Rose’s Homemade Brightening Face Mask Recipe

This wonderful homemade face mask recipe is packed with antioxidants and the papaya’s enzymes help to buff away old, dry skin cells for a glowing and radiant complexion.

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 a ripe papaya—peeled, seeded, and sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon or lime juice

Puree the papaya in a blender until just mashed, and then blend in the other ingredients by hand.

Spread the mixture over your face, making sure to avoid your eyes, and leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Wipe or rinse your face clean, and voilà beautiful glowing skin!
