Is it me or do fridays come too quickly these days? *scratching head*
Anyways, eeeeeeeees friday and also time for another of our natural home-made recipes. This amazing mask is guaranteed to get rid of uneven skin-tone, sun spots, black /dark spots and hyper-pigmentation on your face. And by the term hyper-pigmentation, i mean that some areas on the face are lighter than the rest. A lot of people ask me how they can get rid of spots left behind by pimples and all what-nots. This is the answer! And the main ingredient is pawpaw. One good thing about these homemade recipes is that the ingredients are easily obtainable, and what's more??? They are cheap! This particular mask only requires pawpaw and honey. By the way, another name for pawpaw is papaya.
|Errrrrrrrm...........disregard the cocoa in the bowl. E no follow.|
All these recipes i share, you will find them in tubes, cups and jars on cosmetic stores shelves. Yes you will, but the thing is that those ones have added preservatives and chemicals to make them last up till their indicated expiry dates. There are pawpaw and honey masks in stores.....so would you prefer to buy the already made-chemically preserved ones, or would you like to make yours without the chemicals? Your choice to make.
½ Cup Mashed Ripe Papaya / Pawpaw
2 Tablespoons Warm Pure Honey
Blend the pawpaw and set aside
Warm the honey a little, because warming the honey slightly makes it easier to stir into a beautiful paste for your skin.
Mix the ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
Apply on your cleansed face and neck and leave on for 20 minutes.
Rinse off with warm water and a gentle cleanser then pat dry with a soft hand towel.
Apply an oil-free moisturizer to your face and neck.
WHY PAWPAW / PAPAYA?
Because papaya has many wonderful benefits for your skin. This fruit is packed with many antioxidants that will nourish your skin, and it contains a special enzyme called papain that kills dead skin cells (cellular build-up) to help new, fresh, beautiful skin to surface.
Honey contains numerous anti-microbial properties and is a natural antioxidant. Honey fights microbial infections that cause acne without irritating your skin. This sweet treat pulls out impurities from your pores that would normally stay clogged, festering bacteria that causes pimples. Honey will also help restore your skin’s texture and reduce damage done to your skin by the sun and daily environments you come in contact with.
