- Step 1: Exfoliate
- Step 2: Care for your Cuticles
- Step 3: Hydrate!
Step 1: Exfoliate
First thing is first when preparing your feet for fun summer weather… get rid of the roughness.
This lavender-mint sugar scrub is perfect for helping remove dead skin from your feet. Also works great in the shower on your whole body too… fantastically cooling!
What you’ll need:
We get our sugar from Costco (organic sugar by the huge bag). We alternate from the V6 carrier oil on occasion. Olive oil works great. So does avocado oil, and are relatively cheap to get… we also purchase those from Costco.
This recipe is fairly easy to do… just place your ingredients in a jar and mix. I highly recommend putting the sugar in the bowl first, and then adding the oils because it usually creates less of a mess for me.
** Quick Tip: use a glass jar, not plastic
Step 2: Cuticle Care
Cuticle health is necessary for healthy, happy toenails. We love using a little Tea Tree essential oil in the process. Just roll or swipe a little on before you use a towel or cuticle tool to help push those back.
Step 3: Hydrate!
This foot balm is a great recipe to pamper your feet and help them from drying out and cracking.
For this recipe we usually do most of our shopping over on Amazon. Sometimes I buy coconut oil from Costco, but if I don’t have any on hand I’ll snag some with my order. We get our essential oils here.

A quick note about rough feet…
After having developed and put into remission issues with my thyroid, I’ve learned that one symptom of hypothyroidism is having perpetual rough feet. This isn’t your skin issue that you can’t get rid of… it is a symptom of more. I highly recommend talking with a naturopath, homeopath, or functional medicine doctor to have your levels checked and develop a solid plan.
If you’re dealing with that, whether you’ve been diagnosed or not, I just want you to know you are not alone. I’ve gone through the gambit of chronic autoimmune health crises, and returned on the other side with completely putting it all into remission, 100% naturally, and 100% DIY. Please don’t lose hope. If you need a cheerleader, a friend, or some ideas on what helped me and could help you, please feel welcome to reach out to me.
