Beautiful Bali Fresh Face & Body Mask

For this fresh fruit & veggie mask, we're going to use any kitchen scraps from the day: orange peels, carrot peels, broccoli stems, the core of a pineapple... things you would have normally have thrown away. Throughout the day, store them in a baggie in the fridge. Use them in your mask within one or two days.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • gently simmer the peels in water for 30 minutes - like making a stock. This stock liquid will contain varied vitamins and essential oils, food for your skin.
  • collect 1 cup of the stock water and add 1/2 cup of rice to soak for at least one hour. Do not add heat. You want to soften the rice, to mash it into a paste. The rice will absorb the stock water, and the vitamins and essential oils along with it. You can use extra stock water to rinse your face with.
  • grate the cucumber - collect 1/4 of the juicy flesh
  • Using a pestle & mortar (or food processomash the soften rice into a paste
  • Combine all of the ingredients together to form a thick paste that will stick to your skin. To thicken add more oats or clay. To thin it, add more stock water.
  • apply the mask all over. Let it sit for 15 minutes, then rinse clean with water or left over stock water.
