DIY - FOOT LOTION (For Dry Skin)


Soft and beautiful feet are a dream of every woman. And to keep those feet beautiful, we need to take good care of them. Lately, I have started taking care of my feet which knowingly or unknowingly I had neglected a lot before. As a result, my feet are way too tanned and rough than other parts of the body, screaming care literally!

Today, I am going to share my two favourite homemade foot care lotion recipes with all of you; I hope you remember in my last RevAyur Foot Scrub review  post I had mentioned about this. After using for few months, the results are visible. It has drastically improved the texture of my feet and has made them soft, radiant, and smooth. Hope you would also like these DIY’s and find them helpful.Read ahead to know more!



Foot Lotion Recipe 1- 

To make this lotion at home, you require the following simple ingredients:-

  1. Olive Oil
  2. Glycerine
  3.  Essential oil (Any of your choice)

Olive Oil: Extracted from the olive fruit, this oil has many beauty benefits apart from cooking. It works as a moisturizer, promotes soft and smooth skin, acts as a treatment for irritated skin, eczema, and psoriasis. Hydroxytyrosol gives olive oil anti-inflammatory properties which help in healing rashes and sunburn.

Glycerine:  Glycerine act as humectants, that means it helps lock water and moisture into our skin. Besides moisturizing, it also lightens and brightens our skin tone, hydrates skin, provides glow and soothes dry, irritated skin.

Rose Essential Oil: This essential oil has antiseptic and antibacterial properties that help in treating acne and acne-prone skin. It promotes even skin tone and reduces skin imperfections. It also deeply moisturizes the skin and relaxes the mind relieving stress.


Methodology:

Take a jar or a bottle of your choice; pour Glycerin to half of the bottle.


Glycerin

Add an equal amount of Olive oil. Here I am using Figaro Olive oil which is a refined olive oil, not an Extra Virgin. You can use Extra Virgin Olive Oil which is best for skin.

Olive Oil
Now, shake the bottle vigorously to mix them up.

Mix ..Mix...Mix
Then add two drops of Aroma magic Rose essential oil, you can mix your favourite EO also (Rose/Lavender/Peppermint preferable).

Adding Rose Oil
Tadaa, your foot care lotion is ready! Isn’t it so easy to make huh??

Foot Lotion


Remember, before each application shake the mixture well as olive oil tends to float above glycerine (You can see that!). It seems hideous, but believe me, it works great.

Foot Lotion Recipe 2-


Now, this recipe is for those who are not in favour of using Olive oil and Rose oil.


Methodology:

In a bottle or jar, take an equal amount of Rosewater, Glycerin, and Lemon juice. Mix them all together.

Voila!! Your second foot lotion is ready.


If you want to add few more good ingredients, go ahead! To be honest, I owe my bestie a big time *thanks* for sharing these two incredible recipes with me. I have tried both of these lotions and got benefitted also. Though, I prefer the first lotion recipe since I’m addicted to Olive oil :D  So my gorgeous ladies, if you have dry, tanned feet like me, then please make these at home and let me know how you liked it.

See you soon.
