Walnuts have a number of incredible health benefits including that they are high in omega-3, fibre, protein and vital minerals including potassium, magnesium and copper! But walnuts are also rich in oil and this oil happens to work wonders on your skin. Walnut oil is said to help fight wrinkles as well as can be a remedy for fungal infections, such as athletes foot and candida!
With all this said walnut also make for a perfect exfoliant of hands and feet to scrub off that dead skin, meanwhile locking in moisture.
All you need is:
- 1/4 cup shelled walnuts
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp honey
Put everything into a food processor and blend on a low speed, creating a fine textured scrub. In the shower or over the sink, work the mixture thoroughly over your skin for a couple of minutes, making sure to target areas with more dry skin than other including feet, hands and elbows. Rinse with warm water and enjoy your glowing, hydrated skin.
Enjoy and get exfoliating,
