Edible Face Masks

Brought up in healthy environments on farms, eating and living organically, beauty therapist Tasmin Lutge felt a strong conviction to give her clients a beautifying experience that’s also healing and healthy. “I have always felt strongly against the use of chemicals in any products and I desire to use only ingredients that are as pure as possible: so pure you can eat whatever you apply to your body,” she says. She forages in her garden for plants and fresh foods to create her body and face care treatments.

This is a series of smoothie recipes you can also apply to your face and body.


Blend ingredients together. Pour into a glass to drink leaving a small amount in a bowl to one side. Apply this leftover mixture to your face after cleansing the skin. Leave on for 20-30 minutes and then rinse off with cool water.
