Puglia, the rural “heel” of Italy’s boot is brimming with natural and simple produce like figs, lemons, and olive oil. When brought together, they can create an unforgettable renewing experience. Borgo Egnazia has one of the best spas in the world. We spent our last day in Puglia being pampered at their spa. Their artisanal pedicure scrub was a favorite treatment that will relax and nourish you. With just a few simple ingredients, you can recreate this luxurious experience at home.
Use olive oil to moisturize and nourish your skin. Add coarse salt and gently rub to exfoliate the skin. Take a lemon, cut in half, and rub on your skin and nails to remove the salt. Cover your feet and/or hands in a warm towel and allow the olive oil to sink in. Wipe any remaining ingredients off and moisturize with a nourishing cream like fig or whipped almond butter.
