When spring is coming, we look forward to swap out the boots and big socks for sandals.
On the other hand, after long months stuffed inside layers, our feet do not necessarily look good. They are dry, cracked and we do not want to show them to everyone ...
Before getting warm in the sun, we need to take care of our feet. There is of course the option of appointment for a pedicure, but it is expensive and not everything can afford this.
There is a cheaper and simpler solution and you have it in your bathroom, the antiseptic mouthwash: Listerine!
The combination of benzoic acid and ethanol in this mouthwash brand make it an ideal foot wash. This product will help you eliminate dead, dry skin and kill bacteria, fungi and germs that cause athlete's foot. And the feeling of freshness and pleasant tingling on your feet!
But do not just pour Listerine in a bucket. Here's how to proceed:
You will need:
1 cup (250 ml) Listerine
1 cup (250 ml) white or apple cider vinegar
2 cups (500 ml) warm water
How to do:
Mix all the ingredients: Listerine, apple cider vinegar and warm water, in a foot tub.
Soak your feet for an hour (grab a good book or watch TV!)
Admire your soft skin! Your feet are soft and nice, you're now ready for summer.
Note: Your feet might come away from the soak looking a little blue. It’s a temporary effect that will definitely fade away.
