It’s always kind of rough when our feet come out of winter hibernation. While we love that we’re transitioned out of riding boots and into toe-revealing sandals or strappy heels, we’d be lying if we said that our feet are ready for all that attention.We can always go and get a fancy pedicure to take care of those calluses and rough patches, but why waste the money when we’ve got everything we need in our kitchens? Tabitha Blue shows us how to make an at-home soak out of milk and baking soda that’s frugal
Truth be told, they’re probably in pretty rough shape.
Not only is our chipped, dull polish probably from early October (the last time you thought MAYBE you could get away with open-toed booties) but the calluses on our toes and heels are ROUGH. Literally.
We can always go and get a fancy pedicure to take care of those rough patches, but why waste the money when we’ve got everything we need in our kitchens? Tabitha Blue shows us how to make an at-home soak out of two kitchen staples that’s frugal and fancy.
The two ingredients? Two to four cups of milk and a handful of baking soda. That’s it!
The two ingredients might seem weird, but they both serve an important purpose, and they do it in an all-natural way. For example, the lactic acid found in milk helps to get rid of the dead skin on your feet, leaving those callused spots nice and smooth. The baking soda acts as a scrub, which will help break down any tougher calluses that just soaking can’t dissolve.
The first step is to heat up your two to four cups of milk. As if soaking your feet in milk wasn’t weird enough, now it’s going to be warm milk! But as strange as it seems, it truly works.
You’re going to soak your feet in the warm milk for ten minutes total, but start with five. After the initial five minutes, you’ll use your baking soda. To see exactly how the baking soda works and the final step of the DIY spa treatment, you have to watch the video below.
For anyone who’s planning on wearing open-toed shoes this spring and summer, this tutorial is essential. Without a doubt, it’s the quickest and most effective way to improve your feet for the least amount of money. If you can get past the whole soaking your feet in 1% thing, it’s the perfect at-home pedicure!
