sliced limes and mint

What could possibly be more refreshing than a cool sugar scrub made with mojito-inspired ingredients: mint and lime. While we’re not actually making an alcoholic scrub, this “mojito” foot scrub will hydrate your feet and legs and give them a much-needed break. Flip-flops and bare feet are great for showing off our pedis, but they do our feet no favors. Being in the sun can also significantly dry out our legs and feet too. For smooth legs and soft feet, whip up this DIY Mojito Foot Scrub and apply from the top of your legs to the tips of your toes.

Here’s how to make the exfoliating and moisturizing Mojito Foot Scrub.
