1. Coffee foot scrub & soak

Are you a barefoot kind of person? I love to shed my shoes as often as possible. Now is time to soften these buddies and give them lovely cuddles.

First, add 1 cup of white vinegar and 1/4 cup sea salt or Epsom salt to a bowl of warm water. (I do this in the tub and sit on the side with a magazine.) Add a few drops of sage essential oil if you want. Sit for 10 minutes and let the acidic water soften your soles.

I’ve combined a mask with a scrub so you can apply it, finish reading your magazine and then let the salt and coffee do their scrubbing magic. I love using coffee grounds because it’s cheap and eco-friendly and the caffeine can help tone your legs.

  • 1/4 cup fresh coffee grounds

  • 1/4 cup sea salt
