Papering My Tired Loyal Feet

We are not just teachers, we are…

·         Daughters
·         Sisters
·         Friends
·         Co-Workers
So take a break and do a little something for you.
This Sunday will be my first post of a new series of post for not only the teachers in all of us, but also for the need of taking a little time just us. 
Inspired by Be Positive Mom Take Five Friday. 
Here is my all about me thing that I did for myself this week.
Papering My Tired Loyal Feet
Our feet should not be left out of our beauty regiment. Our feet can benefit from some tender loving care. After all they get us from one point to the next. So let’s take some time and exfoliate those dry cracked overworked, tired feet.

Here is what you will need:
• Dish Pan
• Painters Sand Sponge
• Soft Towel
• Fresh squeezed lemon juice
• Extra Virgin Olive Oil
• Epson Salt

Make a massaging cream with olive oil and Epson salt.  Mix the two ingredients together until you have an oily paste.
Remove all of your dry calluses with the painter’s sponge before you soak your feet in warm water.    
Next rub lemon juice all over your feet with a cotton ball.  Allow the lemon juice to set on your feet for a few minutes to help exfoliate and remove all the dead skin cells.   
Place your feet in a tub of warm water and allow them tootsies to soak and relax the days strain away.  As you soak your feet play some soothing music or read a good read.  Take the time just enjoy after all you deserve it.

After your feet have soaked for several minutes remove one foot at a time placing your foot on the dry towel and massage in the olive oil and Epson salt paste. This will buff away all of the remaining dead skin cell and leave you with smooth soft feet. Once your have massaged your foot well sit it back in the tub of warm water. Repeat with the other foot. Once both feet have been done towel them off and you will be left with some happy tootsies.

Now take the time for you it can be anything, just do something for you, you deserve it!
