Hey guys! Today’s DIY face mask is made of cinnamon and papaya. Gather your materials:
- 3 Tbsp mashed or puréed papaya (after doing this, I would suggest puréed)
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
- Small container to mix in
- Something to mix with
- Warm, wet rag to remove
Mix the ingredients. I just mashed my papaya, but I think it would have been more successful if I’d puréed it.
Apply to a clean, dry face.
Here you can see the mashing didn’t work too well.
Remove after 10 minutes.
The papaya can help with dark spot. It also contains the enzyme papain and alpha hydroxy acids which helps exfoliate away dead skin cells, leaving your skin brighter.
The cinnamon promotes blood flow, creating a plumped look to the skin. It’s also a natural antioxidant, so can help fight damage from free radicals.
As usual, the cinnamon can be a little bit much for sensitive skin, so you may want to do a patch test first.
See you all soon!
