I posted this one after Thanksgiving last year, and I just had to share it with you guys again!
If you're like me, you have a refridgerator full of Leftovers that you'll never be able to eat. Here are a few beauty tricks you can do with all those leftovers:
Sweet Potato Facial
2 ounces cooked mashed sweet potatoes
1 tbs oats (oatmeal)
1 tbs raw sugar
1/2 tsp olive or almond oil (or any oil you have on hand)
pinch of nutmeg
Mix all of the ingredients together to form a thick like consistency.Adjust the ingredients if needed, add more oats to make it thicker or add more liquid (water or milk) to thin it out. Apply this mixture to face and neck, leave on for about 5-8 minutes. Use warm wash cloths to gently remove the bulk of the paste, then rinse with warm water, and gently pat skin dry.
Mashed Potato Foot Soak
Take desired amount of leftover mashed potatoes, and add work water to thin them out. Then soak your feet in the mixture for about 20 minutes
Green Bean skin smoothing lotion
Take about a handful of leftover green beans. If they have butter, salt, pepper, or onions on them. rinse them with hot water. If there are almonds in them, leave those.
Mash or blend the green beans, then mix with pain yogurt and massage into to your face, elbows, heels, or any other area that needs moisturized. Let this sit on the skin for 10 minutes, then rinse off.
