Here’s how to make Listerine vinegar sugar scrub for the softest feet ever (and a doctor’s advice on the best method).
How to make Listerine vinegar sugar scrub for soft feet.
I am a believer in using a Listerine vinegar sugar scrub for soft feet. If you love the Listerine vinegar foot soak that I write about in this viral blog post, you will absolutely love this DIY Listerine vinegar foot scrub! It costs pennies to make with ingredients that I keep on hand, and it feels so fab and refreshing when massaged onto feet and legs. It is also a good scrub for elbows, knees, and other areas that are prone to dryness.
What makes Listerine and vinegar good for feet?
In my viral post about the Listerine vinegar foot soak, Dr. Jo Herzog discussed the beneficial properties of Listerine and vinegar. Thymol (in Listerine) can kill bacteria and fungi, and acetic acid (in vinegar) has antibacterial properties. Used together, they can soften dry skin, and can possibly eliminate mild athlete’s foot.
Which is better, a foot soak or a foot scrub?
For keeping feet soft and smooth, I use both a foot soak and a foot scrub. When I pamper my feet at home or give myself a pedicure, I start with the Listerine vinegar foot soak and follow with the scrub. It is cool, tingly, and so refreshing. I keep a jar of the scrub in the shower and try to use it several times a week. The more often I use it, the softer my feet stay.
Dr. Jo’s prescription for soft, smooth feet.
I recently bought this Ebanel 40 % Urea cream + 2% salicylic acid that received high ratings on amazon. I texted Dr. Jo and asked her if it would be beneficial for feet. She responded yes IF used the best way for optimal results. In the video below, I share her easy method to get the softest feet possible.
