What is a Baby Foot Peel? 

A baby foot peel is a type of skin mask that forms a dry layer on the top of your skin and makes the uppermost layer of your skin peel off.

  • The mask sucks out dirt and calluses from your feet, so that it all gets absorbed in the peel.
  • Unlike any other peel where you just apply it and let it sit, you have to wear socks or special gel filled wraps to let the peel really do its work.
  • This can happen over a period of days and even weeks in some cases.
  • Once the entire top layer of skin has peeled off, you will see soft, smooth, healthy and really clean skin on the surface, which looks as new as a baby’s skin.

Why are people loving this product?

There are many reasons why people are raving about it and loving this type of peel so much.

Easy To Make DIY Baby Foot Peel Recipe


1. DIY baby foot peel using lemon and aspirin 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of Epsom salts
  • 1 lemon
  • 10 to 15 aspirin tablets
  • 4 litres of hot water
  • A plastic wrap
  • A pair of cotton or woollen socks

How it helps

  • Epsom salts can help to act as an exfoliator and remove the dead skin cells from your skin.
  • Aspirin tablets have a soothing and anti-inflammatory effect, and will help to reduce any signs of swelling or redness from your skin. These also help to naturally pull out dirt and make your skin more even toned.
  • Lemon is acidic in nature and acts as a natural skin whitening agent. It also has anti-bacterial properties and will remove any foot odour and prevent them from happening.

How to make 

  • 1
    Pour the water in a large pan or a sort of tub in which you can easily soak your feet.
  • 2
    Add the Epsom salts and soak your feet for at least half an hour.
  • 3
    Put the aspirin tablets in a bowl and squeeze out the juice of the lemon in it.
  • 4
    Keep mixing the two till it dissolves into a smooth and thick paste.
  • 5
    Cut out the plastic wrap in two pieces in such a way that each wrap is large enough to easily cover your feet.
  • 6
    Get your feet out of the water and pat dry with a clean towel.
  • 7
    Take the aspirin and lemon juice paste in your hand and rub it all over your feet, especially around areas that are rough and where you notice cracks or calluses. This will help to loosen out any dead skin.
  • 8
    Also apply more of the paste wherever you feel the skin is excessively dry and rough.
  • 9
    Once you have applied the paste all over your feet, take the wrap and cover both your feet.
  • 10
    Wear the socks and keep them on for at least about six hours. Wash off with warm water and pat dry.
  • 11
    Apply a thick layer of moisturizer on your feet and wear the socks again. Leave on for the night.
  • 12
    Very soon you will notice the skin start to peel off. If you want, you can pull off some of it as long as it does not hurt you. Alternatively, you can also gently rub off the shedding skin with a pumice stone.

  • 2 tsp of Vaseline

How to make 

  • 1
    Take two tsp of Vaseline in a bowl and add the lemon juice.
