Yes, it's one of the simplest and effective methods for exfoliating.
Mix a handful with a dash of olive oil (no garlic infused, please) and massage it over your skin. Avoid your face and delicate areas. Rough patches, like your thighs, elbows, arms and knees could use a bit more attention.
Thoroughly remove all residue (and sloughed off skin) with a warm shower.
Soon, your exfoliation will reveal healthy, glowing Spring skin!

However, I do believe those Dove commercials with the brown silk sheets fluttering as the women eat chocolate while moaning wildly is a bit too much.
The following recipe is all about personalizing your dessert. If serving during a dinner party, this looks like you spent the whole day on it. The reality is, that it take about 10 minutes and an hour to set in the freezer.
- 3 Chocolate bars (I prefer dark -- over 60 percent)
- Nuts and Berries (I've used almonds, pistachios, and dried cranberries. Try cashews.)
- Dash of Canola oil.
Once the chocolate is melted, coat a pyrex dish or baking tray with either wax paper or saran wrap. Spray very very very lightly with Canola oil (Pam).
Pour the slightly cooled chocolate onto the tray. Sprinkle your selected nuts and berries or dried fruit onto the chocolate.
Throw into the freezer for about an hour.
How to Plate: Break the chocolate bar into large pieces and stack organically.
