Moreover, you only need 2 of them. There are plenty home remedies on the Internet but they are not as efficient as they claim to be. Check out these 2-ingredients foot soak and scrub remedies and get rid of dead skin. Keep on reading!
Before we start the treatment, you need to gather your supplies. Now, for the big reveal, the ingredients you need are Listerine and vinegar. Really simple, isn’t it? Moreover, you need to know a few information on these ingredients and why they work.
For starters, Listerine contains Thymol, an ingredient responsible for killing bacteria and fungi from your feet. This ingredient will be highly effective because it will get your rid of any germ there are.
Regarding vinegar, we already know its amazing properties. Thus, vinegar has antibacterial properties which will help you by removing any dead skin. This ingredient will make it easier to exfoliate.
Now, it is time to see the two home remedies you can easily prepare.
1. Listerine foot soak
For this home remedy, you only need 1 cup of Listerine and 1 cup of Vinegar. You can mix them in your bathtub or you could use a basin. Also, add about 2 cups of warm water, a quantity based solely on how much you need. For example, if your feet present a more serious problem, you can increase the quantity of these ingredients.
Then, all you have to do is soaking your feet in the basin or in the tub for about 15 minutes. Again, if the problem is more serious, you could also use a pumice to scrub your feet and to remove any dead skin there is. Just like that, you will have the desired soft feet.
However, keep in mind that this home remedy is quite effective instantly. Thus, if your feet are quite dried, you will need to repeat this procedure for at least 2 or 3 times, that’s all it takes. If you need more time for this treatment to work, you could also repeat the procedure for 4-5 times but make sure to notice the results.
2. Listerine foot scrub
For this home remedy to work, you will also need a few other ingredients. But don’t worry, you already have them in your home because I am talking about Epsom salt and a jar. Thus, all you have to do is mix together 2 cups of Epsom salt, 1/4 cup of Listerine and 1/2 vinegar into a jar. After you mixed them well, all you have to do is use this scrub right when you are in the shower.
I also like this home remedy because it is quicker and it will exfoliate the dead skin completely, due to the Epsom salt. It will also remove any odor there is, leaving your feet soft and ready for the summer.
In conclusion, now you have two home remedies based on the most effective ingredients. If you like to relax soaking your feet in a basin, then the first treatment will be perfect for you. However, if you want something quicker, you could use the scrub right in the shower. No matter the approach, your feet will be completely dead skin free, which makes some really happy feet!
