It’s that time of year again! Fall is officially here, otherwise known as pumpkin season. And yes I still love a good pumpkin spice latte (I refuse to click on that article to be updated on how it pumpkin spice might kill me!).
Beach days and summer walks in the park have left my feet needed a little TLC. Luckily for me (and you), I’ve got the scoop on a DIY pumpkin foot scrub from celebrity nail artist and owner of As U Wish Nail Salon, Skyy Hadley.
“Pumpkins are more than just for carving on Halloween,” Skyy Hadley says. “They’re rich in vitamins and nutrients and can do wonders for your feet!” They contain “various enzymes that help nourish and brighten the skin, and just by adding raw sugar you have a perfect foot scrub,” she said.
Check out the recipe below.
PUMPKIN FOOT SCRUB
1 can pureed pumpkin (you can also substitute with a sweet potato)
1 cup plain yogurt
½ cup raw sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon olive oil
Mix pureed pumpkin in a bowl. Stir in a yogurt, honey, sugar and olive oil. Wash your feet in warm water, and while your feet are moist, apply the scrub using your hands in a circular motion. Massage the mask onto your feet for 10 minutes on each foot and remove with warm water and a washcloth.
I don’t know about you lovebugs but I am off to wash my feet! I promise not to eat this. But I could right?
