Are your feet happy?

I hope you´ve enjoyed the weekend!! Here it has been really hot, and with summer arrives one of my most feared tortures: foot blisters and rubbing! I love to wear sandals and wedges, every year I succumb to the new tempting shoes that stores offer, and after a couple of uses I fall into my harsh reality: a pair of walks and my feet are full of blisters, chafing and real grooves in my feet...
No matter the quality of the shoe, whether it is leather or synthetic, if it is closed or open, with strips or laces, breathable or not ... everything hurts me!
So I returned to my foot soaks, and my foot care kit, that it´s really comforting. And when I was in my little homemade spa, I realized that I had never shared this recipe on this blog!! I thought to publish a couple of months ago and I forgot completely, so I think today is a good time, we don´t  need to have our feet damaged to enjoy this care, which is highly moisturizing and nourishing. I shared before a green tea foot spa recipe, you can see it here. Anyway, I´m sure you´ll love this Himalayan sal & sugar scrub and this chamomile & coconut oil moisturizing cream. 
exfoliante casero para pies y crema nutritiva


Espero que hayáis disfrutado mucho del fin de semana!! Por aquí hemos pasado mucho calor, y con ello una de mis torturas veraniegas: los pies! Me encanta llevar sandalias y cuñas, cada año sucumbo a los nuevos modelos de calzado tan tentadores que nos ofrecen las tiendas, y luego de un par de usos caigo en mi cruda realidad: un par de caminatas y mis pies se llenan de ampollas, rozaduras y verdaderos surcos en carne viva...

Da igual la calidad del zapato, si es piel o sintético, si es cerrado o abierto, si tiene tiras o lazos, si es transpirable o no...  todo me hace daño!
Así que he vuelto a mis baños de pies,  y a mi kit de cuidados para pies, que realmente los reconforta. Y cuando estaba en mi particular spa, me di cuenta que nunca había compartido esta receta en el blog!! Pensaba publicarlo hace un par de meses y se me olvidó completamente, creo que hoy es una buena ocasión, no hace falta tener los pies maltratados para disfrutar de estos cuidados, que son altamente hidratantes y nutritivos. Ya he compartido antes un spa de té verde para pies, podéis verlo aquí
Este kit se compone de un exfoliante a base de aceite de coco, azúcar moreno y sal del himalaya (podéis utilizar sal marina), una piedra exfoliante hecha de terracotta, y una crema hidratante a base de aceite de coco  y aceite esencial de manzanilla.
Como veis, es un kit de recuperación de la piel, eliminación de impurezas y pieles muertas, e hidratación intensa. Por ello, es ideal para todo tipo de pies!

Si queréis intensificar los resultados, os recomiendo realizar antes un baño de pies, mezclando un puñado de sal gorda y bicarbonato en un cubo con agua tibia, podéis agregar unas gotas de aceite esencial de lavanda y árbol del te o un manojo de manzanilla o flores secas de lavanda. Si lo preferís podéis agregar unas bombas de baño como éstas o este baño de pies que os propuse hace un tiempo. Y reposar allí los pies durante unos 20 minutos. Así curaremos las heridas y ampollas y evitaremos cualquier infección, también ablandaremos las pieles muertas y durezas,  y será más fácil eliminarlas, además de la sensación de comfort que sentirán vuestros días al cabo de un día de mucha actividad!
Exfoliante para pies:
3 cdas de aceite de coco 
2 cdas miel
1/4 taza de aceite de oliva (yo utilicé oleato de caléndula)
1/2  taza azúcar moreno
1/2 taza sal del himalaya (o sal marina fina)
unas gotas de aceite esencial del árbol del te
Mezclamos todos los ingredientes, podemos agregar más aceite de oliva si la mezcla no se integra lo suficiente (depende un poco de la temperatura donde viváis). Si donde vivís el aceite de coco es sólido, lo podéis batir e integrar al resto de ingredientes, si en cambio hace calor y el aceite es líquido, mejor dejarlo tal cual e integrarlo de forma líquida a los ingredientes.
Este  exfoliante es ideal para pies, el grano gordo del azúcar moreno junto con el fino de la sal ejerce una exfoliación intensa pero delicada a la vez, suavizando durezas y eliminando pieles muertas.
Lo aplicaremos realizando un suave masaje, insistiendo en las zonas donde hayan durezas y sequedad. El aceite de coco y el aceite de oliva (o cualquier macerado que tengáis) garantiza una alta hidratación, y el aceite esencial del árbol del te es gran antibacteriano y fungicida.
A continuación frotaremos con la piedra de terracotta, la podéis encontrar en herbolarios y tiendas de productos naturales. Podéis utilizar una piedra pomez también. Lo que me gusta de esta piedra de terracotta es su suavidad y que no hace ningún daño a la piel, pero elimina las pieles muertas de manera muy efectiva y ablanda todas las durezas.
Y por último hidratamos con esta crema casera y maravillosa de coco y manzanilla, que  dejaremos actuar toda la noche:
Crema de coco:
aceite de coco
aceite de oliva (u oleato de manzanilla)
maicena
aceite esencial de manzanilla
vitamina E opcional
No he puesto cantidades porque se hace un poco a ojo y dependerá mucho del clima en que viváis. Si estáis en un clima cálido, por encima de los 25º, vuestro aceite de coco será líquido, en ese caso mezclaremos todos los ingredientes hasta obtener una pasta, refrigeraremos hasta solidificar y batiremos con la batidora eléctrica hasta obtener una textura cremosa. Yo utilicé 1/2 taza de aceite de coco y oliva (mezclados), 1 cda maicena y 10 gotas de aceite esencial. Se puede conservar en el frigorífico para conservar su textura original, pero no es obligatorio.
Si en cambio vivís en un clima más frío, y vuestro aceite de coco se presenta en estado sólido, bastará agregar el aceite de oliva y el aceite esencial y batir con batidora, hasta obtener una textura similar a la nata montada (crema de leche), no hará falta incorporar la maicena. Conservar fuera de la nevera. 
Aplicar en todo el pie, en el momento de ir a la cama, realizando un suave masaje y dejar hidratar durante toda la noche.
En casos agudos de sequedad y falta de hidratación, un método muy efectivo es embadurnar  el pie con una cantidad generosa de crema y poner el pie en una bolsa plástica, dejar unas cuantas horas (o toda la noche) y a la mañana siguiente la piel habrá recuperado su belleza y suavidad!
homemade foot spa


