With a cotton pad moistened with nail polish remover, start by cleaning your nails well, making sure that no residue is left behind. If you want, use a toothpick to clean underneath and in the corners. 

2. Foot exfoliation

Now it’s time for exfoliation. Apply the product to your hands and spread it all over your foot. Make circular motions all over, especially the heel. Dedicate yourself to this step because it is very important to even out the skin and remove dead cells. 

In case you don’t have an exfoliate, we have a tip: mix your favorite moisturizer with a little sugar and apply it on the skin. The result will be great!

3. Feet in the water

In the third step, you will heat some water (there is no exact amount, it should be enough to soak your feet) and add it to the basin. To avoid the risk of burning, add a little water at room temperature.

Now, place the chamomile sachets or foot bath mixture and soak your feet. This is a time to relax, so take the opportunity to remove the scrub and enjoy the warm feeling on your skin. 

Then just take your feet off and dry them gently.

4. Foot hydration

With dry feet, it’s time to hydrate them. The ideal is that you have a specific product for this, to have a better effect. The skin in this region is thicker than the rest of the body, so it is worth investing in a cream made especially for this area. 

If not, no problem! That won’t be a deterrent to not taking good care of you. 

Take advantage of the moment of hydration of the feet to massage the area very well. The skin will already be soft because of the exfoliate and therefore easier to handle. 

As soon as you finish the self-massage, it’s time to apply the plastic film all over the foot and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes, enough time for the cream to penetrate the skin better. To enhance, put on a sock next. 

Then remove everything and, if you want, finish with a little more self-massage. 

As we have seen, making a foot spa at home is not difficult and we bet you have all the materials at home, as many are very basic. Now, just add it to your self-care routine and do it every 15 days.
