DIY Refreshing Cucumber Lemon Foot Mask

Freshen up your seasonal pedicure offerings with a handmade foot mask.

Freshen up your seasonal pedicure offerings with a handmade foot mask. Nail tech Skyy Hadley, who owns and operates As U Wish Nail Spa in Hoboken, N.J., offers her special recipe that can revive and moisturize toes to get them ready for summer. Hadley says cucumber revives tired toes and feet, the lemon exfoliates, and olive oil deeply moisturizes and softens feet. Follow these steps for a DIY foot mask.

1. Start with two whole cucumbers (one per foot), two tablespoons of lemon juice, and two tablespoons of olive oil. Mix in a blender until pureed.

2. Pour the mixture into a bowl and heat it up to a warm temperature.

3. Apply to feet, leave on for five to 10 minutes, and rinse in warm water. Perform pedicure.
Optional step: Add sugar to the recipe to transform the mask into a scrub.
