Are you uncomfortable to wear your pretty sandals in the summer because of the dead skin from your feet? Have they become dry and chapped? This situation is usually due to a buildup of dead skin on the feet. Thus, in this article, I want to share with you two of the best solutions that worked for me. Keep reading and see what I am talking about!
The rough layer of skin is the result of accumulated dead skin cells on your feet. In winter the excess layer of dead skin is often prone to dryness and chapping. Because feet have no oil glands, the skin on your feet is naturally dry. Consequently, you need to keep them well-moisturized in order for the skin to stay soft and healthy.
Thus, for these DIY Epsom salt foot bath and aspirin-lemon paste methods to get rid of dead skin from your feet, you will need the following ingredients:
– one cup of Epsom salt
– 10 tablets of Aspirin
– ½ lemon juice
– a moisturizer
– plastic wrap
– a towel
– a small bowl
– and a pair of cotton socks
1. Get ready for the Epsom salt foot soak
– Fill the small tub with warm water.
– Add 1 cup of Epsom salt and stir until the salt is completely dissolved.
– Soak your feet in it for 30 to 40 minutes.
– Wash your feet thoroughly.
2. Apply the aspirin-lemon paste
– Put 7 to 10 aspirin tablets in a small bowl.
– Squeeze the juice of ½ lemon into the bowl.
– Stir until the tablets have completely dissolved and you have a smooth paste.
– Then, rub the aspirin-lemon paste on the rougher patches of skin on your feet.
– In order to let the aspirin loosen up the dead skin, wrap your feet with plastic wrap to seal in the paste.
– Keep the wrap on for 4 to 5 hours.
After the 5 hours have passed, remove the plastic wrap and wash your feet with cool water. Then, gently dry your feet with a soft towel. Now, you can apply a thick layer of moisturizer to further soften and moisturize your skin. To seal the moisturizer, put on your cotton socks and go to bed. You can repeat these 2 methods every day for 1 week to completely remove dead skin from your feet.
