You can spread this uber scrumptious food item on whole-grain crackers or a slice of bread or even on sliced fruit. It is sweet, nutty, creamy and crunchy, and makes for a delicious topping on ice-creams and pancakes. If you haven’t guessed it by now… we’re talking about peanut butter!
There are more reasons than one to binge on this yumminess. Peanut butter has fibre, potassium, vitamins and minerals, making it a healthy snack for all those who’re heavy on junk. Consuming peanut butter at least once a day not only lowers the risk of heart disease and type-2 diabetes but also promotes your overall health.
Believe it or not, peanut butter can also be included in your beauty routine. How, you ask? Well, it can be the perfect replacement for shaving cream. Yes, you read that right! Here’s how to use creamy peanut butter as a shaving cream.
What you need:
- Creamy peanut butter
- New razor
Just how you’d apply shaving cream, apply a thin layer of peanut butter on your legs while in the shower. Shave as usual with a new razor, but make sure that you rinse out the razor thoroughly after every few swipes. The thick texture of the peanut butter can clog the blades easily. You can use this shaving cream alternative on any part of your body, be it hands, legs or underarms.
The end result is not just a very smooth shave but also moisturised skin. The high oil content in peanut butter is extremely hydrating and will leave your skin nourished and soft. So, you don’t need to slather on more moisturiser after the shave. Win-win!
