Soft Foot Scrub

Soft Foot Scrub

After a recent foot surgery, I have discovered what anyone who has ever been in a cast already knows. After just a few weeks, the skin itches like crazy while it sheds and peels. It is maddening to have that itching sensation that just won’t go away.

I now feel intensely guilty for teasing my sister so much when I was a little girl when she broke her arm. Boy, if I had only known.

Today I wanted to make a foot scrub that would be gentle and soft on my tender skin while alleviating some of that itching.

Join me in the blog kitchen as I craft a clay and sugar scrub that is great for tender – or even ticklish – skin!

NOTES

I used regular sugar, but if you want something with a finer texture, I would recommend either grinding up the sugar you have or finding fine bakers sugar. I also recommend packaging the finished scrub in plastic rather than glass. Wet hands on glass make for a slippery and dangerous combination in the bathroom. Remember, safety first!
