Bring a lovely summer glow back into your complexion this winter with this super fresh, 100% natural face mask recipe!  Your skin will look luminous and toned, while feeling refreshed and hydrated…. ahhh!  This is one of the best DIY natural skincare remedies I’ve tried, so naturally, I had to share!  Enjoy! 

"Papayas are loaded with vitamins A and C, which help repair the skin. Slathering it on your face also helps dissolve dead skin cells, eliminating dull-looking skin. What’s more, this mask contains egg whites to tone the skin and honey, which acts as a powerful hydrator. Amazing what three simple ingredients can do!" -Melissa Rousseau


{1/2 ripe papaya, skinned and seeded}

{1 beaten egg white}

{1 tablespoon of Manuka honey}


"Mix all the ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Apply the mask and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse and pat dry. Spray with Cucumber Green Tea Toner. Apply moisturizer or face oil of choice." -Melissa Rousseau
