MAMI’S HOT MILK PEDICURE

If you’re willing to trade pampering for a few extra bucks, consider this do-it-yourself treatment from the comfort of your own home. Step 1: First, make sure you have a foot scraper, nail file, an orange stick and of course nail polish if you’re painting your toenails too.

Step 2: Get a bucket or foot basin and pour half a gallon of hot whole milk, half cup of warm water, brown sugar, a dash of shampoo, uncooked oatmeal and a half-cup of almond oil.

Step 3: File toenails and soak feet in milk for 10 minutes.

Step 4: Remove feet and then gently scrub. Feel free to scrape off dead skin from the heels. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Step 5: Push back cuticles with an orange stick. Use a warm cloth to get rid of residue. Apply polish.