This kit consists of a Himalayan salt, coconut oil & brown sugar scrub, a terracotta pumice stone, and a moisturizing cream made from coconut oil and chamomile essential oil.
As you see, it is a recovery skin kit, removes calluses and dead skin, and gives intense moisturizing. Therefore, it is ideal for all types of feet!
If you want to intensify the results, I recommend taking a foot soak before, mixing a handful of coarse salt and baking soda in a bucket with warm water, you can add a few drops of lavender or tea tree essential oil or a bunch of dried chamomile or lavender. If you prefer you can add some bath bombs like these or this green tea foot soak that I posted some time ago. Soak your feet for about 20 minutes. This will heal  wounds and blisters and avoid any infection, it will also soften hard skin and calluses, and will make easier to remove them, apart from the feeling of comfort that your feet will experience after a busy day!
Foot scrub:
3 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp honey
1/4 cup olive oil (I used calendula infused oil)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Himalayan salt (or fine sea salt)
a few drops of trea tree essential oil 
Mix all ingredients, you can add more olive oil if the mixture is not well integrated (it depends on where the climate). If where you live  coconut oil is in its solid state,  you can whip and then icorporate the rest of ingredients. If coconut oil is liquid, just mix all ingredients together, without whipping.
This scrub is ideal for feet, the coarse granulate brown sugar mixed with fine sea salt make a strong but gentle exfoliation while softening hardness and removing dead skin.
We will apply a gentle massage, insisting in hard and dry areas. Coconut oil and olive oil (or any oil you have infused) ensure high hydration and tea tree essential oil is a great antibacterial and fungicidal .
Then rub with terracotta pumice stone, you can find it in health food and natural food stores. You can also use a regular pumice stone. What I like about this terracota stone  is how soft it is, and also that it doesn´t  harm  the skin, removes dead skin  and softens hard skin as well. 
And finally let´s moisturize with this wonderful homemade chamomile & coconut oil cream:
Camomile & coconut oil moisturizing cream:
coconut oil
olive oil (or chamomile infused oil)
cornstarch
chamomile essential oil
Vitamin E optional
I haven´t set quantities because it gets a little eye and depend greatly on the climate in which you live. If you are in a warm climate, above 25 degrees, your coconut oil will be liquid, then mix all ingredients to a paste, cool to solidify and then beat with electric mixer until creamy. I used 1/2 cup coconut and olive oil (mixed), 1 tablespoon cornstarch, and 10 drops of essential oil. It can be store in the fridge to mantain its original texture, but it´s not required.
If instead you live in a colder climate, and your coconut oil comes in solid state, simply add the olive oil and essential oil and beat with mixer until mixture looks like whipped cream, you will not need to incorporate cornstarch. Keep out of the fridge.
Apply along the entire foot, at the time of going to bed, with a gentle massage and leave hydrate overnight.
In acute cases of dryness and lack of hydration, a very effective method is to smear your foot with a generous amount of cream and put your foot in a plastic bag, leaving for a few hours (or overnight) and the next morning your skin will recover its beauty and softness!
