1. Pumpkin Face Mask. Pumpkin is rich in zinc, which helps purify oily, blemished complexions. Pumpkin enzymes also work to gently exfoliate the skin without any abrasive particles. 2 tablespoons raw pumpkin, finely grated. 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon tomato juice or ½ teaspoon tomato puree. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, stir well or blend using a stick blender. Apply the mask in a thick layer all over your cleansed face, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water. This mask cannot be stored and should be used on the day of preparation.
2. Apple Hair Mask. To revive dry, dull hair, all you need is one big apple or 3-4 medium apples, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 tablespoon corn flour. Peel, core and grate the apples. Combine the grated apple with remaining ingredients and stir well. Spread the mixture over dry, unwashed hair and leave on for 20-30 minutes. You can cover your hair with a show cap or a PVC-free food film and then wrap it with a towel. Rinse the mask off with tepid water and follow with a mild shampoo if desired. This mask cannot be stored and must be used on the day of preparation.
3. Brightening Butternut Squash Enzyme Mask. This great mask works like a scrub to exfoliate without being abrasive to your skin. Butternut squash is high in vitamins A and C and also contains Zinc. It can brighten, heal and protect your skin from free radicals and gently dissolving dead skin cells. 1 egg, 1 cup cooked Butternut Squash – (optional ingredients) Papaya, Honey, Apple cider or Cranberry juice (which ever you have handy.) Adding an egg to the mask helps bind the ingredients together, as well as nourishing and lifting the skin. Whisk together about ½ cup of the squash and the egg. How to customize your mask: For more exfoliation: add 2/3 cup fresh mashed papaya. The additional enzymes will dissolve dead skin on the spot, leaving you fresh and glowing. For dry skin: Add a tablespoon of honey, which acts as a humectant, drawing moisture into the skin. For oily skin: Mix in a tablespoon of apple cider or cranberry juice for a toning astringent effect. Spread the mixture on your face in a fairly thick layer. Avoid the eye area. You will feel some light tingling as the enzymes gently exfoliate the top layer of skin. Leave the mask on for 10-20 minutes and rinse off with warm water and a washcloth. This mask cannot be stored and should be used on the day of preparation.
4. Mint Berry Toner. Here is a toner that will not only tighten your pores with the help of mint, which is a natural cleanser with antibacterial properties, but will also be a luscious treat for your nose with the infusion of raspberries. The berries also add the beneficial antioxidants A and C into the mix. This is good for all skin types. ½ cup chopped mint leaves (or two organic mint tea bags) ¼ cup whole raspberries any variety, rinsed, and 3 cups water. Combine water and mint/tea in a small saucepan. Once the liquid comes to a boil, reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and add the raspberries. Let the mixture simmer for about another four minutes, just until you will smell the strong aroma of raspberries (you don’t want to overcook the berries and have them lose their shape.) Remove from heat and allow to cool. Strain the liquid into a container. Use a cotton pad or ball to tone your face liberally after washing, using upward strokes. Mixture will keep for up to two weeks, refrigerated.

(Important note: Even simple food-based recipes can irritate sensitive skin types so try a small patch test on the intended area first.)
