Yogurt Papaya Mask for Glowing Skin, Even in the Winter

Packed with antioxidants and fiber, papaya is seriously one of the best fruits for your skin. It is very high in vitamin A, which is important for skin repair, as well as vitamin E, to help keep your skin soft and healthy. It doesn't happen to be one of my favorites in terms of taste, but throw it into a smoothie with other fruit and maybe some soy milk or yogurt, and you get an amazing flavor in a skin nourishing drink. 

I whipped up a great yogurt, papaya, and banana smoothie and then of course went on to create a homemade yogurt papaya face mask for my skin. It is perfect for cooling and soothing dry, irritated skin in the winter, while also feeding your face with vitamins and antioxidants. You also get some gentle dead skin cell sloughing with the yogurt's alpha hydroxy acids.

To make a yogurt papaya mask to make your skin absolutely glow, you will need:

  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 3 or four chunks (about one-inch square) of fresh papaya
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey

Throw everything in the blender and puree for twenty seconds. Transfer your creamy papaya mixture to a bowl and head to the bathroom. Gently cleanse your skin, pat dry, and apply to your clean face. Great time for sliced cucumbers over your eyes if you could use an eye touch-up as well. Rinse the mask off after ten minutes. Moisturize and enjoy the glow!
