New You Beauty Tip: Use walnuts as a natural exfoliant for sexy-smooth skin.


The tree seed most commonly known as a walnut has great health benefits when consumed. It also happens to have a wonderful texture perfect for an extra-gentle skin exfoliant when ground. Blend 1/4 cup shelled walnuts, 1/2 cup olive oil (for extra emollients), and a tablespoon of honey (to seal moisture into your skin) in a food processor set on a slow speed creating a fine-particle scrub. Standing in the shower or over a sink (depending on the body part you are exfoliating), work the mixture thoroughly over your skin for a couple of minutes. Rinse with warm water. The soft texture of the walnut meat along with its natural vitamin E content will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and sexy.
