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.

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


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.
