Best Foot Scrub
5 reasons why choosing the best makes all the difference

The best foot scrub will not only exfoliate, but will also nourish and soften the feet, allowing them to feel refreshed and revitalized, helping them to look amazing.

The one thing that is most important as you care for your feet is the scrub.

Using a good foot scrub helps to exfoliate the dead skin on the feet, and if it includes a good oil, helps to nourish the feet, leaving them soft and beautiful.

Sugar and salt scrubs are both great for use on the feet because they both dissolve in water easily, and using a pumice stone leaves behind the grainy residue that is hard to clean up and nasty to look at, and can also clog your drains.

If you worry about the health of your feet, dryness, foot fungus, cracked heels, or other foot disorders, a good scrub will certainly help. However, if you have open wounds, or  any kind of broken skin, you should consult a doctor before using a scrub.

There are many different types of scrubs including salt, sugar, coffee, pumice, or even nutshell. All have an exfoliant effect, and when rubbed on the feet, remove the dead skin.


5 Reasons to Choose the Best Foot Scrub

  1. Dissolves easily - Salt and sugar are the easiest as they dissolve in water
  2. Natural oils -  nourishes skin - usually with a natural oil, leaving skin feeling healthier
  3. Texture - the thicker, the better, as it will remove more of the dead skin, and leave softer feet
  4. Scent - scrubs with pure essential oils are always best
  5. Added Ingredients - typically just salt or sugar, base oil, and scent (essential oils) should be the main ingredients, with very few other products included

Using a foot scrub and lotion on a regular basis helps to keep feet healthy and looking nice, helping you feel healthy and well-groomed.

About Me

A few things about me and the creation of Massage Education Guide....

After 20 years of practicing massage, I decided to create an online resource for people who want to learn about massage, and how to relax our minds to release anxiety and stress.

I have had many clients come for massage, only to discover they just needed to talk, or they needed to cry, and let go of pain or worry, or stress, in a place they felt safe.

Finding a way to relax our minds, and  release stress and tension, is critical for a healthy immune system, as we find our way through this pandemic.

Now, because of this virus, I teach folks about the benefits of massage, essential oils, body scrubs, bath bombs, and other make-at-home goodies that help us de-stress in the comfort and safety of home ... to relax the mind and body, and make life so much better!

What's my passion? Massage therapy always and forever is my love, but helping people learn how to relax at home, is a very close second!

So, let's learn how to relax, to release stress, and rock this pandemic together!

Solo Build It!
