Fill a pan with water, add pulp, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and cloves … simmer all day long on a back burner for potpourri! The peels from citrus fruits are good as well! Makes the whole house smells so good!

I use the pulp from the lid as a facial mask (its usually finer than the pulp in the container). I put it on a bowl, sit down slightly reclined with a towel over upper body, press pulp onto face, leave for 10-15 mins, remove with hands into bowl, rinse face with water.

I am a qualified beauty therapist and I have used fresh fruit masks in the past. Acidic fruits such as kiwi and pineapple are great for oily skin types, avocado (which you wouldn’t use in a juicer though) works wonders on dry skin, combine your fruit pulp with a little oats as these produce a natural “milk” which conditions the skin, apply direct to skin with oats for a exfoliating mask. I recommend using a muslin cloth, cut holes for eyes and mouth, place over the face and apply the mask over, this makes removal much easier and tidier yet all the fruit goodness goes into your skin.
Do not use carrots, beet root, etc as these WILL stain your face and leaving you looking like you’ve got sunburn or a rather orange toned skin!! (Carrot extract is in “tanning tablets”!)
