How to Make A Homemade Papaya Facial Mask

Stress is an inevitable part of the busy, fast-paced world we live in. It weighs on us and shows in our faces.

One of the best ways to deal with stress is to stretch back with your favorite magazine, maybe a glass of wine or hot coco, and relax with a fantastic eco-spa treatment: a facial.

There are many fantastic facials on the market you can purchase, but there are plenty of facial masks you can make from the comfort of your home!

One of our favorite facials from the Eco-Spa at Blue Osa is a homemade papaya facial.

How to Make a Homemade Papaya Facial MaskPapaya is an excellent source of vitamins C and A, potassium, magnesium and fiber, making it a powerful antioxidant with numerous health and wellness benefits. But did you know that papaya is also an excellent beauty ingredient for glowing skin?

Papaya has exfoliating, whitening and even healing properties. These properties are what makes papaya a natural beauty enhancer.

As an exfoliate, it helps remove dead and damaged skin, which exposes fresh new glowing skin. It also helps in evening out skin color by reducing brown spots caused by sun exposure.

And lastly, papaya is also used in wound care, including burn wounds, due to its antibacterial and wound healing capabilities.

If you can’t make it all the way to Blue Osa Spa, then you can try creating your own homemade papaya facial mask in the meantime. This natural eco-beauty recipe for glowing skin is something you can make using common ingredients found at home.

Here are a couple of papaya masks for different skin types:
