“I question not if thrushes sing,
If roses load the air;
Beyond my heart I need not reach
When all is summer there.”
~John Vance Cheney
I’m walking up to the market to get the ingredients for a little ‘home spa’ indulgence and thought I’d share my shopping list with you in case you’d like to join me…
Papaya promotes healthy skin by fighting free radicals and encourages the renewal of skin with a naturally occurring enzyme called papain. It’s also a fantastic moisturizer.
Luxurious Summer Mask
1/2 cup papaya, cubed
1 teaspoon plain, whole milk yogurt
1 teaspoon honey
Puree all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Apply to face. Sit back, relax and read a magazine for 10 minutes while the mask works it’s magic. Rinse well with cool water. Follow with your favorite moisturizer.
