1 large glass or ceramic bowl
1 bath towel
1 small spray bottle

1. You will need ½ cup of unripe, diced papaya. This contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids and high levels of
papain, an enzyme that helps dissolve dead skin cells.

We all know by now nutrition plays a very important role in beauty; when you’re healthy your beauty radiates from inside out! I’m here to point out one spectacular natural fruit that you can eat and apply on your face as a nourishing face mask. This fruit is indeed touted as the best beauty food ever. I’ve just switched to it and just after one application on my skin, my skin looks so much healthier. It’s wonderful!! The fruit I’m talking about is none other than the AVOCADO.

Our skin loses its luster after being exposed to sunlight, pollution, stress and of course everyday wear and tear and aging. You will notice your skin has lost its radiance and glow that you once had. This is quite inevitable especially as we grow older. However all is not lost as you can restore the health of your skin and nourish it to its beautiful condition again. One of the ways is to eat the right face foods to help create a beautiful skin inside and outside.

Here’s my tip for splendid skin from your face right down to your body – Avocado Honey Facial Mask. This mask will leave your skin supple and smooth with a healthy glow. It’s easy to prepare and it’s almost good enough to eat. Try it out and be amazed at this wonder beauty fruit

Ingredients: Half an avocado, 2 tbs of honey, 2 tbs of plain yoghurt

Directions: Mix all the ingredients into a thick paste. Then pat on face and massage it on for half a minute. Leave on mask for maximum results for at least 20 mins and rinse off with warm water. Moisturize after to seal in moisture.

For the remainder of the avocado mask, you can use it as a body moisturizer. Use the remaining paste from your facial and rub it all over your legs and hands. Massage in the paste and let it set for 20 mins then rinse off with warm water. Moisturize with a body lotion after that for best results.

So what do you do with the other half of the avocado? You should just eat it to further boost your omega 3 intake. To make an avocado appetizer, just squeeze some lemon juice onto your avocado and eat it all up. It helps to retain moisture in your body, further boosting its moisturizing properties.
