Foot Scrub

An exfoliating foot scrub feels heavenly on tired, sore feet. This is especially true when the scrub contains healing oils that provide a total aromatherapy experience. If you are prone to dry, cracked skin on your feet and heels, you might want to use a good scrub a few times a week for optimal treatment of this condition.

Keep in mind that a foot cream will be able to work its magic better if you rid your feet of dead, dry skin first with a foot scrub. This is especially important for people who live in cold climates and suffer from cracked feet more often than their warm climate counterparts. It is wise to apply an emollient foot cream right before bed every evening, as you won't have to worry about it rubbing off from walking or running.

Taking it a step further, some companies that create natural spa products sell foot mitts to be worn at night to lock in moisture. If you don't want to spend the money on such mitts, simply warm up a pair of your own socks in the microwave, and slip them on after you have used the foot scrub in the shower followed by the moisturizing cream. Your feet will feel incredibly soft and you won't be embarrassed to show them off once sandal weather sets in for the summer.

Exfoliate with Foot Scrub

Foot scrubs that contain peppermint, rosemary, lemon, and tea tree oils are invigorating and can wake up your tired feet. You may elect to apply a lavender scented cream to follow, which can induce sleepiness in you at bedtime. When you take care of your feet, they will be sure to thank you.
