Fresh papaya brings out the sexy in your skin and the sassy in your spirit.
Besides containing loads of Vitamin C and potassium, the fleshy fruit of a papaya also contains a miracle enzyme called papain, which when applied to skin, helps banish dulling dead skin cells. Give your whole body a lift with this sexy skin-reviving body mask.
Here’s what you need:
- One ripe papaya
Here’s what you do:
Peel the papaya, scoop out and discard the seeds and mash the pulp with a fork. In the shower, first exfoliate using a natural bristle body brush or sponge paying extra attention to elbows, knees and heels. Starting at the neck and working your way down, apply the papaya body mask and leave it on for at least five minutes. Rinse and follow with a light body lotion.
As always, if you have sensitive skin or are prone to food allergies, test the fresh papaya on the inside of your arm first. We have used this mask on our face but use with caution and always follow up with sunscreen because the papaya enzymes can cause skin to be more sensitive the sun.
