Not only feet can become dry during pregnancy,but they also swelled and became very tender. A good old foot massage really did the trick and teamed with this natural beauty of an ingredient, became smooth and soft.

What You’ll Need:

3 tbsp shea butter

1 tbsp coconut oil

Method:

Mix all the ingredients together. Both ingredients sink deep into the layers of your skin and repair dry and damaged cells while strengthening new ones! Apply generously to your feet making sure to reach in between your toes and on the rough areas like the heel.
Wrap your feet in cling film, put your feet up and have a cuppa! If you can do this before bedtime and leave the mixture on overnight then you’ll wake up to fabulously smooth feet.
When you’re ready, remove the cling film and rub in any excess mixture. There’s no need to rinse it off, your skin can do with all the moisturizing that they can get, so if you have too much left over to rub in, simply apply in to your legs.MYNEWSHUB
