Kiwi and Papaya Face Mask

Kiwi and Papaya Face Mask. This is a gel mask that harnesses the natural fruit acids in kiwifruit, lime, and papaya to exfoliate gently, leaving the skin smooth and rejuvenated.


  1. Kiwi fruit, peeled – 1
  2. Juice of 1 lime
  3. Papaya – ½
  4. Gelatine powder – 2 packets


  • Mash the kiwifruit through a sieve into a small bowl.
  • Add the lime juice to the kiwi.
  • Remove seeds from the papaya, and mash the flesh on a chopping board, using a fork.
  • Press the papaya through a sieve into the top of a double boiler and mix with the gelatine, using a fork.
  • Put the pan with the papaya mixture over the bottom of a double boiler filled halfway with boiling water and stir constantly.
  • As soon as mixture forms a wallpaper-paste consistency, remove from heat immediately and continue to stir.
  • Add the kiwifruit/lime juice mixture slowly, bit by bit, stirring constantly. Set aside to cool.
  • When mixture is cool, apply the gel to your face, avoiding the eye area, and leave on for 10 minutes, up to 1 hour.
  • Wash off with warm water.
  • Most effective when used as soon as possible but will keep when refrigerated for up to 48 hours.
