I’m the first to admit that my feet aren’t my best feature. They’re always dry and cracked, not to mention achy. I’m always either looking for new products or concocting my own DIY recipes to make my feet look and feel better. This easy Banana Yogurt Foot Mask is both softening and soothing.
Not only is this Banana Yogurt Foot Mask super simple to make, but its ingredients are also especially beneficial to feet and skin. Yogurt is a gentle exfoliant because its lactic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid, dissolves dead skin cells. Also, yogurt’s acidophilus (good) bacteria, helps kill foot fungus. Bananas are very moisturizing and help control dry and cracked feet.
The sugar in the Banana Yogurt Foot Mask is also a gentle exfoliant and feels soothing on tired feet. Both Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils are good for feet because of their anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. They also smell great!
Banana Yogurt Foot Mask Ingredients:
- 1 ripe banana (mashed)
- 6 oz. plain or vanilla yogurt
- 1 C. sugar
- 3 drops Lavender essential oil
- 3 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
- Basin or bucket for feet

- Stir in sugar. (Mixture will be somewhat lumpy)
- Drop-in oils and stir.
- With feet in the basin, pour mixture over feet and rub onto skin.
- Leave on feet for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Wipe off excess mixture and then rinse feet thoroughly.
