Today, on OiB I will discuss about feet spas. There have been many feet spas that are too good for bringing about the natural and organic wellbeing of one’s feet. Feet are undoubtedly one of the most important parts of the body that represent both beauty as well as comfort. There are many people who can judge the habits of a person by the way they pamper and take care of things as little as their feet skin, nails etc.

Moreover, they also contribute to the comfort because if a person’s feet are well taken care of then they can feel painless and truly comfortable throughout their whole body.

This is why many foot spas have opened. These foot spa have their own natural settings and have become very popular as well. The thing is this that these foot spas can also be done at home to provide added comfort to them overall.

What Is the Ideology Behind Feet Spa Treatments?

Foot spa treatment is basically a very effective as well as natural and organic technique that is also very relaxing at the very same time. Your feet are soaked into warm water that has salt and many essential oils in it. The feet are then detoxified, scrubbed as well as massaged well. This also includes cleaning as well as putting nail pint, doing pedicures, or putting foot lotion simply as well.

Your DIY Feet Spa

A foot spa can be down twice once in every two to three days at home too. It requires very basic essentials like nail clippers, cuticle pushers, scissors, cuticle nippers, pumice stone, buffer, nail filers etc. There are also some advanced tools that can include foot baths, pedicure foot machine and such.

Saturday Relaxation with Ginger and Dead Sea Salt

  • Peppermint

Have a bowl of warm water with some scented bubbles in it and peppermint oil besides lavender oil for extra soothing effects. Soak your feet for five to ten minutes and then dry them with a clean and soft towel. Next you should clean of any dirt from your nails by clipping them, filing them, or cutting the cuticles as well.

  • Almond and Milk

You can soak your feet simply in the mixture of almond and milk. This will help to have soft feet. However, for this foot spa DIY treatment, the feet should be clean already. You can also add in 1 cup of powdered dairy or soy milk or almond oil as alternative too. A 10 min soaking action will do wonders for your feet and you do not need to rinse as well.

  • Epsom Salts

You can make any DIY foot spa mixture and add just one handful of Epsom salt in it. This will greatly help to reduce the swelling of your feet in no time.

3 Easy DIY Carrot Masks You Will Love!

Carrot, Lemon and Olive Oil Face Mask

Step 1: Prepare the mixture

Peel and boil one large carrot until tender (when a fork can easily pierce through it, it’s ready). Mash the carrot with a fork. We want a creamy consistency.

Now, add the following:

  • 1/2 tbsp of Organic Honey.
  • 1/2 tbsp. of Extra virgin olive oil.

NOTE: If your skin is oily, you may omit the extra virgin olive oil.

  • A few drops of organic lemon juice. How many you may ask? Read below 😉
Olive Oil | OrganicIsBeautiful

Basically, your skin type will depend on the amount of lemon juice you add in. Because lemon juice is a natural astringent, you should know that the oilier your skin, the more lemon you want in your mask! Simple. ). If you have dry skin, add about 8 drops of lemon and if you have oily skin, add up to 1 tablespoon.

Step 2: Check consistency

The mixture shouldn’t be too clumpy or too runny. If the mix is too thick, you can add in a bit more extra virgin olive oil or water to thin it out. You can add a bit more honey to the mix to give it a thicker, paste-like texture.

Cool down. Let the mixture cool down so that the temperature is comfortable on your skin.

Step 3: Mask time

Let the fun part begins!  Apply the carrot mask onto a clean and bare face, even your neck if you wish, but avoid the eye and mouth area.

Step 2: Add the secret oil.

Step 3: Pamper your face.

My favourite part. You will see the result straight away! Apply face mask to face, avoiding the eyes and mouth. Allow to set about 15-20 minutes. Don’t forget to wash face with warm water, and gently wipe off any remaining bits with a wash cloth.

NOTE: If you need a moisturizer, apply a little coconut oil or olive oil.

Carrot and Avocado Face Mask

Step1: Peel, boil and drain

Pick 2 or 3 large carrots in your kitchen and slice them into small rounds. Boil the carrots in a small pot until they’re easily pierced with a fork. Drain the water away and pour the cooked carrot slices into a small bowl.

Time to get exciting and … messy! Oops! 😉 Mash the carrots thoroughly with a fork.

Step 2: Get the right mixture

  • 4 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil with the carrots1/2 tablespoon at a time, until the mixture has reached a smooth, creamy consistency.
  • 2-3 spoonfuls of the avocado as you go along as well. If you prefer a slightly different consistency, simply adjust the amount of oil to suit your preference.
