Papaya Face Mask
Papaya is rich in antioxidants as the enzymes help to rinse away old, dry skin cells and unblock pores.
Blend or mash half a papaya, mix with a teaspoon of honey and a squeeze of lemon; apply to the skin for up to 10 minutes, then wash off to reveal a healthy, glowing complexion.
Papaya is not only limited to sweet dishes but is a great option as a savoury lunch which also adds in strong digestion.
Experiment with a Papaya Bruschetta, pairing the fruit with plum tomatoes, fresh basil, red peppers, onions an olive oil laid on some freshly grilled bread.
