If you have ever visited spas or resorts in exotic locales in Asia, you’ve probably seen a facialist select and mash fresh fruit for a fresh, on-the-spot enzyme mask. Easy to recreate at home, this Balinese face mask will leave your face fresh and glowing!
You will need:
Cut a papaya in half, and discard the seeds. Scoop out the papaya fruit and mash, and then mix in 1 egg. Add pumpkin and whip together. (Put ingredients in a blender or food processor for an extra smooth mask.)
Apply the mask to a clean face, taking care to avoid the immediate eye area. If you have sensitive skin, test the mixture on your hand before spreading it on your face. You’ll feel some tingling as the enzymes in the pumpkin go to work immediately, gently exfoliating your top layer of the skin. Leave on for ten minutes, rinse, and follow with a moisturizer. You'll be glowing in no time!
