Homemade Listerine Foot Soaks

1- Listerine Vinegar Foot Soak

This is the traditional recipe for Listerine vinegar foot soak; I have made a few tweaks in it to increase its effects a little bit. Ingredients

1- Three Tablespoon of Honey
2- One and a half cup of Listerine
3- Half cup of vinegar
4- A jug filled with warm water
5- A container or bucket wide enough to place your feet

The Recipe
Pour all the warm water from jug into the container and add three tablespoon of honey and stir it for a few minutes. Now add half cup of vinegar and one and a half cup of Listerine into the water. Mix the solution thoroughly and place the feet in to for at least ten minutes. The warm water will help relax the blood vessels in the feet and the solution will soften the dead thick skin on your feet. With the addition of honey you can feel the added shine and smoothness on your feet later on. Never do the feet soak with boiling hot water because it may end up damaging the skin. Make sure the water is warm enough to give you a soothing feel and not to cause any irritation or burning. After giving your feet this heavenly treatment you can further scrub or file them gently to remove the dead skin. You can also massage your feet with Vaseline later on to maintain the ultimate softness. Listerine foot bath is also effective for Toenail fungus. You can scrub the affected toenail after giving it foot bath and then dry it off to apply Vaseline.

2- Listerine Epsom Salt Foot Soak
Listerine and Epsom salt can ease down the tensed blood arteries in the feet. The amount of stress which our feet sustain in daily routine causes foot ache and numerous other problems. The blood flow in arteries lowers down and combined with the lack of moisture ends up cracking the skin on the feet; this cracked skin is also referred as dead skin below the feet.
Ingredients
1- Half cup of Epsom Salt
2- One and a half cup of Listerine
3- Few drops of lemon
4- A jug filled with warm water
5- A container wide enough to place feet

The Recipe 
Fill the container with warm water and add a few drops of lemon juice and half cup of Epsom Salt. Add one and a half cup of Listerine into the water whilst stirring it slowly. Put your feet in the container for at least fifteen minutes and enjoy the warmth of solution. You can add a few cups of warm water if you are planning to soak them longer. The Epsom salt would greatly help in relieving the tension from feet muscles and reducing the inflammation. This foot soak greatly enhances the blood flow in your feet and eliminated the dryness from skin, moreover this footbath is also quite effective for toenail fungus. You can try the Epsom Salt Foot bath twice in a week; I usually prefer this treatment on weekend.

3- Listerine & Shaving Cream Foot Soak
Listerine and the shaving cream can work in conjunction to heal the dead skin from feet. Listerine is antiseptic so it kills the germs while the shaving cream contains chemicals that reduce the stiffness from skin and also enhances the production of Keratin. Keratin is one of the essential structural proteins that comprise the outer layer of skin and protects it from stress and cellular damage. With Listerine and shaving cream combo you can eliminate the dead cells from the feet and enhance the overall texture and softness of skin.

 

Ingredients
1- Shaving foam or cream
2- One cup of Listerine
3- A container wide enough to place feet
4- Warm water
5- A filer or foot scrubber

The Recipe
Wash your feet with soap or a good face wash. Apply the shaving cream on your feet and massage it gently for five to ten minutes. Fill the container with warm water and add one cup of Listerine in it. Place your feet in the warm solution for fifteen to twenty minutes. Use the filer or scrubber to remove the shaving cream along with the dead skin from feet and wash it off with normal water. Slowly massage the skin with a good skin lotion or Vaseline. The Shaving cream-Listerine feet soak works phenomenally better than the common foot creams in market. It can heal cracked and dry heels, prevents toenail fungus and dead skin cells formation with added Keratin treatment.

4- Listerine & Chamomile Tea Foot Soak
Listerine and Chamomile foot soak owes a great importance in the remedial treatment of calluses and corns. Also the people with the embarrassing sweaty foot condition can cure this problem with this homemade remedy.

Place your feet in the warm solution and enjoy the warmth for half an hour. You can add extra cups of boiled water to keep the solution warm during the whole time. File the dead skin from feet and wash it off with normal water. After drying your feet apply some Vaseline on your heels and massage it gently. The Chamomile-Listerine Foot Bath eliminates the calluses and corns and decreases the over-sweating of feet.
