Healthy feet are beautiful feet. To improve the look of your fatigued feet, you just need a detox bath.
Here, we present you effective detox baths that will not only relax your feet but will also improve your overall health, thanks to their potent cleansing properties.
1. Salt detox
In a ¼ jar of boiling water, add a cup of Epsom salt, 2 cups of baking soda, and a cup of sea salt. Add this mixture to a bathtub filled with hot water and ACV. Add some essential oil and soak in the solution for about 30 minutes. You may feel dizzy afterward. Hence, do it just before going to bed.
2. Clay detox bath
Add ½ cup of Epsom salt, ½ Cup of bentonite clay, and essential oils to a bathtub of hot water. Soak in the mixture for about 20 minutes and use a cloth to scrub the dry areas.
Clay binds to heavy metals whereas Epsom helps in the removal of toxins while replenishing magnesium.
3. Oxygen detox bath
To a bathtub filled with hot water, add 2 cups of hydrogen peroxide and a tablespoon of dry ginger powder. Soak in the mixture for about 30 minutes. It will clear congestions and ease body pains. It’s also excellent for allergies and skin inflammations.
4. Feet pads detox
You can find pads made from bamboo and other tree extracts in any health store. If you put these pads before going to bed, you will wake up to amazing results. Some individuals have reported reduced fatigue, increased energy, and reduced joint pains and headaches.
5. Ionic foot bath
These baths use electricity, which forms positive and negative ions in warm, salty water, through the process of electrolysis.
Warm water opens up the pores of your feet and the salt plays the role of anti-inflammatory astringent. Hence, ions get absorbed and your feet start the detox. You should see the water color changing to muddy or darkish, a sign of toxins leaving the body.
