Treat yourself for a beautiful clear skin. The Papaya home-made masque.

This is not a secret that we love and promote fresh, bright and clear skin, here at Sweetsation. So it is not a surprise that we have Papaya incorporated almost in every facial product of our beauty line. But here we would like to share something you can do yourself, to treat your precious skin for the freshest look it deserves. This brightening mask exfoliates and stimulates circulation, resulting in a warm, rosy glow.

Here's how it works: Unripe papaya contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids and high levels of papain, an enzyme that helps dissolve dead skin cells. Yogurt adds lactic acid (another alpha-hydroxy) and gives the mask a creamy texture, and honey helps skin retain moisture. When left on, the mask should tingle slightly; if you have sensitive skin or prefer a gentler exfoliation, use ripe papaya, which has less papain.

Gather up for Green-Papaya Brightening Mask:
1/2 cup unripe papaya, diced
1 teaspoon plain yogurt
1 teaspoon honey

Blend ingredients in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Apply to clean skin using fingers; leave on for 8 to 10 minutes. Rinse off using cool water and pat dry. Finish by applying a gentle moisturizer. That is it. Pretty simple and it works.
