Beauty Spotting: DIY Strawberry Peppermint Foot Scrub

Written by Casey

A strawberry and peppermint foot scrub good enough to eat!

So it’s the last day of New York Fashion Week, and the physical suffering of my feet are over. Not only am I exhausted, but my feet are killing me. The heels, even the wedges, and booties have my feet blistered, rough and sore. As the weekend is approaching, and the parties are winding down it’s time to take of your feet and give them the much needed attention and RESPECT they deserve. After all they did take you all over Manhattan this week from fashion shows, to parties, to work, and then back home again.

Erika Katz, beauty expert and author of Bonding over Beauty, has created a DIY Strawberry Peppermint Foot Scrub that is the perfect remedy! Just follow these simple simple steps and you’ll have a soothing foot scrub in no time – now sit back and relax!

Strawberry Peppermint Foot Scrub


  • 2 cups pureed strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated white sugar
  • 4 drops peppermint essential oil

To Make:

Mix all the ingredients well and put into a pretty jar. It’s great to use strawberries in this recipe because they are rich in salicylic acid which helps dead skin shed more easily. The sugar granules also help to exfoliate skin but are super gentle on delicate skin. You can also keep this recipe in the fridge for up to one week.

To use your scrub, simply rub your feet gently in a circular motion, rinse with warm water, and enjoy the results!
