8 SKIN-TRANSFORMING FACE MASKS YOU CAN MAKE OUT OF FOOD

 

PAPAYA
FOR DULL SKIN

 

1/2 cup mashed papaya

1 teaspoon honey

1 whipped egg white

If you’re searching for a brighter, more glowing complexion—and why wouldn’t you be?—try this baby. The enzymes in the papaya are a natural exfoliator, so they go to work sloughing off dead skin cells, while the honey and egg white bind the mask together.

BANANA
FOR ACNE-PRONE SKIN

1 mashed banana

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

If you have mild to moderate acne, you might want to incorporate this mask into your regular routine. “Bananas are packed with vitamin A, which promotes skin-cell turnover and helps pores stay clean,” says Zeichner. And while the turmeric powder wards off acne-causing bacteria, the baking soda absorbs the excess oil in your skin.

CUCUMBER
FOR ROUGH SKIN

1/2 cucumber, pureed in a food processor

1/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon brown sugar
