Flickr photo by LingshaSkin 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.
Get the recipe ...
- 1/2 cup unripe papaya, diced
- 1 teaspoon plain yogurt
- 1 teaspoon honey
Blend ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
Apply to clean skin using fingers; leave on for 8 to 10 minutes.
Rinse off using cool water and pat dry.
Finish by applying a gentle moisturizer.
Would you use fruits and veggies on your skin?
