Papaya Enzyme Exfoliating Mask

  • ½ papaya
  • 1 TSP raw honey
  • ½ TSP rose water

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, cut your papaya into chunks and add to blender with honey and rose water. Once boiled, carefully move your pot to a table and steam your face (remember to keep a bath towel over your head to capture the steam!). Steam for 5-8 minutes of however long is comfortable. Then, apply papaya mixture to your face avoiding any sensitive areas. Now, get comfy! Find a quiet place to lie down and relax for 10 minutes while the mask does its work.

Hydrating Avo-Yo Mask

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 TSP honey
  • ¼ avocado
  • 1 TSP aloe very gel

Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth. Start with a clean face, then gently dab the mask onto your skin avoiding sensitive areas. Let dry for up to 20 minutes, then rise.

Quick Blender Moisturizer

  • 4½ oz almond oil
  • ½ oz beeswax
  • 5 oz distilled water
  • 2-3 drops lavender oil

Create a double boiler by bringing 2 inches of water to boil in a sauce pan and placing a glass bowl on top (but not touching the water). Then reduce heat to a simmer and add your oil to the bowl. Add beeswax and heat until it has melted, stirring occasionally with a wooden skewer. One melted, remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Add room temperature water to blender and blend for a few seconds, then add oil mixture in small quantities until emulsified. Apply to a clean face and store the remainder for up to 6 months. Be sure to clean your blender well and remove any waxy residue!
