The cold weather season can really do a number on your feet, leaving them dry, cracked and begging for some attention. There’s nothing better than giving yourself a spa-like foot treatment at home during the weekend after a long week of work. Not everyone has the time or money to head to a spa for some relaxation and pampering, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t pamper your feet just as luxuriously at home.

Here are three great treatments that you can do at home to keep your feet looking and feeling great this winter season.

Paraffin wax treatment

If you have dry and cracked feet, a paraffin wax dip is the perfect solution. To get the most out of the treatment, dip your feet into warm paraffin wax three times in order to create a thick coating of the wax on your feet. The wax will help to soften your skin and open your pores as it hardens and cools. When you take the paraffin wax off once it has hardened completely, you are also peeling off dead skin cells and leaving your feet smooth and refreshed.

Do-it-yourself pedicure

Pedicures don’t just make your toes look pretty, they also help to prevent diseases and nail disorders. There really are no rules when it comes to pampering yourself with a pedicure. Depending on how much free time you have, you can give yourself a root rub, soak your feet in warm water, bath salts and aromatic oils, and then finally take the time to tidy up your nails and put on your favorite polish. These do-it-yourself pedicures can give you some time alone with your thoughts, which can be much more relaxing overall than having your pedicure done by a professional.

Exfoliating your feet

Exfoliation is very important for keeping your feet looking healthy and vibrant. Make a salt scrub easily on your own with some sea salt, vegetable oil, essential oil and your favorite fragrances. Now all you need is a pumice stone and foot file to help rid your feet of the dead cells and keep them looking and feeling young all year round.
