The foot is packed full of nerve endings and for a body part that literally carries the weight of the world on its small frame, they deserve a little love and affection from time to time. A nourishing foot mask can help to soothe dry, cracked heels, smooth away calloused toes and foot pads and even repair weak nails. The ingredients in this foot mask recipe remove dead skin cells while gently exfoliating. This foot mask can be left on overnight for a truly healing effect.
