A home spa pedicure recipe will get your toes in tip top shape and ready for sandal season and will revitalize moisturize tired feet.
This grapefruit-vodka foot treatment from the Tribeca-based natural nail spa sounds good enough to drink, but we suggest you whip up a second batch for your drinking pleasure.
You will need:
1 gallon grapefruit juice (no pulp)
1 sliced grapefruit (pink or yellow)
2 limes (1 sliced in wheels, the other halved)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 shot glass of vodka
Pour 1/4 cup sugar into small bowl and place lime half on top.
Heat grapefruit juice on stove or in microwave until warm (not hot).
Pour heated juice into a large basin, add shot of vodka, and garnish with sliced grapefruit and lime.
Soak feet for a few minutes. Then, dip a lime half into the sugar and squeeze out a bit of the juice.
Use lime to gently apply sugar to feet in a circular motion to exfoliate rough skin. Repeat with remaining sugar and the other lime half.
Rinse well. Follow with foot lotion and polish.
