Beauty: The Peppermint Pedicure

Ooooh it is that time of year! Holiday music, Christmas shopping, Christmas songs and holiday cheer! Well, my sister does a segment on ABC Columbia called Wrinkle Free Wednesdays, and last week when I was in town to visit for Thanksgiving, I saw this segment on making your own peppermint scrub at home. What a great way to get into the holiday spirit--and what a wonderful activity for your girlfriends/sisters/mom on a Saturday in December! I can feel my pores opening up just thinking about it!

Here is the segment:

and the recipe:

Peppermint pedicure scrub:

1 cup granulated sugar

6 candy canes finely chopped into a powdered form

mix the 2 together and add...

½ cup olive oil

6 drops essential peppermint oil

gently massage into legs and feet

wrap with a hot towel

Leave on for 5 minutes

wipe it off, add your favorite nail color and voila!

If you live in the Columbia, South Carolina area, you can catch my sis Alicia Barnes weekdays at 6 & 11 on ABC.

Keep those toes happy!
