Halloween might be over, but all that leftover candy still lingers on—and calls to us at every turn! So to deliver us from sugary temptation, we searched for a way to get the most out of those treats—without them spoiling our diets—and discovered the perfect solution: Use it to make a beautifying face scrub! It's so fast, easy and smells so good, you'll feel like a kid again. Here's what you'll need:
3 Tbs. ground** chocolate** (1 normal-size bar or 3 to 4 minis)
1/2 cup ground** hard candy** (approximately 10 candies)
2 Tbs. olive oil
To do: In a blender or food processor, grind the hard candy until it becomes a fine powder and pour it into a large bowl. Do the same with the chocolate, then mix it and the olive oil with the hard-candy powder. With your fingers, gently massage the scrub into damp skin for 10 to 20 seconds, then rinse with warm water. (You can store the leftover scrub in a small, resealable jar for up to one week—the oil helps keep the mixture from clumping and getting sticky.)
How it works: The hard candy exfoliates (like a sugar scrub), antioxidants in the chocolate protect and repair the skin and the essential fatty acids in the olive oil moisturize—giving you a beautiful glow.
