Kick off your boots and wiggle your toes – but first grab a grapefruit to exfoliate dry, rough patches. Its alphahydroxy fruit acids and refreshing scent make this citrus fruit a natural for lifting your spirits and reviving your skin.

Here's an easy homemade grapefruit foot scrub.
In a bowl, mix together 1 tbsp (15 mL) each of coarse demerera sugar, grapefruit rind and olive oil; stir in 10 drops of grapefruit essential oil. Let stand for 12 hours; use within three days.

Rub the mixture into your feet, focusing on heels and soles. Rinse well. TIP: To increase the exfoliating effect, just add more sugar.
