Papaya is a RICH source of powerful antioxidants, which encourages the production of new, fresher-looking skin. Vitamins A, B, C and E, other minerals, magnesium and potassium, all work together, resulting in skin lightening and a natural glow. In addition to evening out the skin’s tone, it also acts as a natural moisturizer. Another benefit of the papaya, is its ability to clear up blackheads, from the natural alpha hydroxy that it contains.
What more can I say? The papaya is here to stay. Read below, for a simple, basic face mask, you can incorporate into your current face regimen. BUT, try not to eat too much of it before you apply it, LOL.
3 Ingredient Papaya Face Mask:
1/2 cup of papaya (cut into small pieces)
1 tsp of honey
1 tsp of yogurt
1. Blend the ingredients together, to form a thick paste.
2. Apply to cleansed skin.
3. Let sit for 10-15 minutes, then wash off with warm water.
***Due to the lightening abilities of papaya, I do not suggest leaving it on for extended periods of time. Instead, apply this mask 1-2 times a week, until you obtain desired results.***
