, body scrubs, I don’t think much about feet. I apply a lot of cream on my feet and put on socks overnight and that’s it.
Now I decided to find some DIY.
There are so many recipes on the internet and I decided to make this one.
Lemon, banana and olive oil (sea salt) scrub
Lemons are rich in Vitamin C, pectin, flavonoid antioxidants, B-vitamins, potassium, and calcium. Their properties destroy bad bacteria and allow good bacteria to flourish in the body. The vitamin C is great for your skin. It acts as a natural exfoliant, enhances skin renewal, and brighten dark areas.
Banana The high potassium content, vitamins, and natural oils will soften the skin.
Olive oil is loaded with powerful antioxidants, can reduce inflammation. Olive oil contains vitamins A, D, E, and K. Some of these vitamins may be beneficial for the skin.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/2 lemon
- 2 tbsp. sea salt
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
How to make
- Mash the bananas
- Add the lemon juice and the rest of the ingredients.
- Mix it all up
- Massage the scrub into your feet (leave for about 10-15 minutes)
- Rinse (you can apply lotion by your choice)
This is a really good recipe. I like the combination of these ingredients.
I even tried brown sugar instead of salt because the sugar is bigger and I get a better scrub.
Do something nice for your feet and make this recipe. I didn’t regret it I think neither will you.
P.s.make sure you are not allergic to the ingredients before use.
