Find more all-natural beauty treatments at Fitness (photo by Colette DeBarros) There's no reason to ignore your feet just because the weather is growing colder.

In fact, you should pamper your tootsies all the more since they'll be subjected to bitter cold and packed into boots and sensible pumps. 

Your beloved will appreciate smooth feet when you snuggle up to stay warm on long winter nights, too.

This home scrub is great for smoothing out the rough patches on your tired dogs. The cornmeal in this scrub exfoliates while the banana, honey and almond oil soften and moisturize.
