Skin looking a little dull?

I don't know about you, but my face is beyond blah.

It needs a little pick-me-up to get that summery glow.

For that, I turn to my fridge for papaya, yogurt, and honey.

Green papaya that's unripe has natural alpha hydroxy acids and an enzyme that dissolves dead skin cells.

Add a little yogurt for the lactic acid, which is also an alpha hydroxy, and honey for moisture and you've got yourself one heck of a brightening skin mask.
