Simple Strawberry Foot Scrub

With sandal season in full swing, your feet may need a little sprucing up. We have used strawberries to make facials in the past. They are loaded with alpha hydroxy acids - great for exfoliating dry, rough skin. So we played around with a few recipes and came up with this soothing (and delicious!) foot treatment.

What You Need:

  • 3-4 small strawberries

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar

  • large bowl of water

  • an old towel

First, puree the strawberries and olive oil. Wait to add the brown sugar until you are about to put the scrub on your feet or it will dissolve to soon.

Soak your feet in warm water for at least 10 minutes to start softening the skin.

Spread your towel out in the kitchen or bathroom. It can get a little sticky! Have another bowl of water ready for rinsing your feet. Stir in the brown sugar and massage the mixture the mixture all over your feet. Let the scrub sit for 15 - 20 minutes. Then rinse well. Your feet will look and feel wonderful. Our only complaint with this scrub was that we couldn't keep Rocky the dog out of it!

Pin It!


  1. Cute pup! Maybe Rocky's feet need a scrub, too?

  2. So funny about the dog!! I'm with him. Even the dog knows that those berries are to go in your mouth,(yum, yum!!) not on your feet. LOL Cute photo!!
