Got angry inflamed skin, but don’t like using harsh topical remedies? Did you know that some of the same foods recommended to calm inflammation on the inside of your body work double-duty to calm it on the outside?

Try my DIY holistic Soothing Acne Face Mask recipe - it’s so natural, you could eat it!


  •  ¼ cup papaya, mashed

  • 1 Tbsp oatmeal

  • 1 tsp raw honey

  •  Optional: 2 - 4 drops tea tree oil (or combo tea tree and lavender)


How to prepare

  1. Stir together ingredients in a small bowl. Apply to clean, dry skin (face, neck, shoulders, back - anywhere you have irritated, acneic skin).

  2. Leave on 15-20 minutes, then rinse off completely, and pat dry. And voilà, happily refreshed skin.

* If you choose to “taste” your mask before slathering it on, do NOT ingest if you have added essential oils!
