Get Your Feet in Mint Condition

If you canít make it to San Franciscoís Tru spa to experience its minty Moji-Toe pedicure, try this at-home version. May is a perfect time to pay attention to your feet as they emerge from winter socks to be in sandals or bare.

These soak and scrub recipes are very inviting ways to renew the skin on your toes:

Soak Recipe
1/2 cup sea salt
3 slices lime
5 to 10 fresh mint leaves
5 drops essential lime oil

Combine; add to a basin filled with warm water.

Scrub Recipe
3 limes
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon sweet almond oil
15 fresh mint leaves (chopped)
5 drops lime essential oil

Cut limes into quarters. In a food processor, pulse pieces to a chunky pulp. Mix limes and remaining ingredients in a small bowl.

Soak each foot 5 minutes; apply scrub with your hands, using circular movements around the foot, ankle, and calf. Remove the scrub with a warm, damp towel; apply a minty moisturizer.
