Papaya is a tropical fruit, sweet and aromatic, and what is best, is extremely rich in vitamin A and contains a good amount of vitamin B5. Both vitamins are deeply related to the hydration of the skin and hair pigmentation.When you apply a mask of papaya, the fruit helps the cleansing and moisturizing your skin in depth. To prepare a face mask at home, just put in the blender a piece of papaya pulp and add 2 or 3 tablespoons of honey. The bats well until a smooth paste and apply it on face for 20 minutes. Then rinse with warm water and repeat this process once a week.
Unfortunately, not all of us have the funds for a fancy facial or a store-bought facial mask to help alleviate the visual signs of stress. Lucky for you though, we dug up a homemade facial mask recipe from Daisy Tang, founder of Aspara Aromatics, and it’s not just any ol’ home facial mask, but a papaya facial mask (yup, we’ve gone tropical on you). Papaya has enzymes in it similar to alpha hydroxy acid, which helps minimize wrinkles, and in turn will make you look less stressed. To boot, while you apply this facial mask, you can close your eyes and pretend you’re on an island somewhere far, far away from life’s craziness.
In addition to being wallet-friendly, this homemade facial mask is super easy to make. In fact, it only involves three ingredients: oatmeal, honey and — wait for it — papaya. You most likely have the first two in your pantry, right? So all you need to do is pick up the latter from your local market.
