Papaya, Yogurt and Honey Facial Treatment
Keep the peel on if you’d like a stronger mask or remove it if you have sensitive skin. Place the papaya, a tablespoon of unflavored yogurt and 2 teaspoons of raw honey (Manuka honey is best) into a good blender and blend until it’s smooth. (if you don’t have a good blender, then i suggest you get one. Their really useful not only for facials but for smoothies, soups, pestos, and hundreds of other great recipes! My blender is the 1000 watt blender from cuisinart and i absolutely love it) After everything is nice and smooth, pour the mixture out into a bowl and head to your room with a towel. If you have long hair, it might be worth tying back. Put the towel over your pillow and gently apply the mix onto your face avoiding your eyes. Now just relax for 10-15 minutes. Put on some music, read a book, watch tv, play angry birds. Enjoy yourself! Keep in mind that your skin might feel a little tingly but this shouldn’t be painful. if it is rinse off IMMEDIATELY and moisturize your face, preferable with aloe-vera gel. When 15 minutes have gone by, head to the bathroom and rinse that ice goo down the drain. Your skin should feel refreshed and happy, thanks to those oh so wonderful papayas. Follow with a toner if you use one and a natural, chemical free moisturizer. Alternatively, try avocado oil as a face moisturizer for much deeper penetration. if you decide that you like it, use it once or maybe twice a week, and soon you should see some real improvement.
