01 Sep Take Care of those Sweet Feet! – Evelyn’s Secrets
TGIF! This week has been absolutely insane with all the rains and delays. I really hope all of you made it out of this monsoon madness safe and sound! It’s been long that I have seen the streets of Bombay this flooded and it reminded me on my initial days here almost seven years ago! At that point the drainage system was a terror and street were flooded with every rainfall. Uber taxis weren’t even invented yet and so I had to take a rickshaw to castings every day, no matter the weather! I can’t even count how many times I lost my slippers in the waves! It makes me smile to remember those times though! Happy memories of initial struggles make me appreciate my car so much more today! I went through my old pictures for y’all, and see what I found! Throwback to baby Evelyn’s first photoshoots!!
Today is Friday, so I want to share with you with a DIY beauty secret about how I keep my sweet feet neat, clean, and softer than a baby’s bottom in this rough weather. I’m going to give you the perfect foot spa recipe to exfoliate that monsoon wear and tear off your feet.
What you’ll need:
- 1 bucket of warm water
- Essential oil
- 2 heaping spoons of aloe vera gel
- 1 spoon Epsom salt, sea salt, or rock salt
- 1 spoon of oats
- Moisturizer of your choice
First, you’ll want to put one drop of the essential oil into the bucket of water and soak your feet for 5-10 minutes. My favourite oil to use for my feet is peppermint. This will loosen up some of the dirt and grime at the bottom of your feet and get you ready for the exfoliation part. In another bowl, you’ll want to mix the aloe vera gel, salt, and oats together to make a thick paste. Use your judgement while mixing everything together; you may need more or less depending on the consistency of the gel. Now, take your feet out of the bucket and scrub each foot for at least 5 minutes. Once you’re done, you can rinse of your feet, slather on a healthy amount of moisturiser, put on some socks and go to bed!
