What to do with all of those Thanksgiving leftovers?  Make soup.  Make a sandwich.  Put it on your face?

Elina Fedotova owns a skin care clinic in Kalamazoo.  She says you can put Thanksgiving leftovers on your skin.  We have her advice on how to use mashed potatoes, cranberries, carrots, and more.

First, let’s make one thing clear.  If you are getting your beauty tips through me, you may be in big trouble.  Before beginning any new food on your face program, please consult your beauty doctor.  Or whatever they call them.

Here’s Elina Fedotova’s “Mashed Potato Mask” as shown at mlive.com:

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons warm mashed  potatoes 1 Teaspoon organic sour cream 1/2 Teaspoon organic lemon juice

Instructions:

Mix all three ingredients together and apply to skin for 5-10 minutes  to soften and purify the skin. Rinse the mask off and gently pat dry  skin dry with warm wash cloth.

Benefits: This mask especially is good for dry, sun damaged complexions. Potatoes are a great source of potassium, Vitamin C, calcium and copper — all  essential nutrients that help build skin collagen. The lactic acid in  the sour cream and alpha hydroxy acids in the lemon juice will help to  gently exfoliate, brighten and moisturize your skin.

Here’s some more delicious skin care recipes, including a cranberry lip treatment.
