beauty recipe: oatmeal foot mask

the fall season has officially started, so i'm sure many of you have already pulled out your favorite booties, boots and ballet flats, all of which cover up those feet and toes you meticulously kept looking fabulous for the past several months… 

but just because your feet will be covered, you shouldn't neglect them! 

i live in socal, so i see my feet and toes a lot more than most in the fall and winter months {i love peep-toes}. i love to pamper my feet between pedicures with at-home treatments, and you can too. this easy-to-do recipe, courtesy of Skyy Hadley, owner of As U Wish Nail Spa, is a fabulous way to bring luxury to your feet without taking a trip to the salon.

take a look...

Meal for the Heels Mask

1. mix 1 cup of regular oatmeal and 1/2 cup of regular milk into a small pot.

2. heat up over the stove, stir until cooked.

3. add 2 tablespoons of sugar to thicken the mixture, and then let it cool off a bit.

4. once the mix has reached desired temperature and thickness, apply to feet.

5. leave on for 5 - 10 minutes.

6. oatmeal soothes dry, itchy or irritated skin, and the milk acts as an exfoliant to help slough away dry and dead skin cells.

7. apply with a moisturizer, like pure shea butter, a a final step to moisturize. 

hope you'll try this recipe soon, beauties ~ happy autumn!
