If your feet and heels are dry and cracked like mine used to be, you’re going to love these tutorials showing how to exfoliate feet by making a DIY foot scrub and enjoying a soothing foot soak in the comfort of your own home!

I’m thinking of getting a foot tattoo. But I’ve done a lot of research and I’ve found 5 good reasons to reconsider getting a tattoo on your foot that I thought I’d share to help others who are trying to decide whether to get foot tattoos or not.
