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.
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.
