Papayas are loaded with vitamins A and C, which help repair the skin. Slathering it on your face also helps dissolve dead skin cells, eliminating dull-looking skin. What’s more, this mask contains egg whites to tone the skin and honey, which acts as a powerful hydrator. Amazing what three simple ingredients can do!
