DIY Papaya Facial Mask To Brighten Your Skin

The winter weather can dry out your face, leaving it duller looking than a burnt out Christmas light.

Make your face glow this holiday season with this DIY papaya facial mask, which is rich in antioxidants and will have your face glowing until New Year’s.

To make the mask all you need is three simple ingredients: papaya, honey and lemon juice.

Papaya is rich in antioxidants, and its enzymes help to remove old, dry skin, which will leave you with a glowing and healthy looking complexion.

Honey has natural healing properties which are great for repairing skin. Lemon juice is a great natural cleaner, which will remove any dirt, makeup or oils that are on the surface of your skin.

This mask should be used to whenever you feel your face is looking dull. If you have concerns over your face, please book a FREE consultation with an Altura Aesthetics skin care expert.



·         1/2 a ripe papaya—peeled, seeded, and sliced

·         1/2 teaspoon of honey

·         1/4 teaspoon of lemon juice


Step 1- Mash the papaya in a small bowl with a fork until it’s smooth and creamy. If you have a food processor, it will also work well for this step.

Step 2- Blend in the honey and lemon juice and mix well so that the ingredients are evenly distributed.

Step 3- Apply to your face (please avoid getting any in your eyes as it may cause some irritation) and     leave the mask on for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, wipe your skin clean with a damp, warm cloth, or rinse your face with warm water.
