DIY Papaya Enzyme Moisturizing Mask and Scrub

You guys are going to love me after trying this DIY Papaya Enzyme mask and scrub that I conjured up in my kitchen yesterday. It’s really easy to make, super cheap, and perfect for a girls get together because it makes a ton! Check it out!



Now that you have the instructions above, let me show you some behind the scenes pics of what this looks like when you do it and when it’s on your face etc.

This is what it should look like after you are done blending it really well.

Here is what the papaya enzyme mask should look like when it is on your face!

Since it tastes really good and it’s healthy for you, I snacked on the rest of the papaya enzyme mask mix while I was masking.



This is what the sugar will look like when it’s on your face. You can tell that I scrubbed it a tiny bit already because my face is a little red. Please be really gentle with this step, it can pretty abrasive. If you have really sensitive skin, you may want to skip the scrub part and just wash the mask of with warm water.

And…this is what my face looked like 2 minutes after I was done giving it the best DIY papaya enzyme mask and scrub it has ever had.

HOW TO STORE: This DIY Papya Enzyme mask can be stored in a plastic container in your refrigerator for up to 3 days. I have never tried freezing this…but you could always try it out and let me know how it goes for ya.

p.s- If you use the papaya enzyme and then hop into the shower and let it steam (not getting it wet for 10 minutes), it will activate the papya enzyme even more for even further exfoliation.


Hope you all enjoyed it! Let me know it you do one yourself!
