How-To: Walnut & Brown Sugar Exfoliating Face Scrub

One of my biggest beauty mantras is using food-grade products since we aren’t only what we eat, but also what our skin absorbs. Commercial make up and beauty products these days tend to be filled with chemicals and toxins {I especially pay attention to parabens, which I’ve found in everything from shampoo and body wash to mouthwash}, so to avoid damaging my otherwise healthy habits, I strive to make my own edible beauty products whenever possible. I made this walnut and brown sugar exfoliating scrub for my face recently and have loved the results. The walnuts and brown sugar help remove dead skin, while the honey adds antibacterial properties and the coconut oil moisturizes my skin. My favorite part though is the fact that it tastes like a sweet walnut tart, so I have to stop myself from eating the entire thing.

1/4 Cup Walnuts, ground
1 Teaspoon Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil
1 Teaspoon Raw Honey

How to Make it:
1. Crush the walnuts.
2. Mix in the brown sugar, coconut oil, and honey to the ground walnuts.
3. Place it in a container and refrigerate until you’re ready to use it.
4. Enjoy!
