The Benefits of Papaya
Hey there,

As we get older, we tend to develop 
more skin problems such as sun spots 
and large pores. And if you’re looking 
into a more natural skincare routine, 
these might be concerns that need to 
be addressed.

The good news is that papaya takes care 
of multiple skincare needs.

This delicious, bright orange fruit is 
jam-packed with lots of benefits. 

By applying papaya as a mask on your 
face, it actually helps to even out your 
skin tone. Just think about how good 
your skin will look without any makeup 
after a few papaya face masks. 

The same goes for your pores. 

While it's important to steam and clean 
out your pores from time to time, nobody 
wants them to be big. That’s why we use 
products on our face to minimize the 
appearance of our pores. 

But a papaya face mask can actually help 
diminish your pores, which means you may 
not have to wear as much makeup!

If you’re over the age of 40, then you may 
very well have some sun spots on your skin 
too. 

It’s just part of aging and yes, foundation
can cover it. But a papaya face mask can
actually get to the source of the problem
and get rid of them over time. 

To try this amazing, all-natural skincare face 
mask, simply mash about 1/4 of a ripe papaya with 
one tablespoon of organic, raw, all-natural honey 
and let it sit in the refrigerator for about an hour. 

Then apply it to your clean face, relax and let it 
sit for about 20 minutes, and then rinse off with 
warm water. 

To get the most out of this papaya face mask, 
try doing this once or twice a week and notice 
the difference over time. 

Papayas are fairly large fruit too, so you’ll 
get more than one treatment out of each one. 

These are just a few ways to use delicious 
papayas as part of your natural skincare routine. 

In next weeks post, I'll discuss the benefits 
of cucumber as part of your natural skincare routine!

Adrenal Support


As we discuss recharging our bodies, I have to tell you that using these two essential oils have been a lifesaver for my adrenals!!  I find nutmeg to irritate my skin on it's own, so I use a bit of coconut oil.  Apply 1-2 drops of NUTMEG over adrenals (found on mid back just about an inch on either side of your spine) first thing in the morning.  I then apply a drop of ENDOFLEX over my thyroid and a drop or two over my adrenals as well!  Check out the picture below. The adrenal glands are the yellow on top of the kidneys.   Need to get some of these oils?  CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED

  1. I've been loving this series, Amy. Sometimes the papaya we've gotten at the stores isn't too flavorful, so this would be a great option in that case (plus so good and natural for my face).
