Too Many Christmas Leftovers? Smear Them on Your Face

Holidays that involve feasts, particularly Thanksgiving and Christmas, also tend to involve massive amounts of leftovers. While some people, myself included, relish the leftovers and the delicious sandwiches they become a part of, others can't stand leftovers or simply can't eat all of them.

For those people, skin and beauty expert Stacy Cox suggests using your side dishes and desserts for less traditional purposes. She says that pumpkin pies can be used for exfoliating skin treatments while cranberries can make an excellent hair mask. Of course, even if the treatments aren't quite as effective as you hope for, you're at least certain to smell delightful on New Year's Eve.
