Foot beauty: 10 home remedies to try now
1. Listerine and vinegar
Listerine contains thymol and alcohol that will help fight nail fungus, soften, nourish, moisturize and soothe rough skin and prevent plantar warts.
Vinegar contains mild acids that help soften dry skin and exfoliate it.
To do this, simply prepare a foot bath by mixing one cup of listerine and two cups of water in 5 liters of water.
Soak your feet for 15 minutes and then rub them with a pumice stone to remove all dead skin.
Rinse with clean water before drying your feet and moisturizing the skin.
2. Rice flour, vinegar and honey
The rice flour is an organic exfoliant that allows a deep scrub. Thanks to its antiseptic properties, honey acts against bacteria and also brings an intense hydration of the skin.
Finally, vinegar, as mentioned above, softens very dry skin and facilitates the exfoliation of cracked heels.
Start by preparing your scrub by pouring 2 tablespoons of rice flour, half a tablespoon of honey and half a teaspoon of vinegar into a bowl. Mix actively until you have a smooth consistency.
Then soak your feet in a basin of warm water for about ten minutes and rub your heels with your preparation in order to eliminate the dead cells.
Repeat this process 2 to 3 times a week for beautiful feet in all circumstances.
