Edible Skincare (update)

The papain enzyme of an unripe papaya is very strong so for sensitive skin, use a ripe papaya. Unfortunately the supermarket near you might not always have this exotic fruit available. For the yogurt and honey, get the organic kind if possible.

From my experience, cucumber also has an amazing brightening effect, but do avoid the eyes. As with any treatment, spot test first for sensitivity.

It might be a bit troublesome finding fresh ingredients, but I am a strong believer in natural solutions. I will do a post on another DIY mask this weekend.

Awesome! So that's another use for putting cucumber on your eyes!
