DIY: Enzyme peel mask

Hello everyone!

Here’s another kitchen “pantry” recipe, your very own home made enzyme peel mask.   There are plenty of different recipes, but this one is my personal favourites.

Why is exfoliation so important?  Dead skin cells, besides leaving behind a dull complexion, can clog your pores, causing breakouts and blackheads.
Fruit enzymes are the gentlest type of chemical exfoliation.  Enzyme exfoliation removes dead skin cells by biological action rather than physical abrasion. Unlike scrubs, this peel mask is safe to use on fragile capillaries and sensitive skin.

Ingredients (preferably certified organic):
  • 3 tablespoons of ripe papaya
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice

Why is a papaya-honey-lime mask a fantastic choice?  Papaya is naturally high in healing enzymes, which means that it literally “eats” dead skin cells.  Lime is known for its skin brightening properties, the citric acid will aid the papaya in the removal of dead cells, while honey is extremely hydrating and also helps to clear blemishes.  For more information, check out the related posts below! 

  • It is super simple to make this mask all you have to do it puree everything together and you are good to go.  
  • You can use a blender if you like, but a fork and a little elbow grease should do just fine.
  • Apply the mask evenly over your clean face, massaging with your fingers to increase circulation and to allow the enzymes to penetrate the skin.
  • Leave the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.  
  • Gently pat dry with a soft towel.
