Step 1: Hand Mask: to Moisturize Dry Hands
- Place one small potato into a small sauce pan and fill with water until it covers the potato. Remove the potato from the water and let it cool until you can touch it comfortably.
- Place the potato in a small bowl and begin to mash it.
- Mash until there is still chunks, then add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and continue mashing until smooth.
- Put mixture in the smaller quadrant.
Step 2: Face Mask: to Leave Skin Glowing
- Add hot (but not boiling) water a bowl of plain organic rolled oats and let sit for three minutes.
- Mix in two tablespoons of plain yogurt.
- Mix in two tablespoons of honey.
- Crack an egg into another bowl and separate the yolk from the white.
- Mix in the egg white.
- Put mixture in the largest compartment of the Tupperware.
Step 3: Lip Scrub: to Exfoliate Dry Lips
- Microwave 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.

Step 4: Finishing Touches
As a final touch, slice up a cucumber into rounds, and put the slices in the smallest compartments of the Tupperware, for me it was a removable add on.
