20 Uses for Leftover Fruit and Vegetable Rinds and Peels

9 Mar

Avoiding processed foods is good for your body and the environment; it means less salt/fat for you and less trash at the dump. But I find that even when I buy vegetables and fruits, I still have trash. Yes, it’s biodegradable waste but you learn in school about the Native Americans who use every part of the buffalo, etc… and I am inspired to do the same with my food sources! That is why I am so excited to share this article with you. I posted the beauty uses for fruit and vegetable leftovers from the article:

Make a Banana Sugar Scrub. Sprinkle sugar on the flesh side of banana peels and use as a soft, exfoliating loofa. Rub gently all over your body and then rinse in the shower.

Refresh Your Face. For a skin tonic, rub orange or grapefruit peels on your face (avoiding your eyes) and then gently rinse with warm water.

Moisturize. Rub the fleshy part of an avocado peel on your face for a rich moisturizer.

Relieve Your Peepers. Potato peels can reduce puffiness around eyes; press the moist side of the fresh peels to the skin for 15 minutes.
