Walnuts are quite expensive, actually. But the oil in them is very moisturising. If you have very dry skin, this is very good. It is also good if you have stretch marks from pregnancy that wont go away... I usually get the walnuts after no one wants to eat them after Christmas. Go around and ask if your friends and family wants to throw them out too. Don't be embarrassed!

Use it to: Exfoliate hands and feet

Why it works: Rich in oil, walnuts make for extra-gentle sloughing.
How-to: 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 (if you’re scrubbing your feet) or over a sink (if it’s for your hands), work the mixture thoroughly over your skin for a couple of minutes. Rinse with warm water.
