Step Five: Face Mask These masks can be used as part of the complete facial beauty treatment or as a stand-alone treatment.

DEEP MOISTURIZING FACE MASK 2 T. plain Greek yogurt 1 egg yolk 1 t. extra-virgin olive oil In a small bowl, combine all ingredients with a whisk and mix thoroughly. Apply to the face (avoiding the eye area) with a cotton ball or cosmetic square. Leave on the face for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water and splash with cool water. Pat dry. Discard any leftover mask mixture and use only when made fresh. Mask may be used once per week and is recommended for dry, sensitive and mature skin. Also recommended for acne breakouts and sunburned skin.

REJUVENATING AND BRIGHTENING FACE MASK ¼ fresh, ripe papaya, peeled 2 t. raw honey ½ t. fresh lemon juice Puree the papaya in a blender or mash with a fork. Add the honey and lemon juice and mix well. Apply the paste to the face (avoid the eye area). Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes, then remove by rinsing with tepid water. Finish with a splash of cool water and a pat dry. Discard any leftover mask mixture and use only when made fresh. Mask may be used as often as twice a week and is recommended for all skin types.

REFINING AND TIGHTENING FACE MASK 1 small ripe banana 1 egg white 1 t. apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice Put all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Apply to the face (avoiding the eye area) with a cotton ball or cosmetic square. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water and splash with cool water. Pat dry. Discard any leftover mask mixture and use only when made fresh. May be used once per week and is recommended for oily skin.

Step Six: Moisturize Use a light, daytime moisturizer according to your skin type. Pure argan oil, watermelon seed oil or jojoba oil make excellent all-natural face moisturizers without any added scent. Try coconut oil or extra-virgin olive oil if your skin is very dry. Use one or two drops to spread over the entire face—concentrating on the driest areas. EDIBLEAUSTIN.COM
