Good For You Summer Fruits – Feed Your Skin Papaya – OrganicSpaMagazine.com


Papaya Health Benefits

The papaya fruit, with origins in Mexico, has numerous “good for you” qualities. Not only is its buttery texture great tasting and refreshing but it can also help nudge your immune system into working for you. Some of the main benefits of the papaya fruit are said to stimulate the immune system as well as help with digestive problems. Need more vitamins A, C & E? This is one fruit you might want to take notes on.

Papaya Skin Benefits

Papaya has powerful effects on sun burns as well as bug bites and common rashes. I know one benefit no woman would dare turn down – great skin. Flawless skin has long been associated with lavish care and expensive facial masks. We know that is far from the truth. Skin requires simplicity. Making an easy facial mask out of papaya might provide you with some surprising results.

Papaya & Honey Facial Mask

Peel the fruit and remove the seeds

Dice into cubes – 1/4 or 1/2 (depending on personal preference)

Add honey – 1/4 or less ( I suggest less or it might become too sticky)

Use a blender to mix into a spread

Add a touch of cinnamon (helps to exfoliate and fights acne)

You are ready to use your mask; leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse as usual.

Side note: Masks made with food tend to be messy, keep a towel handy.
