Avocado papaya face mask

Papaya and avocado are some of the most delicious tropical fruits you can enjoy, but instead of eating them, I ask you to put them on your face, for a nourishing, skin-softening face mask.



Papaya is rich in fruit acids (AHAs), which naturally exfoliate the skin. Avocado is highly moisturising and rich in natural oils which are great for dry skin.



I wouldn't ask you to use these fruits when ripe because they are delicious and should be eaten, but if your fridge is a little overstuffed with forgotten-about foods then you might find a rather old papya and avocado. If so, then it would be a real shame if you didn't make this incredible face mask.

Ingredients
3 tablespoons bentonite clay
1 overripe papaya
1 overripe avocado
50ml whole milk

Method

Firstly scoop the avocado flesh from the skin.

Add the avocado and papaya (skin on) to a jar.



Pour in the milk and mix together to form a mashed, wet and sloppy, mixture.



Add the clay.



Combine and voila! You have a face mask.



Replace the lid and store in the fridge.



It will last up to two weeks.
