DIY skin brightening mask.

As you may know, I love DIY beauty stuff. Its cheap, easy, and most of the time works GREAT.
You know exactly what youre putting in it, so you know its gonna be good for your skin. And most of the time its all natural, and you control the ingredients so you know youre getting the best.

Heres a quick and easy mask to help exfoliate and stimulate circulation, to make your face glow.
Three simple ingredients, all available at your local grocery store.

Heres what youll need:
1/2 cup diced unripe papaya*
unripe papaya contains something called papain, an enzyme which helps dissolve dead skin cells.
1 tsp plain yogurt
adds lactic acid, an alpha-hydroxy, and gives the mask a creamy texture.
1 tsp honey
helps skin retain moisture.

A quick blend in a food processor until its smooth and youre ready to apply.
Apply to clean face with clean hands, leave on for 8-10 min (mask should tingle a little)
Rinse with cool water, pat dry, and apply a moisturizer. 
In a short ten minutes you will have beautiful glowy skin!

*if you have sensitive skin or prefer a gentler exfoliation, use ripe papaya, which has less papain.
