Hello, sunshine. We wanted to bring you some easy DIY face masks. The protagonist for all recipes this time is the great old Papaya. You can think of it as the hot deal when it comes to DIY recipes!
That is because papayas are simply loaded with Vitamins A and C. These vitamins help to maintain a check on the free radicals found in the skin thus avoiding your skin to break and form wrinkles. So throwing this on your face will definitely help slow down your skin’s aging. Another mineral found in Papaya is Potassium. If you apply it on the face it will punch you with all the benefits it provides to the skin that you get otherwise from eating.So Papaya is highly ideal for sensitive skin types, which may face conditions such as irritation, dryness and flakiness.
Our point is why are you already not using these face masks!
- Papaya, Cucumber, And Banana
Cucumber is the buddy every person needs. It is so hydrating and soothing for the skin when it comes to any kind inflammations. Cucumber is also a natural skin toner and evens out complexion. Bananas are saviours when it comes to acne breakouts. In fact, save the peels also to apply on your skin separately. It does wonders for oily skin.
Let us tell you the Ingredients because we should:
Ripe papaya pieces – ¼ Cup
Bananas – ¼ Cup
Cucumber – Cut ½ a piece
Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
Do this, because why not!
Cut the banana and mash it completely. Blend it well with cut pieces of papaya and cucumber. Get the mixed pulp of the three fruits.
Add 1 teaspoon of baking powder to the paste and mix well.
Apply this paste on your face and neck. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
Rinse with lukewarm water first and pat dry gently afterwards.
- Papaya mixed with the Goodness of Oatmeal
Oatmeal soothes and nourishes gently because of its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Also the oats naturally replenish oil levels almost duping your skin to produce lesser levels of oil. Oats are a little more textured so they act as super exfoliants leaving your skin silky and smooth to touch.
Ingredients are important for recipes:
Oatmeal (cooked) – 6 tablespoons
Papaya pulp – 2 tablespoons
Lemon Juice – 1 teaspoon
Tea tree essential oil – 1 or 2 drops
The method to this recipe
Mix everything to get a good thick consistency.
Leave it on for 15 minutes, then wash your face with warm water.
Gently pat dry your face with a soft towel.
- Papaya And Soy Yogurt Pack
Now yoghurts are not just delicious for the mouth but are great for any face masks. When applied to the skin its zinc properties helps in curing acne. Soy yoghurt specifically helps in fading pigmentation as well. Lemon juice will help in effectively brightening the skin. Adding all this to a Papaya is like a face -treat-mask.
Turns out you will need the following:
Ripe papaya – 1/2 cup, diced
Soy Yogurt – 2 tablespoons
Maple Syrup/ Agave Nectar – 1 tablespoon
Lemon juice – ½ tablespoon
A little more work and you’re done!
Blend ingredients in a food processor or blender until consistent like a smoothie.
Rub and massage it all over your face.
Wait about 15-20 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
- The Golden Face Mask
Turmeric is the most active ingredient in scar healing products. This ingredient has antiseptic qualities. It will keep the skin from getting infected with its antimicrobial properties. It is a popular remedy for eczema (dry skin condition) and dark circles also. Try this DIY to make your skin literally glow. This one is also the easiest.
Get the following stuff because it is easy:
Papaya – ½ Cup diced
Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
And then it gets easier
Cut pieces of the papaya fruit and mash them completely. Add the turmeric and mix well, either using a spoon or food processor. It should get really smooth.
Apply a thin layer of the mixture to your face, neck, for fifteen minutes.
