The other day I found myself craving a juicy papaya, so naturally, I made a trip to a local heath food store and picked out a nice soft organic papaya. But when I got home and cut it in half, it turns out it wasn't ripe at all... the flesh was pale yellow and tough! Sigh.
I have to say, I was pretty saddened but I wasn't discouraged! Instead, I got creative and made myself a beautifying papaya face mask using a few organic ingredients I had on hand. My skin felt so amazing, I thought I'd share the recipe. Looks like my skin was the one craving the fruit ; )
Papaya Face Mask
1/2 small unripe papaya (peeled, seeds removed)
1 Tbsp raw honey
1 tsp coconut oil
Using a mini blender, blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy. Apply a thick layer avoiding the eyes, leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
Enjoy this beautiful and nourishing treatment before bed!
