Fresh Papaya Face Masks

It's Papaya time! Summer and papaya just go together. The sweet scent, the bright color, shouts summer's natural goodness !



Papaya is popular in spas around the world and for good reason. Rich in vitamins C and E and 
enzymes (papain and bromelain protein dissolving enzymes found naturally in papaya) that gently exfoliate and help smooth the skin, papaya is a first class natural facial ingredient.
Make your own mask at home and save money.  I've listed a few different ways you can use papaya in a natural face mask. My favorite is just plain papaya!

 How To:  Mask #1
You can make it simple by peeling, de-seeding and cutting up your fresh papaya, and putting it in your blender or food processor until a smooth, paste type consistency.
Apply to face and neck, leave on for 10 -15 mins. It dries fairly quick. Rinse first with warm water then finish with a refreshing cool splash.  You can use a soft wash cloth to take this off or just rinse.

Mask #2
Mix papaya in blender with warmed honey and oatmeal, leave on 10 -15 mins. Rinse.

Mask #3
Mash or blend ripened papaya.
 Add  honey and yogurt to papaya. Blend well.
Options: 
To lighten and brighten skin you can add some lemon juice. Though papaya itself is a natural lightener.
To calm, hydrate, nourish and refresh add homemade rosewater.

Morgan and her papaya love.
