Pamper your skin with pecans

Thanksgiving is right around the corner!! We have covered pumpkin and cranberries but we cannot forget about pecans. So while you are preparing that classic pecan pie, set some aside for a Sugar Honey Scrub.

Pecans contain vitamin E, zinc and magnesium, which are important ingredients for healthy skin. They protect skin cells from oxidative damage, provide nourishment to the skin and help smooth your skin texture.

This homemade Sugar Honey Scrub is sure to get your skin in tip-top shape for the winter party season. It exfoliates, moisturizes, nourishes and helps fight fine lines and wrinkles.

Sugar Honey Pecan Scrub

2 oz. of Brown or Raw Sugar
2 oz. of Crushed Pecans
1 Tbsp. of almond oil
1 Tsp. of honey
2-3 drops of lavender, rosemary, or citrus oil for scent

In a lukewarm shower, scrub the mixture in circular motions, let set for about 5 minutes, rinse.
