<![CDATA[Recipes For Radiance]]> Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:55:43 -0400 http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/160*198/RecipeForRadiance+Alexis+Wolfer.jpg










Water-dense cucumbers, beta-carotene packed mango, healthy fat-filled avocado and omega-3 fatty acid packed crab keeps skin hydrated and supple all summer long.








-1 english cucumber




-1 mango, peeled




-1 avocado




-1 tbsp lime juice




-pinch of salt




-pinch of cayenne




-6 oz jumbo lump crab meat




-lime to garnish














Reveal brighter looking skin with this scrub packed with pumpkin (rich in vitamin A to chemically exfoliate), coconut oil (to hydrate and exfoliate and kill bacteria) and walnuts to gently scrub (they’re more gentle than store-bought exfoliants).








 -2 tablespoons raw walnuts




-2 tbsp pumpkin puree




-1 teaspoon coconut oil




-1 tsp raw honey




-2 tbsp ground flaxseeds










This raw, vegan, gluten-free pudding is packed with anti-aging flavonoids and fats to keep the delicate skin around your eyes youthful – and protected from the sun!



-1 ripe avocado
-4 tbsp raw cacao powder




-2 tbsp agave




-1 tbsp vanilla extract




-2 tbsp almond milk




- 1 tbsp chopped walnuts








This compress gently breaks down the dead skins around your eyes to reveal a brighter complexion without pulling and tugging or applying harsh chemicals around your eyes








-1 tbsp avocado




-1 tbsp grape seed oil




-3 tbsp whole milk








Fight frizz and protect your hair from damage with this spiced nut blend that will shield hair from breakage from root to end. With their omega-3 fatty acids, including alpha-linolenic acid, zinc, protein, and healthy fats, the nuts in this blend work together to help condition your scalp and hair from the inside out, for hair more resistant to damage and frizz-causing breakage.











-1/2 teaspoon Szechwan pepper




1/2 teaspoon ground star anise




1/4 teaspoon ground fennel seeds




1/4 teaspoon ground cloves




1/4 teaspoon cinnamon




1/4 teaspoon salt




1 egg white




1/3 cup raw honey




1/2 cup raw walnuts




1/2 cup raw pecans




1/2 cup raw almonds




1/2 cup raw cashews











A clean, exfoliated scalp is essential for healthy hair growth. Just as clogged pores on your face prevent your skin from breathing properly, clogged pores on your scalp are detrimental to adequate hair growth. With lactic acid and citric acid, in the sour cream and lemon juice, respectively, and with hydrating fats in the avocado, this mask is just what your scalp needs to ensure your hair can grow in healthfully and unencumbered.






-1/2 ripe avocado




-1/2 cup full-fat sour cream







-1 teaspoon lemon juice
