Benefits of Lemon
Make Your Feet More Attractive
Do you have rough, scaly or calloused feet? The solution might be right within your own kitchen. Lemons contain citric acid or vitamin C which acts as a natural exfoliant to slough off dead skin cells, enhance skin renewal, and brighten dark areas. To harness the power of lemons to make your feet pretty and sandal worthy, there are two things you can do
Make a lemon foot soak by combining the juice of 2 to 3 lemons with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and ? cup of milk. Add this mixture to a basin full of warm water. Soak your feet for about 20 minutes,then use a foot file to file off any dead skin from your feet, especially on areas like your heels and the balls of your feet.
You can also create a lemon and sugar scrub to exfoliate your toes. Combine two cups of brown sugar with about ? cup of olive oil. Make sure the mixture is soft but not too oily. Then add several drops of lemon essential oil. Use this as a scrub after soaking your feet, and top off the homemade foot spa with some lemon-scented lotion! Not only will you have amazingly soft feet, but they?ll smell like summer as well.
